Small government defends our lives, liberty, and property from others. Nothing more.

Small government does not try to solve human problems that businesses, associations, families, friends, churches, and charities can solve better.

Small government does not regulate and control individuals or businesses where free markets can do a better job of regulating human behavior.

Small government stays out of unnecessary wars and strictly limits its military actions to the defense of the United States.

Small government is contained and transparent, so it’s easy to spot and root out government waste, dysfunction, and injustice.

Small government is dramatically smaller that what we have today.
