    Smaller government managed competently is not an option.

    That statement makes more sense than anything I've read on this board lately.

    Does anyone actually believe that Republicans are going to "shrink" government? Not even His Holiness Saint Reagan did that...

    I'm hoping that 2012 elections will actually be more about Congress than the Presidency. I'm hoping that this is the last election, at least for awhile, where the electorate just swings between the two parties.

    I'm hoping that the tea parties keep at the issues and don't get assumed by GOP or as likely down the road, by the DNC. We need an electorate that knows what they expect and pay enough attention to retain or vote out their representatives.

    As it should be since the Cingress was supposed to be the direct link/voice of the people.

    Assumed premise invalidates the poll. One might want a big government run by Republicans. It would have been better had you simply asked if we prefer bigger government or smaller government or if you had asked if we would prefer to have our government run by Democrats or Republicans.
