A Challenge to the Wishful Thinkers

My mission in life is to keep pointing out that bigger, more intrusive government is counter productive. Those who think big government will improve our lives are wishful thinkers. For example, here is my very first blog. Or, here is the first research work I did for RGF.
Now empirical evidence of the counter productive effects of big government (North America or worldwide) is available at your fingertips. Thus my challenge to the wishful thinkers: tell me again how you are going to make things better when you have not done so throughout history????? How is it that you think government bureaucrats and politicians can make decisions about people’s lives better than the people themselves???? I really want to know.
