  •  Their ultimate goal (7+ / 0-)

    is to turn everything, social security $'s, education $'s, federal lands, natural resources...all over to their wealthy benefactors for private/for profit ownership. They use the levers of power found in government to stop people from collectively gaining the power to stop this or find recourse against powerful private interests. That's why they're so hell bent on disenfranchising democratic voters, destroying unions and getting the courts stacked with conservative judges.

    These "small government" types have no problem with the militarization of police, the security state, never ending wars and hyper regulation of sexual activity and reproductive rights. They really only want freedom from regulation for corporations to despoil & exploit at will. As long as money flowing through government goes to defense contractors for weapons systems and more troops to deploy around the globe, they don't care how big it gets.

    They are indoctrinating their minions to not expect the government to protect them in any way shape or form. Ultimately this government they envision is not "of the people, by the people, for the people" at all. The citizens will be on their own.
