“Government,” as George Washington purportedly said, “is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Government, however, is absolutely indispensable for a free society to work — but it should act as an umpire in enforcing the rules and should not be playing the game.
Think about it, government is the only organization in society with a legal monopoly on force and violence. It is the only organization that obtains its income not by providing goods and services to others in voluntary exchange, but by force, that is, by the direct threat of confiscation or imprisonment if payment is not forthcoming.
This is why the free market economy, private property and limited government (Capitalism) based on voluntary cooperation is the only moral economic system ever devised.http://romancingthevoters.com/
