“smaller government does not make more moral government.............you are just relying on the practice of magical thinking. If I repeat smaller government enough it will come to pass. smaller government is just less for the special interests to control...........unless of course your smaller government is no government then you have anarchy, no control at all...........................”

Robert Washington on Dec 8, 2013 at 20:57:38

“SIGH.....
I am not counting on smaller government to be governed by more moral people. Smaller government is simply more transparent and accessible. So in my community, I can keep close tabs on where the money goes and who is doing what.
But let me use your words. You say "smaller government is just less for special interests to control". Well....ding, ding,ding ding....we have a winner! Instead of sending money and power to Washington, why not keep the money and power in the hands of the people? And their local governments? Shifting money and power to Washington simply increases the size of the trough and works against the interests of the People, whether they be from the right or the left.”

“LOL, you think the power vacuum of your "smaller government" will not be filled by the church or corporations? your smaller government will not be controlled by special interests? How does it make it harder for special interests to control smaller government?

Government is people, you are anthropomorphizing government as if it is being unto itself.”

“I live in a community of 1,200 homes. We have a home owner's association. I can pretty much tell you where every penny of my fees go.
At the federal level, we have HUD mysteriously losing $42 billion and we have spent $100 billion on "green" companies during the past five years.....90% of which have failed.
The bigger the size of government, the more waste and fraud you get and the more special interests control policy. If this wasn't the case, billions wouldn't be spent by special interest lobbyists. Unfortunately, the only entity that doesn't have a lobby group in Washington is the American People.”

“There is no mandated government abortion in this country, the mandate is for insurance that women can choose to use for BC and while their are Catholics who would agree with you, you don't speak for all of them.

Your statement is just half truths and platitudes, propaganda.

“technically is the key word there, since the proponents of slavery, jim crow and those who opposed civil rights legislation were people trying to maintain the traditional social and economic institutions of slavery and white supremacy.

Those people who were abolitionists and opposed jim crow were progressives of their time.

The pro slavery dems complained of the oppressive federal government and were proponents of states rights.

The current GOP is not progressive and they promote states rights and fear the federal government.

Does not matter what party they belong to............they were conservatives.”
