Again, to submit my impression on what I have briefly read and heard about "Big Government" is the following: One of the defining characteristics of big government is developing programs for the public. Where this goes from all great and grand, to hell in a hand basket is that the government has not the money to implement said programs unless they tax the incomes of people that do not necessarily need said programs. Thus specifically a re-distribution of wealth.
Now I don't pretend that I know all things governmental for one minute, and have made the disclaimer numerous times, that the info I write is a representation of what I have read and heard with momentary lapses into my opinions.
So I make the request again, please ....Anyone that has a grasp on the differences of this subject and/or the many others that have been touched upon in this thread.....please come forward with facts that are irrefutable so the masses can be officially informed and therefor educated.
