Here is a really thought provoking piece: Does Government Do Too Much? [click to read] by G. Jeffrey MacDonald in Jewish World Review. Dr. Walter E. Williams looks at the real cost of looking to the government for more and more, asking: "How do we Fix it?" [click to read] ht/Greg

"People who strongly believe in an engaged G-d who "has a plan for me," were much more likely to agree that "the government does too much" and "able-bodied people who are out of work shouldn't receive unemployment checks," according to a just-released Baylor University survey.

By contrast, those who believe that G-d is more removed from day-to-day affairs — or who don't believe in G0d at all — are more likely to reject small government and economic conservatism." -- G. Jeffrey MacDonald
