We're a HUGE country with over 300M people in it. That requires a sizable government to govern, and to maintain infrastructure. And that requires money.

Glad to see other people say this. It's been one of my points for years, AND that we cannot look at spending growth alone without accounting for population growth as well.

But I contend that our present rate of taxation is too low to do the job in a fiscally sound way

YES YES YES YES!!!! That is what people need to hear. Currently we have cut too much revenue. We are way too low to even maintain what we have and no amount of hoped for trickle down will show up because, because corporate growth is taxed so little (or not at all <offshore, ahem>) that it can't trickle down.
