    We need a comprehensive state to federal study on the massive expansion of government personnel and salaries over thr last 25 years. I'd put my money on the conclusion that the public sector has expanded primarily via salary in ways unmatched in history. The primary point of a fiscally unsustainable government is centered around this expansion.

    No longer is government seen as a service driven idea but it is now a highly salaried lot of comfortable beuracrats living high on the public hog.

    We need a 50% reduction in personnel and salaries and a complete replacement of all elected officials over the next 10 years. Otherwise we're done.

    If you don't like the salaries the CEO get, take your business elsewhere. If you own stock, go to the annual meetings and vote against their pay raise......
