I could go on and on. Anyone with even begins to study economics is aware of the problem of scarcity. The Government is becoming so large as to consume a greater and greater portion of scarce resources with threat of force choking of the private sector, which it these Federal fiefs impose regulation costing our private sector $2 trillion in addition to taxes enforced by an army of over 100,000 agents of the IRS costing Americans 6.1 billion hours to comply with which a legion of accounts, tax specialists and others are required. This is a massive diversion of resources, labor, and time showing endless distortions of our economy.
