I read on here,and hear from everyone how Washington and congress are broken. If people really believe that,should they not want such a group to do less,and have a smaller role in their lives? Is it also not a bad thing that 7 of the top 10 richest counties in the US are in the DC metro area?

Small government can be the most oppressive of all, and at least with the national government you can hold to get lost in the crowd.

The only thing broken is the obstructionism caused by the Tea Party Occupation forces in the House. Once we get rid of those knownothings and nihilists, this country can start making progress again.

Small government tends to be parochial, corrupt,, backwards, and liable to cater to the wishes of the rich. Just ask black folk what they thought of the small government in the segregated South. Or those ridiculous school districts in Kansas where creationists want to teach the bible in science classes.

California and Illinois have small government? No,I'm talking about 2013,not 1955 Mississippi(which I know the left likes to think we are still living in). I'm not even advocating getting rid of departments(though we should). Just hold the line,a little. It is also a fact that as government at the federal and state government grows,chances for corruption are greater,not smaller. You mention the segregated south and "small government". Well,Louisiana under Huey Long was far from having a small government,and it was plenty corrupt.

My oh my, I see you're into trashing anyone that has an opinion other than yours. I do agree with your opinion as far as Joaquin is concerned. However, if all you do is trash everyone who will be there to agree with you when you turn everyone against you even if you tell the truth?

There we go again with Joaquin's elitist Progressive ideology. As if the Progressives have done anything to improve the lot of the "Black Folk", or the poor. Since the Democrats became the majority party in both chambers, the economy has plummeted, and all Americans have suffered. The poor and those on the edge of poverty have suffered most. The idea of "Fundamental Transformation" of American into a "Progressive Socialist" country is and will be an impossible task. Like Bill Ayers has said there would necessarily be a need to kill around 25 million Americans to achieve their goals. Perhaps more Americans would necessarily have to die. Economic and racial strife stirred up by hate mongering hustling Progressive Socialists is the best way to get things going. Destruction of the family is a Marxist method. All one has to do is read a little history to realize what Progressives are doing and that their ultimate aim to subjugate our freedom.

I like how conservatives who actually do believe in small government as an ideology (many just want a government small enough not to bother them, but it's fine if it controls other people), vote for Republicans who promote just as big a government as Democrats. There is no small government party, and I really do not understand why anyone things that the Republican party is one.

I like Washington, I generally like much of elitism, and I do not support the mantra of small government. Government that works or works to the best knowledge of the time is what I support.
