In his new book, The False Promise of Big Government:
How Washington Helps the Rich and Hurts the Poor Patrick Garry changes the debate by debunking progressives’ favorite myth about big government

 

The federal debt recently topped $20 trillion. So much for “the era of big government is over,” a statement famously made by a Democratic president two decades ago. What happened? Why has the crusade against big government failed? Because the advocates of limited government are making the wrong arguments.

Professor Garry shows why, and also reveals the right argument against big government. Progressives have created a massive and intrusive federal government by repeating this mantra: big government is necessary to help the “little guy” - the poor, working class, and middle class. There’s only one problem with progressives’ favorite claim: IT’S A MYTH!

The False Promise of Big Government reveals:

How big government hurts the very people it purports to help;
How big government is a tool of the elite, helping the rich, powerful, and politically connected;
Why America’s four richest counties are all suburbs of Washington, D.C.;
How the poor have been trapped in poverty by a federal War on Poverty that has cost THREE TIMES more than all of America's military wars combined
Why the two most common arguments against big government - about costs and constitutionality - don’t work;
Why big business loves big government and welcomes more federal regulations;
How big federal programs like Dodd-Frank and Obamacare spawn industry monopolization that hurts the average person; and
Why proponents of limited government aren’t heartless or mean-spirited - in fact, they’re trying to free the poor and vulnerable from government policies that harm them and hold them back.

In just 100 pages, The False Promise of Big Government lays out everything you need to know about why big government fails and how to overcome it at last.

The Founding Fathers were very wise in creating the Electoral College. This equalized the electoral power of small and large states. It wasn't a racial maneuver, but rather a means of forcing candidates to pursue the votes of large and small states. While there have been a number of close call elections, where the popular vote winner failed to win the presidency, overall it has prevented larger bouts of unrest from occurring.
