"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. (Medicare Prescription) When the Republican Party ramped up pork barrel spending in a time of war. When the Republican Party expanded farm subsidies and ethanol mandates. 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.

That was the Republican Party not Conservatives. Conservatives are for small limited government which only does things impractical to do in a private way.

Whenever liberals want to claim that Republicans want big government too, they always quote cases where the leadership sold out. There is nothing listed above that a Conservative would want, but many Progressive Republicans do.

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.'

The President’s “if you like your Doctor, you can keep your Doctor” promise and his pledge to “bend the healthcare cost curve downward” are both fiction. What is non-fiction, however, is...
