Where do we draw the line on Governmental intervention when it comes to the economy? What rights do they have a duty to protect, and what should they leave alone?

My opinion isn't set in stone, so I'll examine each argument's validity.

Perhaps present an argument of your own before you examine another's validity?

I'm just asking for everyone's opinion. That's all. What's yours?

Ah, sounded like you wanted to judge the validity of people's opinion without first providing one of your own.

In a perfect world, I'd kick the federal government as far out of the economy as possible. Lower taxes, possibly submit a flat tax plan, decrease or eliminate small-business crushing restrictions, and allow the free market to actually work like it's supposed to. Free market capitalism is the greatest wealth builder in history, but it only works if the government doesn't butt in and muck it up.

Interesting. I find the same, actually. The Government has to much say in the business-worker relationship that it hampers voluntary trade. Anyone with different opinions? I'd like to hear from both sides.
