Limited government means that the gov't does only what is necessary for a gov't to do. You can check out our Constitution, where the powers of the branches are laid out, especially the powers of Congress. These are called enumerated powers and they are the only things the gov't is permitted to do. That has changed, especially over the last 100 years when terms like "general welfare" and "interstate commerce" were bastardized for the benefit of giving more power to the government.
