The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775, and after two centuries trying to get it right, it is broke. Social Security was established in 1935 and after 74 years it too is broke. Fannie Mae was started in 1938 and after 71 years it is broke. The War on Poverty began in 1964 and after 45 years it is lost and a trillion dollars of our money is given "the poor" and they only want more. Medicare and Medicaid started in 1965, only 44 years ago and they are broke. Freddie Mac began in 1970, only 39 years ago and it is too broke. The Department of Energy, created in 1977 to decrease our use of foreign oil, has 16,000 employees and a budget of $24 billion a year, yet we import more oil than ever before. After 32 years it is an abysmal failure. Who, then, could ever believe Government can do it right operating close to 20% of our GDP? They cannot operate a bank, a car company or a railroad as could private people trying to make a profit. But, who really cares when it is simply community they work with and support, never the free individual who, alone, can straighten out the whole mess. Claysamerica.com
