    I always find it amusing, but at times also annoying, that so many posters here claim to favor small government ideals and then turn around and support authoritarian legislation and policies. So, for those of you who claim to favor smaller government, and have the courage to have that claim scrutinized, please vote yes in the poll for all to see. As for the rest of you, if you would be so kind, please dig up as many examples of posts by these yes voters (starting with me) that stand in contradiction to their alleged claim of favoring smaller government.

    No.

    Not unless we shrink the population and the size of the country.

    There is a lot of waste in our government. so we could cut the waste and be a smaller more efficient government.

    Yes. Almost everyone wants a smaller government except for the politicians.

    Funny how some want the peoples power smaller and smaller.

    You have to wonder what their aims are.

    Some come right out and state their aims.

    to shrink it to a size they can drown in the bath tub.
