Show me where I have assumed that. I contend that it is not the purvue of the federal government to do anything about it. The federal government needs to shrink to a manageable size and take care of it's constitutional obligations without usurping the rights of the states and the individual.

Where have I ever made that assumption? Our public school system is awful and needs to be abolished. Fortunately it is not much of the business of the federal government, even today. We need to shut down the Department of Education and get our own states to make better decisions.

We're sinking, they are NOT.
I don't think I have commented on gas prices in other countries or the value of the dollar.

My hope is not in government, but could be enhanced by less government.

I may be able to agree with you on this statement, though most of the specific points were we to list them would likely be reversed.
