16. They want the federal government to becoms small enough to not interfere in
big business...they want to remove all the agencies dealing with regulating business, the environment, federal inspection (such as food and safety - they HATE OSHA).They want the state governments to have the say in most of whet the federal government regulates now, such as civil rights, voting rights, union membership and workplace safety, child labor, women's rights, all gay rights and minority rights. This is because the state governments are much easier and cheaper to manipiulate, and a group of very rich RWers could in effect buy control of their state and run it as they wished with no one to say no.

They want feudalism, and would have been pretty happy if we had stayed British, provided they were the landed gentry...

They want you and I to be peasants.
