Big Brother is TOO BIG!

In a recent post I mentioned the vast array of “Alphabet Agencies” our Federal Government runs. Here’s a visual for you, check out this list: wiki list
The US government employs over 4 million people. Source
The existence of this huge bureaucracy, believe it or not, is not to keep us “free”. And it costs A LOT of money we don’t have. US debt clock.

 

And again, the same scenario goes on at the state and local level. Put aside the fact that it is morally reprehensible to steal (billions upon billions of dollars a year) by force from a populous and use it to fund the “social welfare program” for the entire globe, and its police force. This criminal system is not working, it can not be sustained indefinitely. There will be a day of reckoning. It will not be pretty.

RESPECT FOR THE LAW?

In order to have a generally lawful and orderly society, a majority of the citizens of such society must have a certain degree of respect for the laws that govern it. It’s pretty easy to see we have started losing that respect over the last few decades. Let’s take a stab at why this is.

First, in order for most people to have any respect for the law, they must perceive it as generally fair. If the politicians who make it, and the officers who enforce it, are not held accountable and go unpunished for flagrant violations, of course the majority see it is not fair. Such cases are daily reminders that the law is different for the wealthy and powerful, and everybody else.

Next, in order for the system to be fair, it must be fairly easy to understand. If the state is to have no mercy upon the people, and take the stand that “ignorance of the law is no excuse” then how can it be fair to have uncountable thousands upon thousands of laws? Do a little online research. As far as I can tell, no one will even TRY to count the number of US Federal laws. This is unacceptable by any reasonable person who believes in a free and fair society.
If it takes around 7 YEARS of college education to get a license to practice law in this country (and even then you specialize in just a small portion of “law”), how can the government expect all of us simple folk to even know what all the laws are? Much less be able to live in accordance with them all? Don’t worry, the man will surely let you know if they decide you’ve broken it.

We elect and pay over 500 people to go to DC and legislate. And legislate they do. Besides all of the laws our actual legislators vote into being, the beast of a government we have has begun allowing all of it’s separate departments to produce regulations, and enforce those regulations with the power of law. Thousands and thousands of “laws” that were never voted on by your representatives, just written into being by the IRS, Department of Energy, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Labor, Department of Transportation, on and on it goes.

None of the above even begins to get into the same exact scenario going on at the state and local levels. Two hundred years of this and the situation is now nearly unbearable.

We MUST reign in our overlords. We must DEMAND a smaller government that actually restrains itself to only exercising  the powers granted to it by our Constitution.

Freedom’s last stand.

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.” 
Ronald Reagan

 

If I hear one more person say some crap like “socialism is working great in (name country here) why not here?” I’m going to pull my hair out. Sure it WAS working OK in Sweden. Only because they were selling lots of oil. Now oil is way down. They’ve let millions of refugees in they have to feed, and are going into debt.

SWEDEN DEBT CLOCK

What could go wrong? Give it some time. Those European countries will go one after the other into the same hellhole following Cuba and Russia and every other socialist utopia we’ve seen. The ideology is bankrupt. Never worked, never will. Russia has one of the largest and most fertile land masses on earth. At the same time their people stood in lines to fight over a few loaves of bread, mountains upon mountains of corn and grains stood rotting in the USA because we could make so much of it, it was worthless. We started paying farmers not to grow stuff.

Under communism there is no incentive to produce anything. Why should I break my back to grow more corn? Why should I work hard on the factory line to produce more than the other guy? Guess what? They don’t! It’s human nature.

Why do we have to ruin our country? Why can’t our enlightened commies just go to whatever utopia they envy so much and let us TRY to get this place back to a free country while there might still be a chance?

 

 

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
Winston Churchill
