It seems to be a bigger talking point now more than I can ever remember. All the GOP candidates want to limit/shrink the federal government to varying degrees:
Romney wants government to slim down and get out of the boardroom.
Perry says government should be as "inconsequential " as he can make it. He also calls social security a "ponzi scheme".
Bachmann wants to kill the EPA and apparently the IRS.
“I went to work in that system because the first rule of war is ‘know your enemy, so I went to the inside to learn how they work because I wanted to beat them.”
And Ron Paul has made it plain for years that he doesn't think the Federal Government should be in the boardroom, the bedroom, or really any other room that doesn't deal with a smaller military.
So what do you think the function of the Federal Government should be? What responsibilities and powers should it have?
