  • And our tax dollars fund all of this. We the people who pay taxes are the ones that keep government running.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  • This is not a list of things that the government does for us but yet it is a list of things that the government control. There is a difference.

    • It really could be both. These are the things the government does, what you think of these things is the difference I think you are pointing out. That, is much more up for interpretation and opinion.
