We do need much more small government leadership and a focus in government protective of liberty.
I absolutely agree with this! I'm a fiscal and social conservative who would love nothing more than to see the private sector grow and the public sector shrink.
I have a master's degree and would love to use my knowledge and experience in the private sector. However, at this time there isn't a whole lot out there. It's a vicious cycle; the government enacts policies that negatively affect private sector growth. So, those of us who would love to leave the public sector for the private sector are unable to do so because the economic climate caused by the very government we work for prevents us from doing just that...it's crazy.
I communicate with my representatives when I feel strongly about issues. Like many others, I'm frustrated because I feel my voice is being silenced along with many other concerned citizens.
