  •  Small govt. advocate explain Fugitive Slave Law? (1+ / 0-)

    How would a slave-based economy have sustained itself when you have a small government? The South needed patrollers checking on Black people's passes. They needed government intervention when a fugitive slave mede it to a free state. There are lots of ways in which a slave did not enjoy the benefits of "small government" because the govt was not small when it came to them.

    The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman
