The Republican Lie of Small Government.

Republicans are these days unified in pushing the line that Obama's administration is expanding the government, acting fiscally irresponsible, leaving a great debt to our grandchildren.
UPDATE: Socialism! Ask anyone who screams horror about socialism! to define it for you. That should be a fun exercise. Because they'll give you some definition that actually describes many existing --and well-supported by the population -- government programs or they'll tell you about Russia before the wall fell. The Reagan era talking points still stick, unfortunately.
They have forgotten their own big government history.
And the sky is blue.
