Permits, Revenue, & Government

From Beautiful Homer Glen, the concept of limited government causes division among conservatives. I believe government should be limited to things that citizens can’t do for themselves. Most conservatives agree with this statement, but the split comes with its’ application in real life. It has been said a tax should be as hard to increase as it is to get a building permit. I don’t believe a building permit should be required to repair your property while others disagree. I take it a step further, with the opinion that forcing a building permit puts government in a liable position when there is a defect in what the building inspector approved. I also see the permitting process simply as a way for government to generate revenue, as user fee. One problem is that some people, afraid to do repairs, possibly opening themselves to unknown violations let their property go. Money is tight and people only have enough to repair what is absolutely necessary. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/rights-permits-government
