Reduce Reuse Recycle: a new paradigm for government

It is my belief that reasonable people will come to conservative conclusions once they engage their common sense chip. However, sometimes the debate must be presented in terms people are accustomed to hearing.

For decades liberals have hounded us to “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” in an effort to get us to lower our standard of living. Not that any of those three Rs are bad, so long as they’re economically viable. In fact, I think it’s time we engage in a bit of Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling collectively, as in, apply them to *gasp* GOVERNMENT!

 

Reduce – Reduce the size and scope of government, at all levels. Government is inherently the most wasteful entity in existence. Reduce government to only what’s absolutely necessary for the maintenance of a free society.

 

Reuse – Government has oodles of overlapping agencies, mountains of paperwork, and redundant bureaucrats. The government remaining after the reduction must be fully utilized – we need value for our money. When the public servant attorney is finished with his law briefs for the day, set him out sweeping streets!

 

Recycle – This is the fate of elected officials who refuse to reduce the size and scope of government. November is coming! Recycle those wasteful, arrogant, busy-bodies back into the private sector where they can learn the meaning of hard work.
