While our cities are being taken over by drug lords and gang members, Springfield and Washington, D.C. turns their heads and look for easier prey.
Ever since our country was founded, a hard-working, honest American born man or woman was considered to be an asset to the country. They were the ones that were fighting wars for our country and freedom, working in factories, running businesses, farming, creating new technology, providing jobs and kept our local economy thriving.
Things have changed, I am so sorry to say. Every year now you can pick up the newspapers in December and start reading about the 250 to 300 new laws passed in Illinois by Rules and Regulation Party of Illinois. Most of these laws are passed with little or no regard to property rights or personal and religious freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.
When I think about it, in a decade at this rate is 2,500 to 3,000 new laws. In all my years that is more laws than I care to remember. And this does not even include county, municipal or Washington, D.C. laws. I have noticed in the last few years that cop cars are proud to have written on the side, “law enforcement.”
As we all know it takes money to enforce the new laws and we have set up different agencies and have to build new million dollars buildings for them to operate out of. These jobs are what I call non-productive citizens.
They will tell you how to raise your children, run your farm, operate your business, etc. These jobs do nothing to help the gross national product of our country. These jobs also come with a healthy pension plan. In Illinois, we are learning what it costs. This is not a problem for the taxpayers who will cover it.
