...In truth, the two parties are largely in agreement: The blob must grow. Yes, Obama Democrats want to grow it by about $6 trillion over the next decade, but Republicans are nearly as bad. Writing with Reason editor Nick Gillespie, NRO Cornerite Veronique de Rugy points out that the GOP would grow it by close to $5 trillion — a 30 percent increase.
If Republicans really thought the growth of government was unsustainable, they’d stop growing it. As it is, the truly profound difference on “a vision of government” is between those who believe that government “growth” is unsustainable versus those who realize that government is unsustainable as is....
...It was only a decade ago that we were getting by on 18.2 percent of GDP, and only about half a decade ago that a $400 billion annual deficit (about a trillion less than what we’re running now) was considered unconscionable. Where are the Republicans who are going to tell us how we get back to that?
Meantime, "conservatives" vote for a Balanced Budget Amendment which neither controls spending nor taxes.

There's never been much doubt that both parties own this. The TEA Party movement isn't against Democrats, but rather against Big Government and we have a better chance of controlling the GOP than the Democrats.
Of the GOP presidential candidates, none is a small government guy, except Ron Paul and he has other problems.....like he's nuts.
