The Washington, D.C., bully crowd is trying to force excessive programs on the people. The technique is to write unread bills, get them passed using praise and "look what I am doing for you."
Of course, such work is explained to be futuristic and revolutionary. What really happens is "we must hire more researchers, advisers, and writers that we can't yet afford." In the meantime, society productivity is knocked for imperfections and actual domestic product drops (wealth, health and poverty).
These are conveniently ignored nationally and internationally while favoring an incompetent but charismatic leader to push great but impossible ideas. Also, many unethical leaders ignore the social laws for their profit and convenience. Somehow this does not define a high quality democracy where good workers are enabled to choose a successful, quality lifestyle.
This description is in keeping with speeches given by foreign democratic social government activists. Our bullies are so brazen as to ignore the law then try to preach "can't we get along?" We need leaders of quality and with a sense of caring for the people first and not so money greedy.
