One Nation Under Too Many Laws…
In this bulletin you’ve read countless examples of how unelected bureaucrats beat down small businesses and the little guy…Kids getting huge fines for selling Girl Scout cookies, hot dogs or lemonade in front of their home. Growing a garden or raising chickens at home, harvesting your own rainwater (the government thinks they own the rainwater).
Recently, a good friend got arrested and after posting bond, was told not to leave the state. What was his offense? Replacing a water valve on a home shower stall - without a permit! A misdemeanor. My friend is a master contractor, with a current state license, however, in Oakland County, MI that license isn’t recognized.
Ironically, our friend didn’t install the device, a sub-contractor did it without authorization. So the court will waste a lot of tax dollars and time over a petty misdemeanor and possibly waste even more tax resources incarcerating him as the two “offenses” he was charged with each carry a maximum three month sentence plus fines.
Ask any small business owner or would be owner…’what’s the top challenge to starting or expanding a business in the US?” The answer is simple - government red tape and costs. Then our pinhead elected representatives wonder why there is so little job creation.
Our politicians, our legislators, our bureaucrats, they are always right, and they're all about our well-being, our future. We owe them.
After all, where would we be without our government?
For every bureaucrat, we destroy 3.5 productive jobs or businesses. Keep in mind, most (not all) government workers produce NOTHING! We have far too many federal agencies which have outlived their usefulness; the value for what they do is actually counterproductive to our country and is a threat to our economic security.
American has more unelected officials and agencies creating ‘laws’, rules and regulation without benefit of legislation than any other nation on the planet…virtually no one can keep up with the amount of new red tape being created annually and it is destroying our country and that’s the reason why I fear our government more than terrorists.
Over regulation is what’s killing our country.
