Seriously though, there is a difference between limited govt and weak govt.
There might be, but 99% of calls for small government are calls for weak government that doesn't prosecute white collar, doesn't protect environment, and doesn't provide any safety nets.
I wonder if that's true. Honestly, it is hard to say. Everything is so muddied and muddled these days. People say and mean one thing, others hear and interpret another. Sometimes because they think that the original speaker is mistaken in their premise, sometimes because they simply misinterpret their intent.
Maybe it would be fun to drop all the depressing Trump and Dem/GOP stuff for a bit, and try a different discussion tack, just for the sake of trying something new. I have an idea, will make another thread once I finish figuring out the details.
