Libertarians like to reduce the size of government. So, even though the Clinton administration had an eight-year record of reducing the size of government, and even though the guy in charge of that effort was running for the top job himself in the last election, a lot of them voted Republican --- ignoring the Republicans' positions on many social issues, which are anything but libertarian.

So, now the Republicans are in power. And the Republicans in power are reducing the size of government --- but only those portions of it which benefit the partisan interest of Democrats. When it comes to largesse for their own, says Dick Armey, "To the victor go the spoils".

Nice work.
