    Yep, too many bureaucrats got control. We have a similar problem today: not enough taxes to pay for all the folk who collect them for the welfare state. We still suffer from a chronic case of greed--a worldwide pandemic.

    It is still the fault of the body politic: we put them in there and allowed their incumbencies.

    It is long past time to clean house, and senate.

    This is no small task with all the special interests controlling the polls.

    We still have a worse than poor turnout on important issues.

    We seem to be in a new era of apathy, indifference and complacency.

    Freedom is not free.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    If there is not a drastic change in the dictatorship by the politicians in DC and the Federal Bureaucracy I believe we will see states seceding within the next 20 years, perhaps sooner. The citizen is being ripped off to pay Federal workers an average of twice what civilian workers make!
