Thank you, these concepts seem to have faded into the background and they need to be part of the national discussion­.

Ronald Reagan was absolutely wrong when he said that government was the problem, government can only be the problem if we make it so. Such as corporatio­ns are beholden to and driven by the shareholde­rs, so too is the government­, beholden to and driven by the people.
