Good government :: Columns :: More than merely “off course” by Rebecca Hagelin – Feb 14, 2006

This is my idea, also, of good government. From Indiana congressman Mike Pence:

“We need to stop, set anchor and reset our heading based on what we know to be true about the nature of government:

• That government that governs least, governs best.
• That as government expands, freedom contracts.
• That government should never do for a man what he can and should do for himself.
• That societies are judged by their treatment of the most vulnerable: the aged, the infirm and the unborn.

“But it’s not enough to know these truths. We need to choose to put them into practice.”
