I can go on and on, as there are a lot of things the government is handling, that they should not be. The less there is to do, then the less elected officials they are going to need. So while the power will be concentrated, there will be less of it to wield. The government shouldn't be allowed to give out subsidies or bailouts. I just killed off half the power business' have in government, and they won't need to hire lobbyist, and they can either make it or break it on their own. The last time the nation elected a republican, we had a terrorist attack. That kinda changed things up a bit, and people had no idea what to do. They handled it poorly. A democrat wouldn't have done any better, and would have been run out of office for doing it anything different. Because, Americans love their justice, and can't look far enough ahead.
It's fun saying ''I just killed off half the power the business has over government'' in writing. But what about real life? You said it yourself, a democrat wouldn't have done any better. So you can't reduce the size of government no matter who you vote for. Which is my point.
