Government too large for our good

This letter to the editor in the Sun states,
I want the size, scope, power and reach of the federal government reduced. Why? Because when any human driven entity becomes very powerful, it eventually becomes “out of balance,” and it abuses its “power and reach.”
Later, it states,
Creating giant deficits through awful economic policy, manipulating the housing market leading to a housing value collapse, going to war without proper taxes to fund the effort, stealing money from the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for other government priorities, enacting immigration laws and then not enforcing them, spending billions of “borrowed” dollars on foreign aid and nation-building efforts, allowing our national infrastructure to age because revenue was spent foolishly on other items, using the power and reach of the federal government to attempt “social engineering” of American society, etc. — all this carnage was caused by our federal government and its size, scope, power and reach.
This seems to summarize the effects of big government very well.

We have let 2 parties control our government for over 100 years. It is time for new management and smaller government.
