91. I'm sorry...
I forgot you're a liberal and I need to be VERY specific.

Smaller FEDERAL government, which has nothing to do with your local police.

Here's the federal government's responsibility as set forth by the Founding Fathers:

1. Maintain the standing army and defend the states against external enemies
2. Conduct foreign relations
3. Mediate interstate disputes

ALL OTHER FUNCTIONS are to be handled by the states themselves. The federal government is completely out of control and unrecognizable, and it's getting worse by the day and by the trillion.

And no, I don't have a tail to chase. And I'm not sure where yours has been so I'm not going to chase that either.
