What is the federal government's single greatest responsibility to the.
In my opinion the federal government has many responsibilities to the.
public, but most importantly is its pledge of protection to the public.
When I say protection, I mean not only from military attacks from other.
countries, but by supplying funds for all the needs of the citizens. As the.
population in the U.S. increases and federal funds decrease, the government.
tends to forget all of the little people who elected the politicians into.
office. The people to whom I am referring are the farmers and small.
business owners, who rely on the government's support to protect their.
investments. As shipping and international money-exchange has become easier.
and faster, the ability for small business owners or farmers to sell their.
goods have conversely become harder. I believe that it is the gocernment's.
responsibility to ensure that these people do not struggle to earn a living.
Bills such as trade restrictions, etc are created so these people can earn.
Another type of protection that the government must provide.
abundantly is aid to the smaller governments, such as state or city offices.
I feel that this is most important in crime-ridden, overpopulated cities,.
such as New York or Los Angeles. These are the great tourist attractions in.
America, but they don't receive the recognition that they deserve from the.
government. Without government funds, these cities don't have enough money.
for upkeeping and allow their images to become tarnished. This will cause a.
domino effect because less tourists will want to visit America. Less.
tourism means that these cities have less revenues and less importance to.
the government. Less importance means that they will receive even less aid.
Such an effect will ruin any bright spots which still are in the U.S.
The public created the U.S. government to ensure that there will.
always be a wise and fair leader for America.
