All Governments Grow and then Collapse

All governments grow until they collapse (usually into great yawning pits of blood). This is axiomatic. Since it takes Law to reduce government, the implication behind the claim that “we must vote in “small government” representatives” is that government can somehow delete the government. But a little thinking reveals the impossibility…by the same principle that renders self-sacrifice a putrid contradiction. The self cannot delete the self by its own power any more than the snake can swallow it own body by putting its tail in its mouth. And neither can the government, by its own dictums, to be enforced by its own authority, confine itself to any limitation, real or imagined.
