Bigger Government = More Scandals and Bailouts

I guess this is news to some people… but think about it. The government are people that spend money that’s not their own. There’s so much money though (millions and billions being spent), that people are people and they of course get tempted to take some of it. Not everyone takes some but a certain percentage will be weak and take money, etc.

So the more that this happens, the more people will get tempted and then the more this type of thing will happen. Makes sense, right?

If you want more scandals where the Government has to spend more of your money to fix things because other government people didn’t manage your money good enough to start with, then you want to vote for candidates or parties that want bigger and bigger government (cough… Socialism).

Bigger government = higher taxes = more money = more scandals

Less scandals = less money = lower taxes = smaller government

So why am I bringing up scandals? Fannie and Freddie. Why no investigation?? It’s election time… Democrats would be in huge trouble – we can’t have that now, can we? Just watch the big media keep this quiet. My point still stands… more Government = more scandals and more trouble.

Update:

 

Here’s Democrat Barney Frank’s deal that got this whole housing mess started, back on the first day of the newly majority controlled Democratic Congress took over. Democrats messed things up from day one.

H.R.1427 – Federal Housing Finance Reform Act of 2007

And this:

Barney Frank on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2003

"I want to begin by saying that I am glad to consider the legislation, but I do not think we are facing any kind of a crisis."

"I must say we have an interesting example of self-fulfilling prophecy. Some of the critics of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac say that the problem is that the Federal Government is obligated to bail out people who might lose money in connection with them. I do not believe that we have any such obligation."

Oops.
