The struggle is not about "the size of government". It's not about "small government" or "big government".
It's about WHO controls the government.
"A People Should Not Fear Their Government, a Government Should Fear it's people!" This phrase is about people CONTROLLING the government.
This is what democracy is: the people controls the government.
Today, the very rich, the top 1%, the elites, are in control of the government. They control the government, not the people, not the 99%.
To bring real change, the people should take the government back. The government should be controlled by the people, and only the people can democratically determine the "size" of the government, if it should be "small", "big", "enormous", "mid-size" or whatever...
