What Is The Proper Role of Government?

What is the Proper Role of Government?

This is an article that I recently read from a blog that I subscribe to, Founders Revolution.

This is a really great article about, as the title suggests, what the government is (or should be) responsible for in a free society. It was written by Diane Rufino, who also writes for the blog For Love of God and Country.

Here are a few excerpts from this particular post just to give you an idea of what she talks about:

”The need for government…..is because absolute freedom is impossible. However much we believe that freedom is the natural right of man, anarchy is not feasible in a world of evil and imperfect men.”

”…the role of government is to protect individual rights…to protect individual life, liberty, and property…a government must perform three basic functions..Police…Military…and…Judiciary…the government of a free people does not regulate its citizens nor does it coerce or influence their behavior in any way….”
