Small government was the vision of our founding fathers. It’s the reason America has provided its people more freedom and more opportunity to live a better life. But with the recent fake election of perhaps the most corrupt and radical government in our history, are these values vanishing?
Appearing on this segment of PragerU, Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers provides some perspective, summing up the political climate on Capitol Hill perfectly: “It’s just an amazing deal what they’re doing,” Rodgers says. “If you look around our environment today, it’s not like the government is helping anybody out in a timely fashion. It took forever to figure out how to give $600 checks away. To count on the government to help us out is becoming a joke at this point.”
Rodgers lauded Barstool Sports, a sports and pop-culture blog that created a fund to help small businesses endure the catastrophic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rodgers says relying on government is not the answer, people helping people is the way to go.
PragerU founder Dennis Prager concurred, adding that every society in history has shown us that, as government grows, human freedom and happiness shrinks. “The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen,” he says. Here’s more from PragerU.
