Why are you only asking the conservatives. I am an independent or no-party person. I vote for Democrats, Republicans and independents. I am not sure what people mean by too much government interference.
Yes, the government keeps records on births, deaths and missing.
The government collect taxes to fund the space program, to have money to aid in the aftermath of a natual disater.
The government funds the military, pays air traffic controllers, regulate the use of airwaves so no channel frequency is hijacked.
The government regulates the quality of food, safety in the workplace and public safety.
There are wasteful programs. Of course what is wasteful to some people is important to others. Levee construction in Louisiana by the federal government is expensive and necessary to keep the Mississippi RIver within it banks. Most people probably do not care. We saw in Katrina what happens when two governing bodies are responsible for one levee. One side held up and the other collapsed. What things should the government not be doing, and which level is responsible for these alleged misdeeds.
