I hold many democratic views, but I believe republicans from the distant past were right in attempting to minimize the size of government. Most investment should be controlled by capitalism, and government should impose the taxes necessary to safeguard people to a bare minimum. Government has been proven to be inefficient over and over again, for example I can have a much better retirement by putting money in a 401k than I can by funding social security. Large government also causes issues with the labor market, at the moment we have a labor shortage while a large number of people are collecting unemployment benefits. With lower taxes people can take home more pay and make their own decisions, driving an efficient economy.
