Big Government! Virtually all of society's problems could be solved, except for the complexities created by our enourmous buracracy. No one is responsible, no one is at fault.

The lies, misrepresentations, and deceptions from our elected representatives are covered by layer upon layer of duplicate and largely uncessary rules and regulations. We have a lawyer for every 300 people in America. Why?
