Never. There are many legitimate functions of government. Despite what some believe, Homo sapiens are only a few seconds (geological scale) from baboons. We need a government to control conflicts between each other and outsiders.
What we don’t need is a government that tries to tell us how to run every aspect of our lives. But the weak have discovered they can band together and use the force of government to impose their will on everyone else. And this trend is accelerating so fast that the logical outcome can been seen. And it’s not a Democratic republic form of government!
The size of government MUST be reduced, or we need to accept the fact that the good ole USA is gone! We became a superpower through the hard work and innovation that a free, capitalistic society fosters. This has been very much transformed. Look at the result. We are not respected, and the dollar will soon be worth a lot less. Only the retarded or insane expect more of the same to produce better results.
Let’s not abolish the government, but we really need to reduce its size and rebuild only the parts that work.
