Who Do I Trust… and Why Should I Trust Their Solutions?

ORIGINALLY POSTED 2/25/2011

My answer is simple, yet complex. My answer starts with you, the individual. You cannot put your trust in any organization, government entity, politician or sometimes… other individuals.

We have become a society that has relinquished our responsibilities to other people and to groups that we think can take care of everything. We expect the government to give us everything we need — from healthcare to retirement. We then turn our heads from others in need because we have given those duties to a multitude of government programs.

Our country was founded by individuals… for individuals. For the last approximately 100 years, things have slowly changed. We now have a powerful Federal Government that can drastically change our lives with one stroke of the pen. As “We the Little People” have been fighting between Right and Left, Republican and Democrat, rich and poor… the politicians have been slowly taking away our liberties. Most of them believe that they know what is best for us and how we should live our lives.

Do you believe that Man can govern himself? If not, how do you trust another man to make decisions for you that would be in your best interest?

If “I” am the solution, why should I trust myself?  Each person will have their own answers on why or how they can trust themselves. I am learning to put my trust in God and looking to His words to guide me in the right direction. Am I perfect because I say I am a Christian? No — But I do know that I make better decisions for myself and my family than any politician.

The solution starts with you.
