The Nanny State
The Conservative Nanny State that is. The Red and the Black has argued this point for a long time; conservatives actually need the state. They need it to keep the rabble in line and they use it to re-distribute wealth upward. The government has never been bigger and it will get larger and larger with both parties because the liberals have a similar ideology; they use the state to re-distribute wealth by helping private corporations accumulate and hope some trickles down. It's just that liberals are just a little less greedy.
