Warnings from Milton Friedman to USA’s newly re-elected president

(The following letter was emailed to the President.)

President Obama c/o The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President,

I know that you receive 20,000 letters a day and that you actually read 10 of them every day. I really do respect you for trying to get a pulse on what is going on out here.

On November 6, 2012 you were re-elected for another 4 years as President of the United States of America. I wish you well and will be praying for you as the Bible says that I should. I wanted to pass these wise words below to you.

I am hoping that we stop expanding the federal government like we have been doing the last few years. The federal government is not doing a good job at almost anything that it does. When it expands then it just takes away our freedom and our money more than it has in the past. This trend must stop.

Below are some videos and quotes from Milton Friedman and I wanted to share them with you. I will be emailing this post to you soon and I hope you have a chance to see where I am coming from.

Here are some  good quotes by Milton Friedman:

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.”
Milton Friedman

“One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.”
Milton Friedman

“If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.”
Milton Friedman
“The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.”
Milton Friedman
