River City is no different than anyplace else: nobody wants new taxes, but everybody wants more services. In some quarters more government is the answer, nay, the holy grail. Unfortunately, government doesn’t generate wealth – especially not with a “Smart” (e.g., limited or no) growth agenda. All government can do is tax what business it allows, and re-distribute the revenue in the form of services, which I grant government does very well. However, if you want your government do more for you, the simple equation is: Business activity > Services. For more of the latter, support more of the former. A quiz will follow shortly.
