    Much of what I consider bad about government has also caused an increase in the size of government.

    So while smaller government does not necessarily equal better government, many consider larger government inherently bad, since in the vast majority of cases larger government means the bad parts grew.

    The problem is NOT the government size ; its the quality of people.

    Poor quality people can expand the bad aspects of government to their benefit.

    This also increases the size of government.
