Government is not “the problem.” Government is the tool we have for managing our society.
Taxes are not evil, but an unjust system of who pays them is.
We have a very complex society these days compared to the years between the Pilgrims and the Founding Fathers. The definition of “the common welfare” needs to include a different depth and perspective than it did before.

Freedom is expanded when we choose jobs because of interests, abilities and personal family needs, rather than on what healthcare benefits are offered.
Freedom and prosperity win when people don’t face bankruptcy over pre-existing conditions, or reaching insurance company pay-out limits. Freedom is having a doctor advise you on health issues, rather than an insurance company employee.
