There is a point of Peak Government, represented by spending as a percentage of GDP, past which no government can exist for a prolonged period of time.

In his '64 Goldwater speech, Reagan said it was a third.

The ideal is probably less than 2%

In the states since 1990, GDP has risen by 75% while federal spending has risen by 300% and entitlements specifically by 500%.

This all has to collapse at some point. It cannot continue indefinitely.

It can't even hold where it currently is. It must decrease.

I agree. The federal government is beyond that point, as evidenced by its ever-increasing debt.
