When President Joe Biden took office in January, he wasted no time passing a flurry of executive orders. Not only has the Biden administration worked tirelessly to roll back the policies of the Trump administration, it has demonstrated a commitment to an all-powerful government that is intimately involved in all aspects of our lives.
A recent poll by Gallup demonstrates that this is not what "We the People" want. At least 50% of Americans prefer lower taxes and fewer government services, compared to only 19% who want more. Moreover, 54% of Americans believe the federal government has too much power.
Gallup summarized the results by stating "More Americans typically prefer a limited government role to an active one, think there is too much rather than too little regulation of business and believe the government is too powerful."
This continues a longstanding trend. Gallup reports that "At least half of Americans since 2005 have said that the government has too much power."
What can we do about it?
First, remember that the 2022 midterm elections are just around the corner. Personnel is policy; the candidates you elect will set the course for our nation, so make sure you are voting for individuals who recognize the limits of government and are willing to take action.
Second, don't just educate yourself. Help others in your community to understand the importance of voting. If we don't select our leaders, others who don't share our convictions will!
