I will accept. I am a Calvin Coolidge conservative not a Ronald Reagan Conservative. I believe in government. I just don't believe transfer payments should be a government function.
A road for example benefits a trillionaire just as much as a broke homeless man and everyone in between. Public education, social security, Medicare and things like that benefit certain citizens inequitably. Those are unjustified expenditures. A police force is even questionable as a valid government function. The rich benefit more from a police force than the poor.
