We must shrink government now

Our founding fathers would choke if they saw how big government is today–especially compared to private sector jobs. Consider this excerpt from today’s Wall Street Journal:

“Today in America there are nearly twice as many people working for the government (22.5 million) than in all of manufacturing (11.5 million). …It gets worse. More Americans work for the government than work in construction, farming, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and utilities combined.”

No wonder we are in such a debt struggle in this country! Just what does the government produce? Government jobs just don’t stimulate or grow the economy! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. We must shrink government now! The American economy depends on it.
