How do you make government smaller? Believe it or not, but the tenth amendment emphasizes on decentralized power over centralized power. Trump talked about returning power back to the citizenry, back to we the people, the local level. Private property rights matter. The tenth amendment is all about returning unused power back from the state and federal levels back down to the local county and city levels. The federal government should focus on protecting the borders and that is about it. They should not be fighting wars in other countries. They should not be trying imprison Americans who try to collect some rain water, etc, etc.
It’s all about returning power back to the local communities, back to individual private property owning Americans.
