Federal Government: Too Big and Still Fails

I often tell my children that there are no longer 3 branches of government. In fact there are 4 branches of government. We have the classic Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. However, as Mark Levin so eloquently lays out in the chapter titled On Federalism, in Liberty and Tyranny, almost anybody can conclude that there is way too much government:

“The Statist has also constructed a Fourth Branch of government- an enormous administrative state- which exists to oversee and implement his policies. It is a massive yet amorphous bureaucracy that consists of a workforce of   nearly 2 million civilian employees (U.S. Dept. of Labor). It administers a budget of over $3 trillion a year. It churns out a mind-numbering number of rules that regulate energy, the environment, business, labor, employment, transportation, housing, agriculture, food, drugs, education, etc. Even the slightest human activity apparently requires its intervention: clothing labels on women’s dresses, cosmetics ingredients, and head flow rates and allowable gallons per flush for toilets. It sets flammability standards for beds. There are nearly one thousand federal departments, agencies and divisions that make laws and enforce them.

The official compilation of rules issued by the federal government, the Federal Register, contained 74,937 pages of regulations in 2006. Tolstoy’s War and Peace, only 1,400 pages in length, seems as light and airy as a romance novel by comparison. The rules in the Federal Register are written in a dense and confusing style, often confounding the lawyers, accountatns, businessmen, and others required to digest them. The estimated cost of simply complying with these regulations was $1.14 trillion. The National Taxpayers Union estimated that in 2006, U.S. businesses and individuals spent 6.65 billion hours struggling to comply with the complexities of the tax code, at a cost of $156.5 billion in lost productivity for businesses alone.”

The modern liberal media often contrives the anti-government movement as a group of Timothy McVeigh wannabe anarchists who want to abolish all government. They challenge every political figure who subscribes to this notion by asking them to specifically name a government program they would eliminate, in hopes that they will name something that would take away from some victim group  and be labeled as having no compassion, or as some type of bigot.

These politicians are fully aware of this strategy, and each time squirm, sidestep, and outright refuse to answer the question in fear of being reduced to a 10 second soundbite endorsing pollution or killing wildlife or even racism in future campaigns.

My advice to these politicians is this: GROW SOME BALLS!

If you take a look below at the list I compiled of federal agencies, it is not hard to pick off more than  a few that are not only unnecessary, but also counterproductive to the liberty and freedoms the Constitution was specifically created to preserve. For example, there are almost 5 dozen Federal agencies that control, mandate, or implement policy related to energy and the environment with over 100,000 civilians on government payrolls enforcing rules under the authority of the executive branch of government (ie- the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Energy Information Administration, the Office of Environmental Management, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, etc. etc.).

Another example is the Food and Drug Administration, under the Department of Health and Human Services. First off, there are DOZENS of agencies in the Department of Agriculture alone that regulate and monitor food and nutrition ingredients and guidelines. There are nearly a hundred agencies within the federal government that regulate, monitor and enforce drug policies and standards outside of the Department of Health and Human Services. By the time something reaches our mouths for consumption, it has been inspected and regulated by dozens of bureaucrats. Yet we still face recalls of foods and drugs that are potentially hazards to our health? How is that even possible?

There are hundreds of agencies that blend into each-other and/or micromanage each other. Every step we take is virtually planned and monitored by some government bureaucrat somewhere. We each become a piece of data to be divided and crunched to come out with some type of FURTHER regulation that we are forced to comply with.

About h1jen1

I'm just not in the mood for any more of the crap that is going on in this country. I don't care who is sick of me sounding off about everything taking place right in front of our eyes.. I don't care who is annoyed by all this.. I used to.. But I don't any more. Because if I can get through to, and open the eyes of just one person here, and one person there, I done at least SOMETHING. Our elected officials have played all of us for so long. They take advantage of our obsession of instant gratification. I'm not in the mood for any of that b/s any more...

3 responses to “Federal Government: Too Big and Still Fails”

  1. sailorray says :

    Liberals just don’t get it, the bigger the govt the more of a drain on our economy. But they think they actually make the economy work better. Liberals are so clueless. I hope you copied and pasted that list, it would have taken forever to type.

  2. h1jen1 says :

    They have so much faith in government.. Government is so inefficient, and wasteful.. And even fraudulent.. Not just in so many ways.. IN ALL WAYS…
