Something I consistently notice about those demanding "smaller government" and "less spending" is that they always seem to underestimate just how big a country the USA is. How could a "small government" possibly look after that many people? There is no-one else but the government to protect people, after all. Who would, if the government was cut back? No other institution is designed for such a purpose.

The Republicans are responsible for gridlock in Washington, and worse. We cannot accept their "Pledge to America". It is the Republican administration of eight years that created intolerable disparities in the American socio-economic system. Their name calling tactics are scandalous. The Bush tax cuts did not stimulate the economy - we need tax based on income. While they attack Obama as a socialist, they cling to military and economic privileges that bear many marks of state socialism.

I am happy that the Republicans have finally put together a manifesto that emphasises what they intend to do if elected. It seems that over the past year and a half, they have done nothing but criticise the Democrats and the president. Most of the proposals in the "Pledge to America" appeal to me, particularly the elimination of form-1099, reporting regulations on small businesses and the pledge to return our public expenditures to 2008 levels. If the Republicans run the rest of the campaign on these proposals for positive change, I will vote for them. If they revert to negativity and hysteria, however, I don't know what I will do.

Repeal the health care law? So the attempt at getting Americans something remotely resembling universal health care coverage is bad and wrong? The 50+ million Americans without access to even basic health care because they don't have insurance would probably tend not to agree that this law is a bad thing. So much for "compassionate conservatism".
