    Unfortunately, neither the GOP or the DemocRats offer fewer services.

    I would be willing to bet that by "less services" they mean services for other people, not ones that benefit themselves

    Why not poll people on whether they would be willing to give up their own benefits for lower taxes?

    The next pothole their vehicle hits on a state or county road will have them on their cell phones yelling at a clerk in whichever government office they can locate.

    Yeah, this is the one I'd like to see. Specifics on what people would be willing to cut. Their own Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security? What about the military? I don't know how this poll question was worded, but I'd guess people aren't so quick to cut when it's coming out of their own pocket.

    Okay, just checked, here's how it was worded, not very specific:

    Generally speaking, would you prefer a more active government with more services and higher taxes or a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes?

    McCain won Nebraska 56 - 41, dumbass, so Romney is underperforming the 08 LOSER.

    Well, now that conservatives want their politicians to govern according to the polls,

    we can get that public option passed.

    "more services" could mean more fire department equipment or it could mean a county office that advises residents on installation of solar panels. A broad question.
