I hope they take the ball and run with it. Gov. Benson seems rather motivated and with some able bodied support maybe there'll be more than the usual lip service some political individuals give to smaller government.
If some changes happen and people realize they aren't just at the mercy of the latest political fashions, we could have some real grassroots motivation take off to make large changes in government. The trick is getting enough of the right people in one area. I hope the Free State Project succeeds. (CA isn't becoming a haven for freedom lovers anytime soon LOL ;)

We are not going to have smaller government unless the world changes drastically AND the American people change as well. These are pipe dreams based on misreading of American history.
Government grows through demands of War, the demands of the voters for more protection of rights and due to the complexity of modern life which makes society vulnerable to things unable to be addressed on a state or local basis.
We no longer live with the next family 20 miles away or the next nation months away.
