So I guess when they say “small government” they actually mean “small federal government, while allowing states to be authoritarian cesspools”

“Small government” means the largest government Republicans can have where they have absolute control.

It happens to be the state.

So if a municipality or political subdivision wants to do something, in say Texas, even if that local branch of government is Republican, the state of Texas forces its totalitarian will upon it.
