Conservatives could have had anything they wanted between 2001-2006, the years the GOP controlled both houses of Congress and the White House. They could have ended abortion, they could have closed any border they wanted, they could have had ANYTHING (including all the wars any neocon could hope for.) So don't tell me small government is impossible...they just didn't want it as much as they wanted to talk about it.
As far as the state welfare programs, there's a simple solution: move to a red state where there are mostly white people (states like that DO exist.) Your problem will be solved.
