Ever notice how the founding fathers, were all about government is a necessary evil, and most felt govt should remain small.

What do we have today? Incompetent over paid, bureaucrats walking over the common people.

And a population that WANTS things to be this way. So how do we convince the left and the right to downscale their precious governments?

Bingo, and for as long as I've looked at solutions for this, I find very little. The real indicator as to how large of a government we have, which truly does make it on par to the size a Communist country would need, is the fear over a 'shutdown'.

The only means I can see is governmental reset, with a focus on promoting a truly Free Market; which is something that's been gone for a long time.

Or, an empirical collapse on par with Rome; accompanied with the burning, looting, killing, and more that accompanies that.

The fact is, we're seeing our govt with all the power, and it's becoming unsustainable.

Yep. I couldn't agree more. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. I'll keep prepping for the worst though...
