I’m glad that the Republican party seems to be returning to its roots of small government. The speeches tonight by Romney, Huckabee, and Giuliani all alluded to that fact.
Here’s a great quote that Huckabee brought up (however, he incorrectly attributed it to Lincoln rather than Ford):
“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”
