Bureaucracy

A system of government in which most of the important decisions are made by state officials rather than by elected representatives – Oxford Dictionaries

We all have horror stories about working with bureaucracies.  It could be government agencies or our medical insurance providers.  The red tape created by bureaucracies increases the cost of everything.

Bureaucratic red tape has stifled our economy for decades.  I am so happy to see President Trump keep his promise of reducing government regulations.  He has eliminated 20 regulations for every one he has initiated.  It is easy to understand why the economy is growing.

I have a problem with bureaucrats enacting regulations that have the force of law and do not have the approval of Congress.   Bureaucratic agencies should not have the power to legislate law.

We have a problem with bureaucratic agencies going beyond their designated power and actually committing crimes for political and/or personal reasons.  We have seen this with the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice, and possible the State Department.

This bureaucratic corruption must be stopped and prevented in the future.  No one is trying to degrade the FBI or DOJ.  Quite the reverse is true.  We need to clean up the corruption at the top to preserve the reputation of these great agencies.  Some people don’t want to clean up this bureaucratic corruption because they are trying to cover their own ass.

When Trump said he was going to clean up the swamp, I had no idea how corrupt it was.  We are just starting to uncover the truth.  Things to consider:

  • Are bureaucrats committing these crimes because of partisan politics?
  • Are bureaucrats committing these crimes for personal gain?
  • Are partisan politicians controlling the corrupt bureaucrats?
  • Are the political elite and deep state controlling both the corrupt bureaucrats and politicians?
  • Are the corrupt bureaucrats actually the deep state and do they control the politicians?
  • Who is controlling the lame-stream media, or are they just going for ratings with no concern for reporting the facts?

These are some interesting things to think about.  I wonder if we will ever know the truth.  Both major political parties may not want the public to know how corrupt the government has become.  People might loose faith in their government.

Unfortunately, even if we do learn the truth, the people at the top of the corruption will probably never face any serious legal consequences.  I heard one political commentator say these corrupt bureaucrats should be ashamed of themselves.  Being shamed is not enough.  I want to see people go to jail.

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

    When I started reading this I thought you went nuts, but I read on thinking maybe you were going to compare this to healthcare insurance. Great comparison. I do my own car maintenance and I take care of my health and avoid visits to the doctor’s office / clinic like I avoid auto mechanics and ticks. I do buy tires and have them mounted and have had a clutch replaced. Other than that timing belts and water pumps on PT Cruisers don’t even stop me… neither does exercise and trying to eat right and maintain a reasonable weight. Great blog post.

    For the USA to get back to a great nation the people will have to turn back to their Christian faith and all that faith encompasses. God will not bless a nation where He is not first in the hearts of the people of that nation. God will not bless an individual where that individual has other “gods”. Trump, like Obama came into power as it says in Romans 13:1 and in other places in God’s Word / Scripture / Bible.And then read on you culturally Christian Democrats, verses 2 – 7 in Romans chapter 13. God’s purpose is to get folks to turn back to, or for the first time to turn to Him and His ways so He can bless them and their nation.

    Yes we need more authentic Christian morality in the USA. The current cultural Christianity found in the USA where a large population claims to be Christian and has bought into the prevailing culture in this country. That has blended a culture which has it’s ” that’s in there” attitude when it comes to scripture they haven’t read again for the first time, into their flavor of morality, faith / view of God’s laws and moral man’s laws. This has weakened the Christian faith to the point where “cultural Christians” accept that which is not true authentic Christianity. They have done this led by some religious denominations who tone down their religion because they do not want to offend those who attend their weekly services. They do not realize that getting back to authentic Christian faith and morality would be good for their flock and the nation. Finally many members of church flocks do not have the guts to bring there faith into their and other’s lives outside their religious organization’s building. They snuff out their light when it comes to taking an active part in remolding their culture back to authentic Christianity.

    State government here in Wisconsin is run by lifelong bureaucrats that write the administrative rules after the legislature passes hollow laws that directs the regulations to be written by all the many State agencies. Trouble with that is that too many of these agencies , DNR, DSPS, DOR, DOA, ETC are “guided” by appointed boards / committees that are loaded with folks with specific self or industry interests and the rules they write on behalf of the legislation are quite biased. Even though they hold public meetings to review the rules, that is nothing more than a dog and pony show. The special interests get their ways because they have the ear of the bureaucrats. And the bureaucrats do not have the integrity (balls) to do the right thing because it is more like work. Take the building Codes, Wisconsin is still stuck on the 2011 NEC and a law passed in 2007 concerning electrical inspections has not had rules passed and approved yet because the bureaucrats are too unmotivated by industry to do their own work and move “forward” . A word found on the Wisconsin flag. Bureaucrats slow down government and when things do not go their “buddies’ “way they find ways to shift rules to satisfy their buddies / lobbyists. Sometimes moving things backwards. And who know whose palms are being grea$ed.
