…unelected, unaccountable, and increasingly uncontrollable
Over the past century the control of government through rule of law passed from Congress to the President. Under our constitutional republican system, all laws were to emanate from our democratically elected public officials as a guarantee that the people would control the controllers.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt permanently turned that process on it’s head when he bypassed Congressional oversight and began to rule by administrative fiat through Cabinet level agencies, using national emergency as a pretext.
New laws that were not drafted by Congress, but had the effect of law were created by administrative agencies on an increasing frequency. Today 95+% of all new laws are created by these un-elected bureaucrats appointed by the President. Congress has abdicated their role as the true representatives of the people, and now function as little more than political shills to the special interests and lobbyists that now control Washington, D.C. An entire new political class of un-elected administrators run our government and have sequentially taken us from a constitutional republic, to a constitutional democracy, to a socialistic democracy, and very nearly to a Marxist democracy in a span of just over 100 years. Our government has morphed from a servant of the people to the master of the people, and now controls every facet of our daily lives from cradle to grave.
Join us for an examination of this process with our guest, Constitutional Attorney Harriet Hageman, for an hour long discussion of how bureaucratic regulation is destroying the American dream, and what we must do if we are to restore individual liberty to average Americans.
