68 new federal regulations each day

The Obama administration has posted 6,125 regulations and notices over the past 9 days – an average of 68 a day!

Ya got enough government yet? Apparently, half the voters didn't think so last week -- just they haven't for decades.

Sixty-eight new regulations per day is prima facie evidence of an out-of-control federal government regardless of whether the Administration is headed by a Republican or a Democrat. It is so out-of-control that even Obama admitted that "you can't change Washington from the inside."

Only the voters -- people on the outside of Washington -- can fix Washington. We failed to do that last week, just like we fail every two years. We keep electing and reelecting congressmen and presidents who don't have the will or integrity to do what needs to be done.

That said, here are some Party-related statistics:

Two-thirds of Democrats think the government should do more while 82 percent of Republicans and 62 percent of independents say it's doing too much.

That attitude toward having government fix everything little thing tends to influence how a person votes.

More Party-related statistics:

Why can't Obama "change Washington from the inside?" Bureaucrats. No matter how we vote, the bureaucrats remain. (Our form of government isn't a democracy, republic, autocracy, plutocracy, theocracy, or monarchy. It's an aristocratic bureaucracy.) What does that have to do with Party-related statistics? A significantly higher portion of federal, state, and local bureaucrats are Democrats than are Republicans. As shown above, Democrats are much more likely than Republicans to want government to do more (ie make 68 new federal regulations each day). There is no better way to get that done than to be a Democrat bureaucrat -- a force not even Obama can -- or wants to -- "change...from the inside."

This isn't just a problem of out-of-control kleptocratic bureaucracy. (Most bureaucrats don't see themselves as bureaucrats but as government employees or public servants. Admit it. Those are merely different names for the same thing.)

● It is a problem of a Congress that consistently refuses to read the bills it passes.
● It is a problem of a Congress that produces such complex legislation that it cannot be comprehended or managed.
● It is the problem of a Congress that consistently delegates to the Executive Branch the authority to write the laws -- even though Article 1, Section 1 of the US Constitution clearly says, "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States"! Congress keeps shrugging the power and responsibility off to bureaucrats in the Executive Branch!

The solution is really quite simple, but painful: follow the Constitution! Conduct an audit of every federal agency, law, rule, policy, and judicial decision and purge everything that is not in full compliance with the Supreme Law of the Land -- the Constitution.

This is why I say, we need smarter voters.
