    Well that's true, but if small-minded sociopathic people occupied my preferred size of government, they wouldn't have enough power to do anything stupid on a large scale anyway. That's kind of the point.

    Re: Less Government vs. Better Government

    I require both.

    Less AND better.

    Especially since less IS better, to a degree, and particularly given the current size of government in most areas of the world.

    Some few could do with more, of course.

    NO , and who are you to say this ? We are speaking of men from hundreds of years ago, at their time, they may have been great, but now, only human. And their "intended meanings" , not above debate either, but as they are not around.....

    It's a dishonest question meant for trolling and flaming quite obviously.

    You chose the words, don't blame me.

    Why not both? Isn't there an option for us to have a small, efficient government?
