Without big government you might as toss the Consitution into the trash can because you no longer would have anyone to see to it that those rights are being conformed too and enforced. As it is some of the enforcement departments are underfunded and short handed.
Without big government everything would have to be done by private companies, this would mean that the wealthy few, the big corperations, would be in charge and you would end up being subjected to their demands.
No more "free" education, fire departments, police departments, emergency rooms, highways, military, etc.
The corperate news media would air stories paid for by the wealthy few, and the unions would be smashed along with safety standards for workers.
This can also happen if you allow the private corperations to control the government.
Big government is for the average people, the poor up to the middle class working people. If and when the political people elected are pro the people and not in the pockets of the corperate dictators.
So don't let those "stuck in a rut" voting habits fool you. Stop the movement by big corperations to take over our country.
