About The Center For Small Government
The mission of the nonpartisan Center For Small Government is to make government small by advancing specific proposals to dramatically reduce the size of Big Government at all levels — federal, state, and local.
We aim to dismantle, reduce, and remove unnecessary, wasteful, or harmful Big Government policies and programs. We aim to shrink overall government spending, taxes, authority, debt, assets, and liabilities.
We focus on proposals that would substantially reduce Big Government and which appeal to everyday voters — so they can be implemented by elected officials or by ballot initiative.
There are plenty of activists, pundits, commentators, think tanks, blogs, websites and candidates for public office who oppose Big Government. They’ll tell you all about what’s wrong with Big Government Programs, high taxes, government debt, high government spending or government meddling.
We agree with those who advocate against Big Government.
But we need much more.
We must do more than decry the damage done by Big Government. Or the wastefulness of Big Government.
When we call for action, we must do more than merely “hold the line” on Big Government or fight against the latest expansion of Big Government.
We must go on the offensive – and put Big Government on the defensive. We must put small government in the driver’s seat.
If all we do is talk about what’s wrong with Big Government, we lose. Because when we’re talking about Big Government – even if we’re opposing it – we’re allowing Big Government advocates to control the agenda. They limit our choices to variations on more Big Government.
We need the opposite: choices for small government.
We must articulate and advance a small government agenda by proposing specific small government solutions that dismantle, reduce and remove Big Government such as:
- Dramatic cuts in overall government spending
- Huge, immediate tax cuts that benefit everyone
- Repeal, reduction and dismantling of Big Government laws, programs and bureaucracies
- Government reforms that enable us to shrink Big Government such as true transparency of government finance.
99% of all the political commentary, campaign rhetoric and election news coverage you’ll hear is about sustaining or expanding Big Government. The Center For Small Government is about shrinking Big Government. About moving America – a quickly as possible – towards small government.
