    This is part of “we will make the government so small we will be able to drown it in a bathtub”-Grover Norquist. However, that is only going to happen to certain govt. departments (eg. Interior, Forest Service, etc.); meanwhile others such as “Homeland Security” and the Pentecon are out of control–think Iraq occupation.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
