But you have still chosen to be in a position to be screwed. Your entire business can burn down, that sucks, but it was your business and, except in the case of arson, you lost it fair and square, no one forced the building to catch fire. There is a bad crop one year so the farm is lost -- well, no one forced the bad crop upon you.
It sucks, but you have at least taken your own risks. If you get screwed you get screwed. But, along the way, in the private sector, you can use your money as you will. If it comes to it, you can (literally) sell the farm, cut your losses and change where you are in the private sector. You might lose an important member of your staff, you might overhire, you might get sued, but YOU still got into that situation.
When it comes to money, I generally look to the rule of cost-benefit analysis. What does the government cost me? 25% of my income before I see it, 7% sales tax, property taxes, taxes on alcohol and tobacco, and likely soon a tax on owning a second car (how is my wife supposed to get to work when she works different hours from me?) Yet, for this, I get wars I don't like, causes I don't support, and people in office I don't trust. And I will admit, there are a number of things I benefit from in the federal/state government (mostly the highway system), but I will also point out that (as often as not), the government causes as many problems as it solves.
Oh, and one more thing, eventually this debt will have to be REPAID. How is that going to happen if the government continually becomes BIGGER? It simply cannot. So, this either leaves us with a government which defaults on its debt, or inflates the dollar to compensate, neither of these sound particularly appealing.
