Reason: David Boaz: The Empty Case for Big Government

The Empty Case for Big Government

There does seem to be this growing movement in the country thats anti Big Government from both the left and right. Which is good news for real Liberals such as myself, real Conservatives like the Rand Paul's of the World and Libertarians the Ron Paul's of the World. Especially with young people, people around fifty and younger, that we don't want to be dependent on Government to take care of us and run our lives. Just do for us what we can't do for ourselves or do as well but not try to tell us how to live our own lives. This is good news for the Democratic Party as long as Progressives aren't running the DP and its good news for the. Libertarian Party if they were ever to become a factor in American Politics and be that official third party that. I believe it has the potential to be that could compete for young voters and perhaps voters who are older then that in the future.

This is bad news for the Republican Party thats become more Neoconservative and Statist on Social Issues and. A big reason why they've struggled so much with young voters in the last two Presidential Elections, 2012 and 2008. Because young people tend to not like hearing politicians and candidates trying to tell them how they should live their lives and what they can do with their bodies. Women or men and don't like hearing Gays and immigrants and Muslims being bashed and to make them sound like they are. Un American or something, this is also bad news for Progressive Democrats and Progressive third parties. That speak in favor of Big Government when it comes to the economy and what Big Government can do. For us with our own money.
