There are major differences between running a for-profit business and running a government. The purpose of a business is to expand and increase revenue. Businesses grow by using resources wisely and providing a product consumers want to give their hard earned money to obtain. Businesses create wealth by producing a product.

Government grows by wasting the money it collects. There is no incentive to use resources wisely. Conversely, the more programs fail, the more money they can demand through taxes. Government depletes wealth by stifling production.

For Example: The public clamors for better education and they are willing to give money. Politician often use this “hot button” issue to raise taxes and fines, but this money rarely filters down to education because to improve education would be to cut off a source of guaranteed revenue.

An expanding business is a sign of health. An expanding government is a sign of disease.
I would lift the restictions on businesses, and let people make their own choices of what is comfortably safe for them. I would never use the force of government to legislate what is mostly a moral decision. I would encourage the expansion of satellite schools. The old One-Room school house has a lot to offer as the very young hear the lessons over and over before they reach the next grade. The older children helped teach the young and in teaching, relearned the lessons. We were once the most educated nation on earth and all the schools were localy run as parents banded together to hire a teacher or two. If we had eliminated the past laws restricting Black and Native Americans from being educated, we would not have many of the problems with poverty we have today.
