    BIGGER!.....minus Trump.

    Your question is like asking dying star how big should it get.

    The answer, big enough to implode and shrink back into a light sucking black hole that no one can escape from, that's what.

    So long as people need to pay money for things, we will need government to buy them the things they can't afford.

    Big enough to "establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity".

    Sound familiar?

    You should watch the second video. People will not change due to government help, they need to change within themselves.

    Why did the Founders champion a limited government then?

    100%.
    That's the size it should be, with everyone participating in the government.

    They didn't. They championed one with checks and balances. Too bad the Republicans don't see it that way.

    Change is not necessary, unless it is to a system where people don't mind making sure EVERYone gets a piece of those things I mentioned, ESPECIALLY those in need. The things promised in the Constitution. You DO remember the Constitution, don't you?

    But Shav, you don't even get that in a democratic country, such as ours. How are they ever going to achieve ir in the two-party oligarchy that ia the USA?
