Regardless of your level of eloquence or passion on a particular issue you have probably disagreed with someone at some time. This is not a bad thing! You have a right to advocate for yourself and be heard. There is nothing wrong with this but how and why you do it makes all the difference.

I have heard this argument from both sides of the aisle, “Government should operate more like a household.” Typically this is an appeal to bring our expenditures more in line with revenue which makes sense. I agree that it is not good to run at a 45% deficit which is around what we are currently running. However I have seen this go much further in recent months. In talking to people the rhetoric is more heated and has become, “The government should operate EXACTLY like a household and that is how I am voting!” The more I think about it the more I find this idea impossible, impractical and also misleading.
