I’ve worked in and around government for over 10 years. I started out as a libertarian skeptic of all things government. After a few years working for a U.S. Congressmen I realized our country would be in far worse shape if these guys were all as bad as I thought.
I know there are many people without my experience out there who still feel this way. I will try and quell fears and hopefully help discover a new path for dialogue in this country. . The real tyrant we face is corporate money in our elections. Corporations are not immoral but they are amoral and do not represent real human interest. “Government” has been a defenseless whipping boy in our recent political discussions regarding “class warfare”. First we have to define the role of government and then we can decide whether tax payers are getting what they deserve.
Personal highlight: Introducing candidate Barack Obama in 2008.
