In my opinion the federal government has many responsibilities to the
public, but most importantly is its pledge of protection to the public.
When I say protection, I mean not only from military attacks from other
countries, but by supplying funds for all the needs of the citizens. As the
population in the U.S. increases and federal funds decrease, the government
tends to forget all of the little people who elected the politicians into
office. The people to whom I am referring are the farmers and small
business owners, who rely on the government?s support to protect their
investments. As shipping and international money-exchange has become easier
and faster, the ability for small business owners or farmers to sell their
goods have conversely become harder. I believe that it is the gocernment?s
responsibility to ensure that these people do not struggle to earn a living.
Bills such as trade restrictions, etc are created so these people can earn
a living.
Another type of protection that the government must provide
abundantly is aid to the smaller governments, such as state or city offices.
I feel that this is most important in crime-ridden, overpopulated cities,
such as New York or Los Angeles. These are the great tourist attractions in
America, but they don?t receive the recognition that they deserve from the
government. Without government funds, these cities don?t have enough money
for upkeeping and allow their images to become tarnished. This will cause a
domino effect because less tourists will want to visit America. Less
tourism means that these cities have less revenues and less importance to
the government. Less importance means that they will receive even less aid.
Such an effect will ruin any bright spots which still are in the U.S.
The public created the U.S. government to ensure that there will
always be a wise and fair leader for America. This gave us the ability to
put someone into office, who fits the needs of the country, at present time.
This person undertakes the sole responsibility to ensure the welfare of all
"his" people. The government?s responsibilities are great, but with a
little control and careful planning, all can be accomplished.
