Republicans keep telling us that they're for small government. They keep telling us that the federal government should not interfere in our lives.
What they do not tell us is that this philosophy only applies to government interference with the rich. The government, they believe, should allow Big Business to do its thing unfettered by pesky regulations that would protect the little people.
At the same time, they seem to love it when the government interferes in the lives of the rest of us.
They think that the government should control whom you can and cannot marry.
And they think that the government should dictate what a woman can and cannot do with her own body.
They say it's about "family values". But I think it's about greedy control-freak bigotry.
