"When would big government suit a Republican's needs?" many here have asked. Let me answer that question. When the Republican Party added another layer of entitlement spending.

When the Republican Party doubled the size of the Department of Education. When the Republican Party wants to pay more for the defense of Europe than the Europeans do themselves.

When the Republican Party promoted the 'ownership society' that helped bring on the housing bubble and all of its subsequent bailouts.

When the Republicans party creates new programs like their precious 'Faith Based Initiatives.'
