Bigger government means less freedom here in the US.
That is the sort of blanket statement which has led to our current problems. Bigger government does not
necessarily mean less freedom. Just ask the people of Norway, or France, or England, Or Canada. These are socialist states which have protected the freedom of their people, while also doing everything possible to help their people.
Socialism has been proven to work very well in many countries.
In the US we have embarked upon an unproven voyage of unfettered, unregulated global capitalism for the past 25 years. How has that worked for us?
