Gamma earlier posted a comment along the lines of, "There is no good government but smaller government." This editorial does a good job of responding. There is always a problem when you speak in absolutes, and Gamma, while your statement may have been true at some point, I don't think that is the present case. Obama says you can fix goverment, and we have no other choice but to believe him. Otherwise, I think many of your improbables become that much more likely.
