The mission of the Center for Small Government is to advance proposals to eliminate or downsize the many federal, state and local government programs and agencies that do more harm than good.

Our aim is to make government small – strictly limited to defending our lives, liberty and property.

We want people and businesses to be free, so long as they don’t harm anyone else. We want government to keep its nose out of the economy and to stay out of foreign entanglements, especially war.

Our goal is to popularize these small government proposals so that Americans demand them, leading to their implementation.

Small government is beautiful, because it enables the best of humanity: peace, harmony, prosperity, freedom, health, and happiness.
