Don’t think for a second the Republicans aren’t in favor of big government too though. Every Republican president for how long has increased the size of the federal govt? If they could get a secure hold on power they would grow the government to unimaginabe size. Looks like the democrats are going to have a hold on that until they destroy the country with some assistance from the republicans. I could be wrong though.
