More government is good for you; the Irony. Follow the money and we see how the economy will perform. To me, a prosperous economy means ample personal income and ample opportunities for a number of things. The job market expands. Goods for purchase expand in variety and prices are low. The housing market expands. All good stuff and happiness increases.
In a bad economy, jobs are hard to come by. Prices for goods increase. Companies are stingy with pay increases. Personal income is threatened. All bad stuff and stress increases.
When we give the government more money (make it bigger and more powerful), we the people have less money. Less money means bad economy and the government has proven time again that it manages projects worse than the private industry. Shrink the government and more money for us, hence a good and prosperous economy.
It’s not rocket science.
