Re "GOP candidates for governor on tax credits, liberty" (Opinion, May 12): Tim Donnelly says "big government is the biggest threat to our future." Why are politicians so eager to work for what they hate and so ready to accept our tax dollars to not only pay for their salaries but also their staff?

If people like Donnelly fear the government so much, please stay home and don't use the roads, electricity, police, fire service or send your children to public school or college. If you get a disease, don't use the cure that came from government-funded research.

Also, don't use your computer because that was also funded and created by the government.
