As a child, I thought that the governments purpose was to "help improve the lives of its citizen and protect them from dangers". I never lost that track of that thought, but I have realized the naivety and yet simplicity of that thought. Our government needs to be set on a path of self improvement, efficiency, and growth. How do we do that? We as a society choose to adopt policies that reject the illusions that red-tape makes things safer, better, or improves things. Our governments goal should be to improve, not define. To enlighten not separate. To up-lift & grow not status quo. I hope that someday our leaders will get that message and adopt policies towards that goal. A smarter & active society is a stronger, safer society. We should be looking to include and up-lift, not divide based on ideological differences. Respect of differences not stead-fast faith in the past.
