Not that my august readers need this, but a couple of things come to mind in reasons not to trust government for a solution to life's problems.
1. The recent hullabaloo about a classified intelligence report claiming that the situation has gotten worse since we invaded Iraq. Whether the report is true or false, any politician worth his salt ought to be calling for the heads of those who broke the law by releasing this report, not making political hay out of it.
2. "Means testing" for government "charity" programs tends to promote the very behaviors (not saving, not working) that tend to result in a need for charity.
As Ronaldus Maximus noted, the most terrifying words in the universe are "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you."
