What is the purpose of government?
More specifically, what is the purpose of our federal government?
And on a related note, is our current government doing things today that fit that purpose?
Yes, I have an answer below. But i don't want you to read it quite yet. Assuming you have the time, pop open the notepad on your computer and type that answer in. Take that and paste it into your comments before you respond to my answer. I kind of just want to see what people think about the purpose of government in general, not any particular administration.
Ok, if you're down to this point and you haven't at least thought about your answer, shame. Go back and read the instructions. For the rest of you, here's some somewhat unrelated images to separate the question from the answer.
