Big government on the brink - The Washington Post

The American central government has been having trouble for decades by not actually focusing on the business of governing. There is a disconnect between what government can do and should do since there are limited capabilities in a socialist central planning platform that benefit a nation as a whole. What big government has become, is a leviathan comprised of several things; a feeding trough for those that do not want to do or create on their own, a mechanism for 'brilliant people' that could never convince people otherwise to force changes of their behavior to their favored patterns, a mechanism for some kind of strange new racial/social recalibration that requires the disposal of merit based systems in favor of one that is based on the color of one's skin, a non-economic seizure of property (earnings of individuals) for the dispersement to others based on political power. The list can go on-and-on. But the particle below outlines the problem succinctly.....
“Once politics was about only a few things; today, it is about nearly everything,” writes the eminent political scientist James Q. Wilson in a recent collection of essays (“American Politics, Then and Now”). The concept of “vital national interest” is stretched. We deploy government casually to satisfy any mass desire, correct any perceived social shortcoming or remedy any market deficiency. What has abetted this political sprawl, notes Wilson, is the rising influence of “action intellectuals” — professors, pundits, “experts” — who provide respectable rationales for various political agendas.
The United States has drifted away from a place that promotes and protects individual liberty and has become one that is a morass of publically funded interests that add very little value to nation. Its just a place now that punishes and denigrates producers for mad fighting for that money. Its truly disgusting and Americans should not tolerate it any longer. Take to the streets and take back what is yours. Who is going to stop you?
