While deficit spending is certainly a major problem and will destroy the currency and financial system if it isn't stopped, a spending freeze, maintaining the present level of government, isn't the answer. We can't afford the existing structure of government, even if it was free. Our present system of laws, regulation, taxes, licensing requirements, subsidies, price supports, etc. has already destroyed much of our personal liberty and property rights and makes it increasingly more difficult and expensive to survive in any sort of business. Government must be drastically reduced in size, expense, scope and power, if this country is to be free and prosperous.
