What kind of Big Government do you want?
I'm a bit conflicted. Do I want a government that spends money and keeps an eye on the bottom line or do I want one that expands and cuts taxes? I think that this is the choice this fall on both the state and national levels. We have a national debt that is out of control. There is the cost of the war, homeland security and everything else that government does. I remember in the nineties there were rules that said if you proposed a tax cut or a new program you had to show an offset. This week, after they tried to make people 2nd class citizens the Senate voted on eliminating the ESTATE TAX. This tax affects very few people and after they pay it they still have a few million left over. Must be rough.
