Bureaucracy begets bureaucracy! This succinct statement has stayed with me since my college days on an Ivy League campus. The truth of this statement is easy to see in the USA as more and more of our lives are regulated by federal, state and local laws. Many of those elected to office believe they know what is best for us and thus push laws that espouse their belief system. Government knows best is the fundamental transformation that our current Ivy League president speaks of, is espoused on Ivy league campuses, and that is modeled in Europe. The founders of our nation were well aware of the problems of big government and through our Constitution and Bill of Rights put simple basic rules in place to restrict the potential overreach of our federal government. Our freedoms are increasingly in jeopardy as a direct result of government growth.
