"Not if you consistently vote in people who aim for reduced spending and smaller government."

I've seen a lot of mouthy political bullshit along these lines, but no actual politicians who are interested in implementing it (lots and lots of politicians who want to reduce spending in areas they don't like, while increasing it for areas they do, however).

Always look over your shoulder because everyone is watching and plotting against you.
