The Urtext

I think Pierce nails it here

Here's what I think. In January of 1981, I stood on the lawn of the Capitol and I heard the newly inaugurated President Ronald Reagan tell the country that government was not a solution to the problem, that government was the problem. This basic political heresy, contrary to the first three words of the Constitution that Reagan had just sworn to preserve and protect, is the root philosophy of every bit of conservative politics that came afterwards.
