Is Government Too Big?

How big should government be? Should it control 90% of our economy? 50%? 10%? Less?

I believe that less than $1 out of every $100 spent in our country should come from the government. That is a government that spends less than 1% of the total money spent in our country. The sad truth is that out government—local, state, and federal—dominate our economy with a monstrous 45% of all spending.

See USGovernmentSpending.Com for details on how big our government really is.

See his blog post on redesigning his site for why this is important to understand.

    Can you name me a single government in human history larger than a city-state that has succeeded on this model?

    Or is this just your gut feeling speaking?
