The Key to Smaller Government is Term Limits

Term limits make any “deal” made while serving subject to public scrutiny in shorter cycles. Legislation would be shorter. Government intervention much more limited in scope and all senators end up HAVING to earn a living working back home rather than pork from Washington.

It’s not only a first step but the most powerful. If we’re seriously talking about returning power to constituents – that’s most certainly it.

Terms limits are a giant piece of legislation that change the face of government but current leadership would never see the value in prioritizing it and frankly aren’t big enough leaders to consider it.

This congress is uninteresting, uninspiring, small & petulant. They see government as a tool of their own petty whims as opposed to the rich soil it could be. With this version of a Republican Party and this President, the government won’t shrink but our promise most certainly will.

Government Regulation as a Market Force

Government regulation IS a market force. Regulations ebb and flow just like supply and demand. Remember, consumers are also voters. People vote for your products with cash as well as at the ballot box. And while less immediate, public policy is also market force businesses SHOULD contend with. Your industry acting in good faith gives you leverage in designing better public policy so profits shouldn’t have been your only drivers. Serving the public good may not be as attractive (profit-wise) but until that goal becomes a directive as strong as revenue the businesses can expect regulatory checks and balances. I guarantee any regulation that exists today to throttle growth or protect consumers can be mapped back to that industry’s negligent behavior in some way. In short, unfortunately regulations are hear to stay… but is the relentless pursuit of profits… sooo…

We gotta learn to be less skeptical and get comfortable with the idea of taking risks…
