    You sound like a hick.

    All societies require a government.

    Just as Trump apologists do when confronted with his past history of stiffing contractors.

    The people of this country are idiots. We already have the power to alter the government and yet we have been getting clobbered for decades. And it isn't going to change.

    "The Canadian federal government adopted the measure on a less extensive basis, with swathes of regulatory activity not subject to the limit. The “Red Tape Reduction Act” also did not count “regulatory requirements.” That compromise secured its passage of the by a margin of 245-1 but made the law less robust.

    Still, adoption of the One-for-One rule “has led to considerable savings in financial cost and time allocation for individuals and businesses,” according to Sean Speer at the R Street Institute. By the government’s estimate, between 2012 and June 2014, the One-for-One Rule “reduced the net annual administrative burden on business by over $22 million, resulting in an estimated annual savings of 290,000 hours in time spent dealing with regulatory red tape, and has achieved a net reduction of 19 regulations taken off the books." And more could be done. The Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses believes the current $37 billion businesses must pay to comply with regulations each year could be cut by another $11 billion with no harm to safety, health, or the environment."

    Yes, they are. The political class has relied on the lobster in the slowly heating cooking pot to get their system set up. The problem for the new politicians is the water is beginning to boil, but we still have the means to get ourselves out of the pot. If the 2nd Amendment gets repealed, that ability go's away however.

    The oven is called neo-liberalism, it's been a staple of conservative politics since Reagan. Enjoy the meal you cooked.

    No, it's called progressivism and it has been cooking for at least 90 years.

    True that both parties suck at this governing thing and mostly because they are so easily bought!

    The way I look at it the repubs are taking us towards a dictatorship at 75 mph, while the democrats are taking us there at 100 mph. In the end both Party's (the political class if you will) desire an authoritarian dictatorship.
