What is the proper funtion of government?

Try this:

"It is not the province of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequence of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line, they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve."
