Many of us do want smaller government. In my case _MUCH_ smaller. If it's not an enumerated power then the federal government shouldn't have it's fingers in the pie with just a couple of exceptions. SSI & Medicaid because people have paid into them. We need a way out of them as far as the federal government goes. That one will take time. The size & scope of the military should & must be reduced to lean, mean, fast response teams save for the bases overseas that have to be present due to treaties that contain mutual support & defense pacts.

SS is a federal program which people paid into.

but SSI is a federal program which no one has paid into!


Let’s cut right to the end of the story: Ordinary people have already tumbled off the precipice.

There will be no dramatic rescue at the height of the tension, with crashing, ominous music turning to a sunshine ditty, a government handout straining to reach you, to save you from tumbling over the lip of the cliff.

Instead the government is going to intentionally bump into you, making it look like an accident, head turned away, mumbling an apology, much like a pick-pocket does in a crowd, with the object to lift your wallet.      

So, yes; however much they...
