Congress, the people with the constitutional authority and responsibility for spending our tax dollars, does not have the power to cut spending, fire federal employees or control the actions of federal departments. The country is going to hell. The border leaks like a sieve, the debt is insurmountable and the budget is out of control because the bureaucrats are running this country.
Our laws and budgets have for decades been written by the governing structure of the bureaucracy. They send larger and larger budgets to Congress each year in three thousand page stacks of paper that no member of Congress has read for twenty years.
The only change Congress can make to a budget is to add spending. Every time they have tried to cut anything, the permanent ruling class entrenched in our bureaucracy shuts down facilities, starves children, pushes old people off of cliffs and warns that Social Security checks may not go out next month.
Everything the government has tried to fix, education, health care, racial conflict and income inequality has gotten worse or more expensive because their only tool is more spending. Scandals, waste and abuse at dozens of federal agencies including the GSA, IRS and Veterans Administration have resulted in no one getting fired and no reductions in government abuse.
We need a drastic change and most voters know it. That's why Obama is President today. That's why Trump and Sanders are doing so well. But the bureaucracy isn't going to let anyone get elected that might challenge their power without a fight and they feel entitled to 3.5 or 4 trillion taxpayer dollars to help them do it.
I think the National Republican Party and their establishment candidate is beholding to them. I also think that Trump is vulnerable to them. Anyone in business, especially as much business as Trump, has a lot to fear from an out of control federal bureaucracy. That's probably what happened to Perot.
This time though, if they take Trump out, or if Trump self destructs somehow, Ben Carson is right behind him. I went to a Carson event in Fort Smith a while back. I think almost everyone is underestimating him. One thing Trump is right about is that we need someone smart running our country. How about a brain surgeon.
