American politics are corrupt because many of their Inc. donors are just as bad or worse..Welcome to the United States of Corporatocracy<quoted text>
Where did I state that government employees don't pay taxes? My point is, they are not going to vote to downsize themselves out of a job. So you think as a country's population grows, there needs to be more and more government agencies to tell the citizens what is good for them, and force them to do it? We have too much redundancy in government as it is. The government invents more agencies to squeeze more taxes and fees out of the citizens they work for.
At least the last point we can agree on. We may have different reasons for thinking the same thing, but we think the same thing.
