    Doesn't small government have to do with financial responsibility for those in government?

    Is there a government of the people, by the people, and for the people?

    What is the difference between a Republic and a Democracy?

    Conservatives want the government to control people, but not business and industry . Liberals want the government to control business and industry , but not people . I prefer the latter .

    Jacob, my preference is based on common sense . Business and industry MUST be controlled by the government in order to prevent greedy rich industrialists from harming the public and nature . But people must be free to do whatever they want to as long as they do not harm any one else , interfere with the private lives of others and violate their rights .

    There comes a point when people realize that what they do affects other people.
