Gary Johnson writing clearly

If you get the deadtree of American Spectator, the one that just hit your mailbox has a good Freedom Watch column by Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and Ilya Somin's kinda-preferred libertarian candidate for GOP nomination for President of the US.

Not available today, but go buy the deadtree if you must not wait: Government Spends Too Much Because It Does Too Much.

"you cannot limit government spending with an unlimited government."

"Truly controlling spending demands much more than juggling numbers on spreadsheets: it demands a long overdue return to the proper role of government."
