Great Statement

Hats off to Tom Degan at his Rant blog. He's made the most appropriate statement I've read in a long time. Maybe all the Democrats running against rabid anarchists this election can use all or part of this sentiment as it rings soooo true.

Perhaps we have arrived at that moment where the essence of the argument against big government has started to shift in a slightly different direction. Shouldn't the argument be focused - not on "big government" - but rather on "good government"? Efficiency versus incompetence? We are now a nation of over three-hundred million people. The very idea that the government should be made smaller - or done away with entirely - is beyond idiotic. Rather than wasting our precious time trying to come up with ways of shrinking it, we should all be working overtime trying to improve it.
