Government is the institution through which a society makes and enforces its public policies. Government is made up of those people who exercise its powers, those who have authority and control over people. The public policies of a government are, in short, all of those things a government decides to do. Public policies cover matters ranging from taxation, defense, education, crime, and health care to transportation, the environment, civil rights and working conditions. The list of public policy issues is nearly endless. Note: The information about “What is Government”? is taken from a high school text book published in 2003 titled “American Government by William A. McClenaghan. The reason I am stating this is to show you the type of brain washing and Conditioning these public schools and their stupid little text book publishing companies are pushing and that is a socialist global system. First off, Its not governments job to be involved in Education; that job belongs to the states. Its not Governments job to give its populace health care by force. The only thing Governments are suppose to follow is the constitution, period. None of the things mentioned like, education, crime, and health care, transportation, the environment, and working conditions, is Governments job. When government get involved in those things disaster always ensues.
Lets continue with what the High School text book on Governments says: Governments must have power in order to make and carry out public policies. Power is the ability to command or prevent action, the ability to achieve a desired end. Every government has and exercises three basic kinds of power: 1) Legislative power – the power to make law and to frame public policies; 2) Executive power – the power to execute, enforce, and administer law; and 3) Judicial power – the power to interpret laws, to determine their meaning (which by the way is not happening due to the ultra liberal and activist judges who pass draconian laws. There should be term limits for supreme court Judges.) and to settle disputes that arise within the society. These powers of government are often outline in a country’s constitution.
