We don’t need bigger government. We need to shrink the size of government.
I am often asked if, when I was secretary, I had problems with foreign men. That is not who I had problems with, because I arrived in a very large plane that said United States of America. I had more problems with the men in our own government.
The inherent purpose of American government is let people seek their own goals and to encourage them to be responsible on the various adventures they have on their way to those goals, good, bad, and otherwise.
Old forms of government finally grow so oppressive that they must be thrown off even at the risk of reigns of terror.
