    American views on the federal government have ranged from wanting little if any government to wanting the government to take care of all of society's problems.

    On the small government side, we have business leaders who opposed Theodore Roosevelt's conservation program and his setting aside some lands for national parks. Continuing that was Ronald Reagan's "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." Also consider the Southern states opposition to the Civil Rights movement. We heard a lot then about states' rights as opposed to federal rights.

    Those in favor of a bigger role for government include most Democrats, especially Franklin Roosevelt, who initiated programs that helped poor and middle class citizens.
