I have been saying some of this for ages....
Walk down K Street, the heart of Washington’s lobbying industry, and look at the directory in any office building. They’re full of lobbyists and associations that are in Washington, for one reason: because, as Willie Sutton said about why he robbed banks, “That’s where the money is.”But also i think that it inevitably ends on horrific violence. Socialism and the seizure of property and prosperity by an aristocratic and ultimately unaccountable central authority has rarely ended well.
The wonder is why the taxpayers put up with it.
