Quote of the Day (6.22.14)

“Government has three primary functions:

It should provide for military DEFENSE of the nation.
It should enforce contracts between individuals.
It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property.

When government – in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the costs come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom.

Government should be a referee, not an active player.”

— Milton Friedman
