HEY GOP. Why not trust the states to take care of themselves for once? Why not give people the power to decide their political lives locally? Why does the Right always need Big Government to take care of everything? Why did Bush send Big Brother into California to shut down medical marijuana facilities? Why does the GOP always want to use the power of the Federal Government? I get why you want to keep marriage sacred, but why put Big Government in charge of it? Why turn to Washington for something as sacred as marriage? Why does Washington have to be at the foot of every bed, and in charge of every ceremony? Why not give states and individuals more power over their moral lives and traditions? Why not keep Big Brother out of our sacred traditions? Why can't Republicans return control to the states? Why do they have to use Government to micro-manage the social lives of Americans? Why did they create the biggest, most expensive, most intrusive, most wasteful federal bureaucracy in history? A hidden world, growing beyond control | washingtonpost.com (If you don't trust government enough to run a laundromat, than don't give it the power and money to rebuild whole Arab countries. Why didn't anybody on the Right question Bush when he decided to trust Washington with one of the largest projects it has ever undertaken? Where was the Tea Party when the Right called upon Big Government to do such Large & Expensive things?) Do you know how massive the government needs to be in order to rebuild entire regions of the world? Do you know what the War on Terrorism costs? Has anyone ever questioned the utopian theory of "saving" Islam and changing the way they live? This is more of a Big Government fantasy than anything ever dreamed by FDR or LBJ. Does anyone remember Nancy Reagan's war on drugs . . . which blossomed into one of the largest, most ineffective, most expensive Big Government failures in history? This failure merely gave MASSIVE centralized power to Big Brother while wasting money and making things worse. It's like the War on Terrorism: the American people are no safer, but at least citizens have fewer civil rights and government bureaucrats have expanded surveillance powers. (why do republicans always look to Big Brother to keep them safe? why do they give Washington bureaucrats so much power to watch over them?) We know the libs like to grow government at every turn, but here is my question: why does the party of small government like to grow it even more? Bush's Medicare Part D represented the greatest expansion of Medicare in the program's history. Why didn't we hear a peep from the Tea Party? Why do GOP voters always let their leaders spend and grow government? Why don't they return power to the states? Why do Republicans trust Big Government to do so much?
