In reply to comment: Somalia. No government, no (see in situ)

That is a throw away liberal line I have seen before

Somalia has one of the most corrupt governments on Earth:

The Somalian government has horrible human rights abuses:

How about we have a government that follows the rule of law (i.e. the U.S. Constitution)? I want a government that enforces contracts and protects my freedom. It is an ignorant statement to say someone who wants a drastically smaller and law-abiding government would be supporting reversion to a corrupt political system like the one in Somalia.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
