In order to have limited government you need to have unlimited resources.
Who made that rule up?
I reject your basic premise.
I wrote it. It should be self evident.
The framers of the constitution wrote lived in a world of unlimited resources.
The mythology of the world of limited resources that we know today only started about +-1970 when US oil production peaked, US dam building came to an end, and the apollo program came to an end. Writers like Paul Ehrlich who wrote the Population Bomb —Or The Club of Rome’s Limits of Growth all declared we’d entered a world of limits.
When you have limited resources you need more government to adjudicated over limited resources. That’s the liberal point.
If you want less government you have to drain the swamp of government’s reason for being — you have to kill the need for government oversight of limited and dwindling resources. How? by creating a world of unlimited resources.
The founders were stuck on this ball of rock, like we mostly are. They didn't have 'unlimited resources'. They were stuck with Terran resources.
Some don't count all the resources of the Sol Solar System as 'unlimited resources'
Change the unlimited to a boundry condition like Terran resources, and I might agree.
It's not received as you think it should be.
