Just Enough Government to Get the Job Done

How much is Just Enough?
With any political philosophy it all comes down to this:
How much your philosophy attempts to force those who disagree to live under rules your philosophy promulgates.
The founding philosophy of America was Liberty.
The concept of Liberty implies live and let live.
We have, to our grave detriment, lost track of this basic premise. The result is the political animosity we are experiencing today.
The solution is simple. People need to pay more attention to their own lives and resist the temptation to be overly concerned with their neighbors lives.
Governments, at all levels, need to do just enough governing to get the job done.
What job is that? Well, that’s the problem isn’t it…
Opinions span the full range from fascist (100% government) to anarchist (zero government).
The scale goes like this:
Fascist, Communist, Socialist, Liberal, Moderate, Conservative, Libertarian, Anarchist.
Fascist is total government control. The further right you fall, the less government you believe in.
My personal philosophy has not changed. I fit somewhere between conservative and libertarian.
I believe we need ‘just enough’ government. And leave the rest of the issues to the people. People always seem to find a way.
Rather than go on with a list, all you need to do is apply the phrase ‘just enough’ to government as a whole or any agency within.
The problem of course is that now, today, it’s too late for that. It’s extremely difficult to go backwards from a bloated system rigged to perpetuate itself.
It seems to me that the only way ‘just enough’ could work would be starting from scratch. A do over. And that’s not going to happen. At least not without being forced into it with extreme pain for most.
Most people don’t want pain. It’s logical. Therefore ‘just enough’ may only come again, if and when the current system collapses upon itself.
