Is education in the United States better or worse than when the Department of Education was formed? No sane person would say the state of education is better now than it was 40 or 80 years ago. The same comparison between past and present regarding sources of energy would produce the same conclusion: under the Department of Energy our fuels for auto, trucks, jets and power plants are more expensive and in shorter supply than ever before. And when you add to the mix the increased cost that the Environmental Protection Agency will add to our energy with its administratively-imposed form of cap and trade taxation, it's obvious that we need to get rid of the big government fools who constitute these organizations and allow the market-place, with its competition and a need to make a profit, to restore us back to sanity and energy affordability.
Any corporation performing more badly and getting worse results than in the past would be put out of business by competitors, or its stock holders would be screaming for the head of its CEO and insisting on reforms and changes. But the government just keeps on concentrating power and control in failing beaucracies and misguided policies and making everything worse, and they never consider that they are the problem and that control and power must be relinquished, and competition introduced, in order to make our problems better again.
Our nation is suffering from too much control and regulation, and unless the Departments of Education, Energy, Commerce, the IRS and the EPA are disbanded there is no possibility that our nation will be able to remain prosperous and free. We must insist of the next congress that severe and deep changes be made to our government. We desperately need less central control of our lives. Abolish the E.P.A. and the Departments of Education and Energy and restore prosperity and liberty to this nation.
