What is the federal government;s single greatest responsibility to thepublic? In my opinion the federal government has many responsibilities to thepublic, but most importantly is its pledge of protection to the public.When I say protection, I mean not only from military attacks from othercountries, but by supplying funds for all the needs of the citizens. As thepopulation in the U.
S. increases and federal funds decrease, the governmenttends to forget all of the little people who elected the politicians intooffice. The people to whom I am referring are the farmers and smallbusiness owners, who rely on the government;s support to protect theirinvestments. As shipping and international money-exchange has become easierand faster, the ability for small business owners or farmers to sell theirgoods have conversely become harder. I believe that it is the gocernment;sresponsibility to ensure that these people do not struggle to earn a living.
Bills such as trade restrictions, etc are created so these people can earna living.Another type of protection that the government must provideabundantly is aid to the smaller governments, such as state or city offices.I feel that this is most important in crime-ridden, overpopulated cities,such as New York or Los Angeles. These are the great tourist attractions inAmerica,.
