Both parties are for big government, because that's what the American people are for. If you don't believe me, find a candidate dumb enough to run on eliminating Social Security and Medicare and see what happens to him. Republicans expanded Medicare and exploded federal spending when they had the power, except they also botched governing. Now, if you want to engage in wishful thinking, yeah you can dream about your small federal government that no party is really for aside from empty words from the GOP. But Democrats are better at running the government we have, even if it's not the one you wish we had.Originally posted by: bamacre
Let me get this through your thick skull. I do not support Bush, nor the neo-cons.Originally posted by: senseamp
After full GOP control 2002-2006, are you still in denial that GOP can't govern?
What you define as "govern" is obviously not how I define it.
I believe in a small federal government. You obviously support a big and powerful federal government. Maybe because you have yet to learn the lessons and warnings laid out by our founding fathers.
Government is corrupt. And not just half of it either.
