I am half way through reading Benjamin Franklin's autobiography. I'm also reading the Federalist Papers.

Today, on the road running a quick errand, it struck me when looking at the state DOT number, federal DOT numbers, tags, inspection stickers, etc on every truck; what a different country we live in. Everything you do has to be approved by some government official it seems.

Like a frog in water slowly heated to a boil, we have become accustomed to every aspect of our life being regulated. Sad.

You can't even buy a remote cabin in the mountains and live off the land in freedom. You would owe property taxes, which means you have to earn some kind of income, which means you have to file income taxes, etc...

There is no escaping the bureaucratic slave-master. True liberty is no more.

tell me about it. Because my work is so slow, I've been thinking of branching into a handyman operation as a side bar. I've done some decent sized jobs that border on remodeling and got to thinking "hmmm, maybe I oughta get a Handyman's license in order to be 100% legal begal. Well, come to find out, I have to get a county license and a city license and this does not cover painting. That's another license unto itself. Ridiculous that an older couple can't contact me to change some locks, fix a sticky door, replace a disposal and paint a room or two and that I would have to get 4 seperate licenses in order to do menial tasks.
So...screw it, I'm going to stay status quo. Government in all forms has just gotten out of control over the last 10 years or so.
In my business (custom home design - 25 years), I have to have a Florida Structural PE review and sign and seal my drawings for permitting. For the last 10 years, the Architects have been trying to legislate me out of existence, though the vast majority of Architects do the same thing and take their plans to an Engineer for signing and sealing because they're not educated in structural engineering either.
Soon I fear, I will be "legislated" out of my chosen field.

I run my own business and it is hard work,i finish paying for my works premises after a long slog.Just across the road from me a huge supermarket has been built and opened,a multinational very profitable chain of stores.I recently found out that the store and "eco"friendly power system was paid for by a development agency(in other words Tax payer money)they get the building free with an option to be relocated if not successfull amongst other benefits in exchange for some employment for folks just above minimum wage.Two locally owned well established smaller stores have seen their trade drop by 35 and 50% respectivly.If everyone had this leg up maybe i would have happy shareholders as well.A win win situation that has no doubt happened near you(Hey,where did all the small shops go?)

Team- unbiased opinion.K.I.S.S principle upheld here

yep. The government is NOT anti-business, they are anti-SMALL business.
Big difference. Big business will come swim in the s%$t pool we call politics and bring their money. Small business is too busy and too broke to get involved because they're trying to just keep afloat.

It want be long before you have to get permission to have sex, with whom, how, much, and how often. I'm not kidding either. they will find a way! Just you wait. People don't understand what is happening, it's taking place at a rate that most people just calls it a conspiracy. They are blind, they have no foresight, and they do not look backwards or forwards. They live only in the moment. And they will be trapped in it.

Look at Florida ready to jab people with a needle just for maybe suspected of drunk driving. Everything is changing so fast and big brother is moving fast and furious.
And that's the biggest joke of all. Because in Florida, if you refuse a breathalyzer test, your license is automatically suspended for DUI, your fines are doubled and so is your length of license suspension.
So what is the purpose of jabbing you with a needle????
Yep, to get you to give up one more right.

Speaking of government control, the mining industry (coal)is currently taking a severe beating from the Fed. They are using the EPA,SEC,MSHA and anything else under federal authority to slow down or stop mining in the U.S. I see this first hand every day. They are using safety as their reason for doing this. Saying that mining is too "dangerous", but I know there is a political agenda behind it. I'm all for the renewable energy technology this administration keeps pushing, but it doesn't make sense to drive up the unemployment rate any more. The economy is weak enough already. We still need reliable power for when the wind isn't blowing.

Its increasingly obvious these loons that are in charge of America's federal government right now, from the top down, have an agenda for America.

And, it ain't pretty.
