In fact, it's the premise for just about every argument he makes. The fact that this premise is false is the reason none of his arguments make sense.
Governments are supposed to do Constitutional-type things, like provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, etc. Somehow in the modern age that is interpreted by proponents of Super Big Government to mean that government is obligated to provide a cradle-to-grave nanny state. To Rall and those of his ilk, if you download into your underwear the gov is supposed to swoop in and wipe your behind. That assumes - and encourages people to be - lazy, incompetent, petulant screw-ups dependent on someone else to solve their problems for them."
