  •  I don't think there _is_ a "small gov't" branch... (4+ / 0-)

    or if there is it's "just enough gov't to keep the serfs away from the mansion door".

    It's time to Foreclose on the GOP House.

    •  "while handing over the loot to us" (4+ / 0-)

      It is important to keep reiterating that these people are not really in favor of small government (or no government). The evidence is the insistence on programs like the farm bill, oil & gas subsidies, R&D subsidies, fat Pentagon contracts, and anything else that transfers taxpayer money INTO the pockets of the already-wealthy-and-powerful.

      They only object when a few pennies of each dollar might go to the other 97%. Then suddenly it's "shrink the government" time.
