I don’t believe the size of the executive branch in any way should be correlated to the size of our population. It’s more about the extent of its influence and control over society. In this sense it has grown way to large and pervasive. Over the years the states have lost more and more of their individual power. There is far too much federal regulation and too much dependence on federal regulation by the states.
