It's not the numbers, it's the POWER of the government that matters. The numbers are just a symptom.
Well I agree, I eluded to that as well by saying that a room of super computers are capable of doing far more than thousands of employees.. when you take that and add to the fact that the total number of employees is probably much larger than it was 45 years ago, the fact there are more agencies than there were 45 years ago and the fact that those agencies have more power than they had 45 years ago.. you can safely state that our government now is WAY larger and far more powerful/looming than ever before.. our population numbers mean absolutely nothing when you look at those things.. so the chart is useless..
