How Government becomes the enemy:
They also work to underfund needed government agencies. Then, when things don't work right due to underfunding, they can say: "See? We told you government can't do anything right! We need to privatize this service!"

The Republican strategy is to get people to hate their government. They want you to care less, to be disenfranchised enough to not care what happens. So when they do things like cut unemployment benefits (or underfund Ebola or other medical research), you just sit back and blame it on collective "politicians" instead of where the blame actually belongs: On the Republicans. No, people!! Both parties are NOT the same!
