More Machinery Of Government Than Is Necessary
May 26, 2011 by Bob Livingston
The United States government has grown into a tyrannical, fascist leviathan that is consuming everything in its sphere.
There are departments for everything under the sun, and those departments are staffed by unelected bureaucrats who are answerable to no one or nothing. Many are feckless and rude, as John Dollarhite found in his interactions with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The various departments — like Energy, Education, the Environmental Protection Agency, Transportation, Homeland Security, Internal Revenue Service, et al — are unConstitutional and make their own rules and regulations outside of Congress. And when they decide to use those rules to crack down on Americans, they do so with the bedside manner of a viper.
“I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious,” Thomas Jefferson wrote.
What was true then is undeniable now.
Sadly, no one in government or actively hawking for your vote come the next Presidential primary believes this is true, save one: Ron Paul.
While the media plays up Mitt Romney as the leading GOP Presidential contender and plugs for Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and John Huntsman, realize that none of them will rein in Government. And that’s why the corporate media play them up.
Electing a President who truly believes in the Constitution is crucial if America is to survive. The choice is clear, and Jefferson has said so: Ron Paul must be our next President.
