Access to the Internet has happened pretty much without the "help" of the federal government. Connection speeds keep going up while costs keep coming down.

Since 1965, the United States has spent approximately $17 trillion on anti-poverty programs – an amount almost identical to the balance on the national debt. Yet poverty rates remain essentially unchanged.

No one on Earth today is threatened by radical Anglicans, Methodists, Presbyterians or Catholics. But as we have seen in just the past few days, we all have reason to fear radical Islamists.
