Marco Rubio is right for confronting the American citizenry about our addition to government.
Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio told an anti-gay marriage group Saturday the country is relying too much on the government, in part because of a breakdown of family and faith values over the last 50 years.
"You know what the fastest growing religion in America is? Statism. The growing reliance on government," Rubio said. "Every time a problem emerges, increasingly the reaction in American society is 'Well what can government do about it?'"
America became the greatest country because of its strong society where people did not sit back and wait for government to act, he said. "They did it themselves," Rubio said.
Hear hear! When we face a difficult situation our first reaction shouldn't be to run to the government for help. We need to help ourselves and restrict the government to the few domains for which its blunt power is appropriate.
