ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The more government grows, the more it must take from the real economy to fund its projects. Further, government funding necessarily goes to projects for which there is insufficient demand in the real economy to satisfy the supply.

In the private sector, the opposite is true. Doing nothing yields no profit. Doing something, such as providing a service, creates a profit. These are the laws of economics and nature.

Why, then, do liberals fall victim to the false notion that government action will net some good? The answer: Because for some, liberty is too heavy a burden and the pull of utopia too difficult to resist.
