Suppose you had to choose ONE of these two options:
MINIMAL government--Government would provide good roads and protect you from the wrongdoings of other people. Everything else you have to provide for yourself and your family--education, health care, housing, food, transportation, etc. Government is obligated to leave you strictly alone and not interfere with your lifestyle, business, family matters, home, or anything else. Taxes are minimal.
MAXIMUM government--Government provides everything--food, housing, education, health care, transportation, etc. It also regulates all aspects of your life, including "protecting" you from yourself and consuming a huge portion of your income as taxes.
Which would you choose?
