Stay in Your Lane

The Republican Party’s rallying cry in 2012 is for a smaller role for government and a majority of Americans agree. A Gallup poll released Sept. 17 shows that 54 percent say the government is trying to handle too many things that should be taken care of by individuals and businesses, while 39 percent say the government should do more. Views may slowly be changing, however, as Gallup found that earlier in the summer a record-high 61 percent said government is doing too much.
