Who's Looking Out For You? Not the Government!

In last weekend's edition of USA Today there is a graph showing that 51% of people watching the Super Bowl watch for the commercials, 49% for the game itself. I love both the game and the creativity of the commercials, so I intently watch both.

One commercial that really caught my eye was the U.S. Census Bureau’s thirty second commercial. It cost taxpayers $2.5 million. In a time of tough economic and financial difficulties for American families, I couldn't believe the US government could waste money so flagrantly. I mean, $2.5 million for commercial during the Super Bowl!

This is a government that's not looking out for you, that doesn't care about the financial well-being of American families or how much your family has to pay in taxes.

The federal government seems to look out for everyone except the hard-working families who pay the government's bills. We're supposed to shut up and just support the government that treats us like serfs.
