Limited government does not mean telling us how to live our lives or telling us who we can or can’t marry. It also does not mean telling us what we can or can’t digest. It also does not mean telling us that we cannot partake in activities that other people might find to be wrong (unless those activities harm another person). It also does not mean regulating the hell out of everything.
Limited. Reduced. Restrained. Constrained. Curbed. Restricted. Confined. Curtailed. Inhibited. These all mean the same things and this is what the founders had in mind when they put together our government.
There are people who claim to be conservatives and claim to be advocates of limited government yet these people also advocate for the failing drug war and for denying homosexuals the right to full protection under the law. These people do not promote limited government although they say they do. These people only want limited government in certain cases.
Bottom line – these people are liars.
