America's government has reached the point of being too big. A big government gives them too much power and too much control. Government in America is no longer for the good of the people, it is now for the good of the corporations. We are currently losing all of our rights because of big government.
A strong society and economy can be achieved by either a big or small government. The size shouldn't matter. What matters most is the people of which the government is comprised. I think our large government has shown that a bigger government does not necessarily equal a strong society. Although what makes a society "strong" is subjective, I believe that a society as divided as ours in the US would not be considered strong. Strength does not always lie in numbers.
