Governments with guns are the top killers. Rogue individuals slay dozens, sometimes hundreds, and with 9-11, the tollran into the low thousands. But the millions and tens of millions are caused by governments with guns. Governments are the force multiplier of evil. These are not the deaths in defense of Motherland and Fatherland. They are the internal butcheries and starvations of Pol Pot and Mao, of the Armenian genocide and the millions who perished in the Ukraine under Stalin.
The article by BOOKWORM is provocative. "Because government is a force multiplier for evil, a vote for the small government candidate is a vote for good." Everyone wants the government to do something about something and that includes conservatives who want values protected and activists who want pipelines stopped. These "somethings" should be tested at the smallest local level possible and viewed as experiments. A vote for small government is a vote for good government.
