Sending is the purpose of government
According to our Constitution, our government was formed to promote the prosperity of the people. Prosperity is measured as Gross National Product and GDP is a direct result of consumer spending; not corporate ingenuity, not national resources, but consumers making, buying and selling. Government spending is Consumers spending their money through taxation. Without taxes, our government would be run by a plutocracy—Corporation Power. Without taxes we would be known as The Corporate Empire not the United States of America. Government spending is not only the purpose of our form of government; it is the essence of how we became the world’s largest and greatest economy. People who demand smaller government are demanding a smaller America. People who demand lesser spending are demanding a lesser nation. It is that simple, and the facts are there for anyone to see. Since WWII the United States has become a mass-market consumer nation and has grown into the world’s greatest economic power. Every other nation is weaker and smaller than the U.S. because they spend less. If we did not have a mass-market consumer economy we would be no better of than we were prior to WWII when America was a third world country with a smaller economy than Poland. All the nonsense about shutting down government spending is financed by the wealthy who constantly feed at the public trough. They are nothing but con men tricking people into believing they can get something for nothing. As P.T. Barnum said, there’s a sucker born every minute.
