What is the purpose of Government, and where is it appropriate?
Just finding out people’s opinions on the subject. Please answer.
The role of the government is:
1. The creation and maintenance of a standing military for the purposes of defending the country from all external threats.
2. The negotiation and enforcement of treaties with foreign countries
3. To protect the citizenry from harm from other citizens
4. Maintain interstate commerce (including currency and interstate highways)
5. The implementation and enforcement of a reasonable tax code.
Everything else is either unnecessary or overreach and considering that the government is half assing numbers 1 and 5 and arguably 4 as well it has its hands full with these 5.
