Bureaucratic supremacy, the U.S. and the European Union


The United States have a bloated, unelected bureaucracy answerable only to unelected political appointees to whom they must “suck up” should they desire promotion and more power.

There’s always more to say when our freedoms are being forfeited. Were the events at the Bundy Ranch newsworthy? Will whatever happens when the Feds return en masse be newsworthy? Is anything newsworthy that casts overreach by the Obama Government in a … Continue reading
