The American Family: Should We Run Our Country Like a Family Like the Tea Party Advocates?
The Republicans vehemently state that most American families live within their means and that our government should do likewise. A solid notion. But let's examine how an American family operates. One or more of the family members bring in income and it is used to support and meet, at the very least, the basic needs of the entire family and all its members. Even Momma Grizzly would argue that all members of a family should be cared for regardless of physical health or aptitude and that a father should not farm out a child simply because he does not want to have his income taxed. The American family unit is a communal unit. Ah Hah.
