Wisdom from Edmund Burke

by Russ Roberts on February 17, 2011

in Country Problems

Burke evidently said (HT: Katrin van der Vaart):

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

The country is in trouble. Continuing to spend 25% of GDP through the federal government is not good for children or other living things. Continuing to spend more than $1.5 trillion than we take in via taxes is another mistake. Do what you can to slow down the gravy train for the few at the expense of the many. Do what you can even if it’s a little. Speak to your friends and neighbors and family. Call or write a politician. Do something.
