2. They really can't make up their minds whether they hate government or not
They like it a WHOLE LOT when they and their family and friends make tons of money on government contracts but HATE to pay taxes AT ALL.
They like paying for wars (and making money from them) but HATE social programs, unless they directly benefit from them.
