GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE SERVANT

To the editor:

We the people should be the masters of our own destinies, and government should be just the servant.What type of government are we supposed to have? Most politicians talk about our great democracy while our Constitution guarantees every state in this union a republican form of government. Our founders believed that a democracy was one of the most vile forms of government.

The problem with a democracy is that when the people realize they can vote themselves benefits, then it's not very long before the democracy is bankrupt. Isn't that what is happening today? Our politicians have become servants of their special interests.

Our taxes have become legalized plunder and are used to redistribute the wealth. This is an area where our government has no business.
