Doug Bandow on Cost-of-Government-Day (COGD)

In fact, the total number of government employees rose nearly a half million over last year alone. Counting the military, there are now 4.4 million federal workers. The revolutionaries complained in the Declaration of Independence that King George III “has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.” Yet King George was a piker compared to President Obama.

Today is not so different from 1776. The train of abuses and usurpations is long. The hour is late.

All that is necessary for Big Government to triumph is for the people to do nothing. If Americans still believe the U.S. to be a land of liberty, they must act now, before they find themselves spending all year paying for government.

Here. This election better bring dramatic changes to the way government at all levels operates.
