Are you surprised by Gallup’s recent findings on big government?
When asked to choose among big government, big labor and big business, Americans overwhelmingly name big government as the biggest threat to the country in the future. The 69% choosing big government is down slightly from a high of 72% in 2013, the last time Gallup asked the question, but is still one of the highest percentages choosing big government in Gallup’s 50-year trend.
Limited-government presidential candidates, make your case. When it comes to health care, education, taxes, privacy concerns, and so many issues, Americans are rejecting the concept of big government and seeking alternatives that empower individuals.
GOP machine, put the big-government Republicans aside. I’ve been saying for years that a big-government party already exists; there’s no need for two. Instead, embrace limited-government consistency across the board.
Hillary Clinton is not only a big-government candidate, but an incredibly flawed one. GOP, get on it.
