Progress of Progressivism

Reader comment on: Jeb Bush Detroit Economic Club Speech

Submitted by Jim Robberts (United States), Feb 5, 2015 10:48

From Andrew Napolitano's Theodore and Woodrow this: "Today, the government has major departments and more than 450 supporting and independent agencies. These same federal agencies regulate every aspect of our lives." Further on he quotes Article I, Section I of the Constitution "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives." He comments, "Congress may not delegate its lawmaking powers to another branch of government."

More than 450! If a ten-year program were instituted at rate 10% reduction per annum those 450 would been whittled to zero, thus restoring American dream of founders. In ten years hence, with one foot in my grave at age 90, it would be gratifying to experience such an outcome. But, it is an impossibility that I'd be so vindcated.

Why impossibile? Only mellenial's grandchildren might understand that their ancestors had been indoctrinated by government schools whom were persuaded thinking government had been their friend ...not an obstacle. That would be true, if future children matriculate from private schooling.

It is imperative that we first separate education from government! Smarter people than me are capable of creating/causing such monumental change. Mythical God is in the details, they'll know how to sort-it-all-out. An amical soliution is possible . . .
