“In reality, those “conservatives” are more sensible and realistic than the ones clamoring for “limited government”..”
Ahhh.. Therein lies the rub. “realistic” = pragmatic = slippery slope = “how we got here”.
I'm just saying it makes no more sense clamoring for "constitutionally limited government" than it does to clamor for unicorns and chocalate rivers. The Constitution provides the national government with virtually boundless power.
