Do we live in a DEMOCRACY, or a REGULATORY DICTATORSHIP?

What it shows is that the COUNTRY IS INCREASINGLY BEING RULED NOT BY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES,

BUT BY UNELECTED and LARGELY UN-ACCOUNTABLE BUREAUCRATS IN WASHINGTON.

Just look at the BALANCE between REGULATIONS and LAWS. 

FOR EVERY BILL PASSED THROUGH CONGRESS and SIGNED by the PRESIDENT LAST YEAR,

… REGULATORS IMPOSED 30 NEW REGULATIONS.

And at $1.885 TRILLION, the COST of REGULATIONS NOW EXCEEDS THE COST OF FEDERAL INDIVIDUAL AND CORPORATE INCOME TAXES, WHICH RAISED ABOUT $1.82 TRILLION LAST YEAR.

The PROBLEM is that THESE COSTS NEVER SHOW UP IN ANY FEDERAL BUDGET as a COST of GOVERNMENT. 

THEY JUST GET HIDDEN 

in HIGHER PRICES, LOWER TAKE HOME PAY, MORE UNEMPLOYMENT, LESS OPPORTUNITY.

A RETURN to FREEDOM, GROWTH and OPPORTUNITY WILL REQUIRE WASHINGTON to REIN in the RUNAWAY REGULATORY STATE
