    Can you think of any?


    Instances where the government has expanded itself domestically, increased it's social presence and at the same time become more efficient, productive and beneficial to the country? A program or department that isn't incredibly wasteful,slow, problematically bureaucratized, inefficient and in the end, burdensome to taxpayers? I can think of very, very few. Hoping others can help me think of some.

    Do you have any idea of how punctual and efficient the commuter rail sytem in 1930s Italy was?

    "De Machado only grows enough for his family to eat and is prohibited from selling any surplus. But he said entrusting larger private farmers with more land will encourage them to increase production.

    "Seeing the fruits of your own labor gives you pleasure in ways that working for someone else does not," he said.


    Fidel Castro's revolutionaries seized all large farms for the state after toppling dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959, and officials insist the new liberalization isn't a betrayal of revolutionary values."
