“It would be nice if more people took the need for smaller government, limited in its scope and authority, seriously. It is not just a matter of the need to preserve our individual liberties; the great Leviathan federal government is expensive beyond our means to support it, devours everything in its path, is inefficient and often stands in the way of real solutions, all of which is costing the economy just under 25 percent of total annual gross domestic product through all means and measures.

These costs are not insignificant. As the Competitive Enterprise Institute documents in the latest edition of its annual report ‘Ten Thousand Commandments,’ the so-called hidden tax imposed by the regulatory state has reached $1.88 trillion.”
