The Privilege-ization of Washington DC & The Federal Government

About: about: is a new political system emerging in this country? | billmoyers.com

  • the privilege to write laws & exclude oneself from obeying them
  • the privilege to write regulations & laws & vote them in without disclosing their content to the public
  • the privilege to write laws & ignore the words later on by popular concensus
  • the privilege to redistribute the balance of the US population via the World population by ignoring & failing to enforce immigration laws
  • the privilege to punish via taxation those who disagree with Washington DC & state policy
  • the privilege to subjugate the several state governments via money transferred to them from federal taxes (education & energy etc.)
  • the privilege to unionize public employees so that the state & federal wages exceed private sector but taxpayer management can't negotiate creating an open blank check on public wages
  • the privilege to conduct treaty-like negotiations in secret & implement them even if voters object
  • the privilege of job security via crony capitalism by slanting laws & regulations in favor of donors who contribute to their campaigns
  • the power to do business out of the reach of the public by hiding behind the slow drip of FOA & punishing whistleblowers & keeping information out of the reach ot inspectors general.
  • The most awful privilege is the power to lie to the public & get the M$M to go along with it

The above is a short list of the changes in government in the last 8-12 years. While politics has most often been a dirty busiiness it is now moving in the direction of destroying the very system & principles that it was built upon in the first place.

It doesn't mention the US - 97 TRILLION$$ in unfunded liabilities (dbt. clock) (like SS etc.)
