Fortunately we have that history to look back on. How has it worked out in the past when Governments have become bloated to the point ours has? Look at Spain, Italy, Europe as a whole.

Have we as a race done some stupid things? Sure have. 20/20 hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Seems we are busting right now. The Governments coffers have swelled. At what point is there nothing left to take? Government Debt has tripled in the last 4 years. Government has been printing money and now the answer to cover that paper is to force the citizens to pay the note? How irresponsible is that? And why does it continue? Because enough of the voting base is kept happy with bread and circuses.
