Nation of Whiners

How Whining Grows Government
When politicians hear us complain about our problems, they try to solve them. Just look at our massive, bloated government and our ginormous national debt — that was all built by complaining. People whined about stuff, and some politicians overheard and were like, "I bet I can solve this problem and be super popular! And I know the perfect solution: a new massive bureaucracy that costs billions of dollars!" And, of course, the only thing a massive government bureaucracy has ever solved is the problem of Americans having too much time and money.
Not to mention there is also truth in the 'power of positive thinking' and it works even better in reverse, negative thinking causes negative outcomes. In fact, beyond thinking, positive or negative talking brings an even stronger response.
