Government shutdown – what’s not to love?

With any luck, the government will shut down very soon. Hans von Spakovsky’s description of such an event (reproduced on this site with the gracious permission of the Heritage Foundation) states that, “crucial services will continue without interruption…It would pare down government services to those most essential for ‘the safety of human life or the protection of property.’”

We’re getting back to our roots. Isn’t what von Spakovsky depicts essentially the type of limited government the Founders had in mind?

The Fed will, unfortunately, continue “crucial benefit payments,” and they won’t stop collecting taxes (that would too good to be true). Let’s hope, at least, that everyone in the United States realizes how much better the country works when its government doesn’t.
