Big government (sometimes capitalized as Big Government) is a term generally used by political conservatives, laissez-faire advocates, or libertarians to describe a government which is excessively large, corrupt and inefficient, or inappropriately involved in certain areas of public policy or the private sector. In this latter sense, the term may also be used by political liberals in relation to government policies which attempt to regulate matters considered to be private or personal, such as private sexual behavior. - Source: Wikipedia
Scandals are nothing new in Washington. Just about every president has faced an accusation of misconduct, whether moral or criminal. It should be no surprise that the Obama administration finds itself in the midst of one (well actually three).
President Obama borrows a lot of his ideas from his friends in Europe. The continent's Big Government welfare state is an inspiration for someone who thinks the cure for too much spending is more spending.
Not everything that comes out of the deep-blue left coast is bad. A state that gave Barack Obama a 15-point margin should expect taxes to go up because Big Government liberalism is all about "soaking the rich" and redistributing the result.
Celebrity climate alarmist Al Gore has some competition. Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the ranks of high-profile folks eager to warn the world about global warming.
Steve Forbes is chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media. The flagship Forbes magazine, long regarded as America's best business periodical, has a circulation of nearly 1 million.
Anyone who reads my columns has heard me say before that what unites the left is a vision of an ideal society, and what unites the right is a vision of an ideal state. The left will take or use any state necessary to get to that ideal society.
Now the fun begins. Nothing can fire the anger of an American like the arrogance of a government lawyer with his foot on the throat of a helpless citizen, and the justices of the Supreme Court are the government lawyers with the biggest feet of all.
President Obama has begun a war against free-market capitalism because, he says, we have tried the capitalism approach and it hasn't worked ("Obama attacks inequality while soliciting big-money donors," Web, Tuesday). Where has he been all these years?
Big government is unable to run just about anything efficiently with any semblance of cost effectiveness ("Why Obamacare is bad for America's health," Commentary, Monday).
Food is in the news. Specifically, the food Big Government wants you — or your children — to eat.
As the Super Tuesday results are being digested, hopes will surely linger for a last-minute dream candidate to lap today's Republican presidential field.
Can you have Breitbart.com without Andrew Breitbart?
Conservative voters have a message for the Republican establishment: Not so fast. The Washington-knows-best GOP insiders who gave us John McCain, George W. Bush, Bob Dole and George H.W. Bush are now pushing Mitt Romney. Conservative voters are pushing back. Hard.
Every election, we're told, is important - critical, even. But it's more than the usual hyperbole this time. Right now, our nation's on the wrong path. If nothing is done, our next generation will experience not liberty, freedom and prosperity, but crushing debt, higher taxes and job-killing regulations.
The congressional super-duper, new-and-improved deficit committee, organized to enable Congress to do what it was sent to Washington to do, failed.
