How can you be in the government, yet hate government?


I get the adversarial political system - we the voters need to see the "warts and all", and so I get a multi-party system. But how can one of those major *government* parties have (or purport to have) a limited government platform with a straight face?

    Limited - yes, absent - no, or else the Constitution would be self-destructive. Law IS big government, be it a traffic regulation or the 1st Amendment.

    So, in their eyes, they have to get their hands dirty to keep the system, of which they are a part, clean?! I just can't wrap my head around that. There has to be more to it than altruistic self-sacrifice. They all sell pork to their home base.

    Most people who dislike their jobs don't do so as an expression of idealogy, which then would be and is hypocrisy, as would be professing it so vehemently and then becoming a part of what they CLAIM to be against. Deed must match word.
