“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Spending Other People’s Money Wisely

2009-03-09-211610President Barack Obama says he wants Congress to spend our tax dollars wisely. In his Stoplight® commentary, Stuart Shepard encourages the president to follow through with his promise.

Spending one’s own money wisely is, well, wise.

Spending someone else’s money wisely is more than just wise: it is imperative.

Elected officials are the custodians of the taxes paid by the citizens.  They have an important duty to spend only what must be spent, and take great care not to waste the property with which they have been entrusted.

Those who don’t safeguard the public trust should be fired, and fired quickly.
