"I do think that many voters still remember being disappointed by Republican majorities. And I think this has not been a huge embrace of the Republican Party or the Republican brand.

Here's a few great quotes......
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government"
"No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session"
--Mark Twain (1866)
"The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other."
"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have."
Yes, these men knew exactly why it's best to guard against large government.
