In my view, the “Number of Laws” chart above says it all! this is indicative of this (and probably every) GOVERNment. This applies to everything of GOVERNment, which uses Laws not only about our Health-Care, but about anything and everything. We the People are so overwhelmed by that vastness of “The Law” as to find it impossible to wholly understand or even to know about!
We worship “The Rule of Law” no matter what those “Laws” might be. We are allowed to “vote” for whomsoever the Dem-Rep Monopoly might choose as our Rulers, who seems to feel their “duty” is to Regulate by “making Laws”. There is little or no concern for whatever the Constitution might permit, and even less consideration for the moral premise included in “thou shalt not steal”, for our Rulers have the powers of taxation; IOW They are allowed to steal.
There is this strange sense of pride in being a “citizen” irrespective of that We as Citizens are merely Subjects of the Rulers and the “System”. We have no Role in the Balance of Powers, yet are subject to Their “Justice System” as it’s whims determine “for Us”.
Is this a good way to run our Railroad?
