Out of control
Is our government out of control?
Unelected bureaucrats are seizing control of our energy industry, killing jobs and hamstringing our economy.
No sector appears safe.
CFACT’s Paul Driessen lays out the staggering facts at CFACT.org:
“No one even knows how many Executive Branch agencies there are – estimates range from 60 to 438 – much less how many new rules they implement and impose each year. Officially, [CEI’s Clyde Wayne] Crews says, they issued a staggering 3,554 new rules in 2014, while President Obama signed ‘only’ 226 new laws enacted by Congress. Worse, of the 53,838 (!) formal final regulations included in the Federal Register from 2001 through 2014, only 160 (0.3%) received a ‘cost-benefit’ analysis; we have no idea how the rest affect us.”
Ironically, President Obama is attempting to invoke the rule of law as requiring a vote on his nominee to the Supreme Court. Yet the Constitution requires no such thing.
“The Constitution is not a living organism,” Justice Scalia reminded us, “It’s a legal document, and it says what it says and doesn’t say what it doesn’t say.”
Take a look at the full report Paul Driessen has compiled at CFACT.org.
He makes a frightening case. We need to reduce the size of all this government and get it back under control.

Washington is out of control. Legislators, judges and unelected bureaucrats want to control our lives, livelihoods and living standards, with no accountability even for major errors, calculated deception, or deliberate, often illegal assaults on our liberties and on citizens who resist the advancing Leviathan.
These themes animate Republican and conservative politics because they are happening – regularly. [more..]
Years back, Fmr jurist Sandra Day O’Connor said that about 85% of SCOTUS cases deal with federal regulations, despite all the public attention certain cases receive.
