    sometimes, but it always depends on the political structure, the politicians and voters (assuming the government in question allows votes). it also depends on how a person defines "big government"

    Big government always results in a loss of freedom. The reason is that government taps the resources of the private sector. Resources are leverage whether the private sector has them or the public sector has them. The bigger the government gets, the more of those resources they need to tap from the private sector. When the government increases in its resources, it also increases in its coercion. Hence, you have the relationship between a loss of personal freedom and the gain of government resources.
