To be fair, letting corporations run everything is technically "smaller government". Republicans might be stupid, but they are consistent.
There is a huge difference between Corporations and local governments.
Who are both responsible to? Shareholders somewhere or people actually you know from local City Council meetings.
What is their underlying objective? Increase return of investment to shareholders or run a municipality most efficient serving the people living there.
You can see how municipalities are fought for their independence by state governments occupied by people dependent on campaign contributions when municipalities trying to become independent from Corporations in electrical, zoning (fracking) and now internet. There are actual cases where a state government sues municipalities in those instances.
Looking how this works can be clearly seen how senators vote against normal people so they can be bilked by Corporations in drug sales:
They are busy returning favors for funds received and their voters behaving just right lulled and sleeping soundly watching TV
You really need to open your eyes and use your grey matter for a change.
Donald Rumpelstiltskin has no clue and is probably only concerned about covering his dick's history, trying to make things "great" again.
