You forgot the FAA, which is currently in the Dept. of Transportation.

I'd also caution that outside of political junkies (like most of us here), most people seem to prefer to avoid change, especially large change. I'd like to see most of the changes you detailed, but I don't think a candidate for federal office is likely to win a majority of the thousands of votes needed by advocating something so radical. After 70+ years of increasing federalism and government growth, I think baby steps are the only workable way to achieve limited-government goals.

I was just curious if my view of limited government is in any way similar to how other people view limited government. I am often amazed at hearing suggested reforms (rather than eliminations) of various agencies uttered in the same breath as "limited government." I think that we've sunk so far into socialism that "limited government" is now simply viewed as the creation of a 10% income tax bracket.

"You forgot the FAA, which is currently in the Dept. of Transportation."

I wrote to eliminate the whole department. That would include the FAA.
