    Since the left wing has no problem that I have seen with
    Cap and trade,
    Health care regulation
    Acorn becoming part of the government
    A line item in the stimulus package - under the heading "neighborhood stabilization activities" - sets aside $4.19 billion for low-income advocacy groups such as ACORN.
    Tarp spending
    Bail outs and
    neo-facsim .
    I want to know how much government is to much and what is a fair federal tax rate for a family of 3 making 50,000 dollars a year?

    What shouldn't the Government do for people ?

    Thanks?

    If government is not small enough to fit inside the Constitution, it is too big.

    See, I feel like that is a silly question. There is no doubt such a concept as "too much government" exists but that only exists as a function of how representative said government is to the people it is meant to represent. The boundaries that government may take are only should only be a function of how representative, responsive, and transparent it is towards the people it is meant to represent. There is no 'absolute value' of "big government"- a government that is extremely representative, responsive, and transparent can be extremely 'bigger' than one that is not. That isn't to say that that can change with a simple election- represetnativeness, responsiveness, and transparency can only increase with increased struggle and pressure from the populance; not from slogans and propaganda.

    If the government has the power of life and death over you the government is too big.

    As long as the death penalty exists the government is too big.

    Wrong...medicare for instance doesn't give the government the power of life or death over you and neither would health care reform.
