People will trust that which is simple and that which is understandable. I had to re-enroll in a health care plan today. The process was cumbersome, absurd, and consequently meaningless. The enroller told me after she had read something that neither of us understood, I was now to say I understand and agree.
We sign forms all the time that we do not read and nobody, including the people who wrote the statements, understands.
We see and hear those in government lie, cheat, and mislead. This would be regulators, elected officials, and consultants to government. John Gruber told us how government works and how these people regard the American public.
Now we find that we will have more and more regulations . The Obama regime is cramming like a college student trying to study for a final exam, publishing more than 1,200 new regulations in the last 15 days alone, according to data from Regulations.gov.
Energy and environment rules are the biggest category, with 139 published by the federal government in the last 15 days, according to Regulations.gov.
The Obama regime finalized a new ozone standard that could become the costliest rule ever proposed by the EPA. The EPA released the rule while millions of Americans were getting ready to eat some turkey and pie for Thanksgiving.
Regulations listed on Regulations.gov include “Notices from the Federal Register; Proposed Rules; Final Rules.” The government website shows that 309 rules were proposed or finalized in the last 15 days and 892 notices from the federal register were received — some of which could lead to new rulemakings.
An attorney stated a few months ago that every American commits at least three felonies every day. At any point in time the government can bring charges against any and every American and then force the American to prove they are innocent. This is not what was intended when our free society and constitution were established. This is how a totalitarian state operates. This is why only 13% of Americans trust the government. Frankly, it is surprising the number is that high.
This totalitarian state is a result of the Marxist/Progressive party (the current Democrats) and the Big Government Establishment (the GOP establishment headed by the likes of Boehner and McCarthy). It is only Freedom Loving Americans who belief in the principles put forth by the founding fathers that can and will restore a free and democratic society; that is a government that can be trusted by 100% of Americans.
