Many Republicans fancy themselves to be for small government. In fact, they are for HUGE government. How many people here think the government should know a citizens favorite color? How many people here think the government should know a citizens favorite flavor of ice cream? How many people here think the government should know a citizens favorite sexual position? How many people here think the government should know a citizens sexual orientation? Republicans believe a government database should contain such useful information on its citizens.

Let's look at the Republican Party during the eight year George W Bush 'Reign of Error.' The Republican Party led a powerful political machine built on a dazzling use of patronage and a belief that government was a weapon to be wielded in the interest of the moneyed class and on behalf of corporate interests. At the end of the day, the Republican Party was very successful at redistributing wealth to its constituents. Analyze this George W Bush statement in Se[tember of 2008. "We need $700 billion to recapitalize the American financial system." What does it really mean?

Republicans pretend to be for 'small' government, but are for HUGE government. Republicans pretend to be for 'free' markets, but are really for rigged markets. Republicans say they are for 'taking responsibility', but their method of accepting responsibility is to always blame the most convenient Democrat for all the messes they created. Republicans always vigorously wave the American flag but, in fact, their actions put our beloved country last. Cherish the tax cut! Did the Greatest generation have tax cuts and Tea Parties during WWII when we were facing real Fascists? Let's face it, when a Republicans tells you that he or she is in favor of 'small government and free markets,' aren't both of these lies?

Should we Americans be on-board with all the Republican spending programs like; 1. ethanol mandates 2. paying for missile defense for the EU 3. the 100 year social engineering project in Iraq 4. making Afghanistan a modern democratic state 5. increasing entitlement spending by passing Medicare Prescription 6. Expanding NATO to include Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia Once again, Republicans believe in HUGE government, they just can't be bothered to pay for it. Let's not forget that government expansion was two and a half times bigger under George W. Bush than under 'Bubba' Clinton.
You Republicans like to pass out the cake and ice cream but will whine when it comes to taking the medicine. You Republicans mandated $4 billion a year in ethanol subsidies alone, as well as drastically increased cotton, sugar, soybean, corn, wheat handouts, billed to the national credit card. You Republicans doubled the size of the Department of Education, billed to the national credit card. You Republicans started new government programs, like Faith Based Initiatives, and then prattle on about how you want small government.
You Republicans like to pass out the cake and ice cream but will whine when it comes to taking the medicine. It was you Republicans (2001-2007) who spent more than the previous set of Democrats . They increased pork barrel spending from 3,000 to 14,000 projects a year, billed to the national credit card. You Republicans have engaged in a eight year social engineering project in the Middle East that costs $120 billion a year and may well last another 100 years, billed to the national credit card. You Republicans have added another layer of entitlement spending that costs $50 billion a year called Medicare Prescription, billed to the national credit card.

Again, "When would big government suit a Republican's needs?" You and many here have asked. Let me answer that question. When the Republican Party removed 'the evil Saddam Hussein who killed hundreds of thousands of his fellow Iraqis' and believe that it's the American people's responsibility, rather than the Iraqi people's responsibility to free 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.'
