How do we make it "smaller"? Please be relatively specific.

Hmmm. Now there's a big topic. I will look into some specifics, but as a starting framework we could compare 1990 and today. There has been a 20% increase in population (250 to 300 million) but federal government spending has swollen from $1.3 to $3.7 trillion, a 185% increase.

Typical Bob dishonest post. Why don't you compare the government spending in constant dollars. How much have prices risen in that 23 years?

Sorry to point out that Bob is dishonest. I know we are all making nice-nice with him as the resident "nice" reactionary.
