If you think the government is more efficient with your money than you are...
...or less likely to misuse it
...or better equipped to make decisions that alter your life
Fine. I know the kids at MTV agree with you...and what do I know anyways?
I just think there's probably one area where we can all join hands and agree. We probably don't need the government's involvement in professional or amateur sports. We're ok there. I don't really want to see my Senator on tv trying to figure out if Mark Lemke took steroids. I don't need the President deciding on a college football playoff system. That'll work itself out. It's just a bunch of boys and girls playing games. Let's go ahead and leave that one to the guys that live for watching Sports Center.
I get that they want to talk about it so they can be on tv and take popular stances, but is that really leadership? Let's put our time and money into stuff that is important and that the free market would never support on it's own...like highways, national defense, public television and public radio. How would those ever survive without government help?
