Then: the party of small government
Now: They want to "redesign" the government 

Tom DeLay interviewed in The Moonie Paper:

[DELAY] I came here to limit government and reduce the size of government. And as important as those two are, what I find the most important is to redesign the government, now that we have the opportunity to do that. On the redesigning government part, it's been my own personal project to redesign government.
(Washington Times via Atrios)

Starting with the ethics committee!

Be afraid. Be very afraid:

[DELAY] We have a whole effort that started two years ago called the 21st Century Careers Initiative, which is an effort to use regulatory reform as redesigning government, and we will even get more aggressive in this part of our agenda this year and next.

Limiting the government in your life, regulatory, social issues and all that and shrinking the size of government or reprioritizing - or as I like to say it, 'redesigning' - government to reflect our [sic] values [sic] are very important.

What do you call $70 million dollars to investigate a blowjob? A good start! [Rimshot. Laughter. Thanks! I'll be here all week!]

Because one of the features of Bug Man's redesigned government will be that there is no right to privacy. No separation of church and state. And no independent judiciary:

[DELAY] The reason the judiciary has been able to impose a separation of church and state that's nowhere in the Constitution is that Congress didn't stop them. The reason we had judicial review is because Congress didn't stop them. The reason we had a right to privacy is because Congress didn't stop them.

And Delay will "redistrict" the judiciary and impeach the judges who haven't been assassinated to complete the Republican coup and final destruction of our Constitution:

How can Congress stop them?

[DELAY] There's all kinds of ways available ... [I]t's a slow, long-term process. I mean, we passed six bills out of the House limiting jurisdiction. We passed an amendment last September breaking up the Ninth Circuit. These are all things that have passed the House of Representatives.

Are you going to pursue impeaching judges?

[DELAY] I'm not going to answer that.

I'll take that as a yes.

Bring it on, you winger piece of shit.
