I am 62 years old and there has never been a day in my life where one could honestly say that government was not larger and more intrusive than it was a year earlier.
Compromising on how much the government will grow is just slow-motion capitulation. It's time for leftists to have to compromise on how much government will shrink. Anyone who is not going to help make that happen is not on our side.
I have had my fill of big government republicans and will never vote for one again.
