Re-Redesigning The System – Part 1 of 4

[Note from Bob: This essay by Adobe Walls is rather long and he has suggested we split it into four parts.  Each morning at this time, another part will be posted.]

Re-Redesigning The System


Why we must shermanize the system to save it.

Most would call for reform these days but we are way past that as a viable solution. Reform might however, be a good slogan for the hard-asses we’d need to put in office to make this happen.

The system needs to be re-redesigned not because it’s broken but because it was redesigned a century ago. This wasn’t accomplished in a single stroke but was, pretty much complete at least three decades ago. The problem for the left is the redesigned system doesn’t in and of itself guarantee them the power they crave. In theory (but not in actuality) and in the right hands the new system could still protect our rights and liberties.

To maintain and enhance their power the left needs to maintain control over our lives. It simply wouldn’t do to lose that control every time the left lost a significant election, such as losing the White house. For instance the public would soon learn that we don’t have to put up with their abuse if they were periodically prevented from abusing our liberties due to losing an election. If the option of choosing between relatively benign or malevolent government was offered every couple of years neither of the current parties would continue to exist. What the left needed was a way to keep their gains, a vessel to preserve its innate malignancy during the times when they don’t hold the White House and or congress. Hence the need for the fourth and most powerful branch of government the extra-constitutional regulatory agencies.

Virtually every federal department, agency and commission in this country with the possible exceptions of the defense and state departments control our lives through regulation. Even those departments not created as such have taken on regulatory powers not within their original scope. For example the Justice Department is getting into the school regulating business under the guise of civil rights by using “disparate impact” to “judge” and regulate school disciplinary policies. Wasn’t it bad enough that the Department of Education mandates local school policies? Another example is the Treasury Department is tasked with regulating not just banks but every type of large financial business such as insurance.

In February 2014 the Department of HHS instructed (!) the Treasury Department to have the IRS require businesses to “certify” that they are not shedding full-time workers simply to avoid the employer mandate. Officials said employers will be told to sign a “self-attestation” on their tax forms affirming this, under penalty of perjury. Such rampant lawlessness is routine now. From how much water can come out of our showerheads to healthcare every aspect of daily life answers to the fourth branch of government. This system has become so pervasive and so routine we are often unaware of it.

The fourth branch of government i.e. the regulatory departments and agencies are thoroughly infested with leftists at all levels below political appointees. So when a Republican, even a conservative Republican, is in the White House new regulations are implemented and existing ones are enforced. Even when Republicans control the WH and both houses of congress little if any attention is paid to the fourth branch’s activities unless a lobbyist complains about it. Indeed far more regulations, new agencies and departments were created under Republican G. W. Bush than under his predecessor Bill Clinton. When the bush administration attempted to undo Clinton/Podesta’s federal wilderness land grab completed in the last days of Clinton’s administration, he was prevented by the courts because rules forbidding resource development had been implemented under the fourth branch’s self-made rules. In other words the regulatory agency makes the rules under which it makes the rules and once those rules are made they can’t be unmade because the rule makers say so and the court chimes in saying that’s the rule (because the court rules?)!

The left’s various agendas achieve permanence, indeed immortality in the Fourth Branch of government. The branch not even mentioned let alone given enumerated powers in our constitution. This is where the Re-redesign must start; this run amok leviathan is crushing our economy and is the single most effective instrument used to eliminate our liberties. Many use terms such reform or restrain to describe the solutions for curbing this regulatory nightmare. Not enough, not near enough by a tenth. I along with many others often advocate simply abolishing the (most) offending federal departments and agencies. Not enough, not near enough by half. The agencies and departments along with many who work in/for them must first be destroyed before they are eliminated. In short they must be shermanized, what Sherman did to Georgia and SC must be done to the fourth branch.

    I look forward to the balance of the essay, and should probably wait to comment, but here goes . . .

    You’re right, of course. There must be a housecleaning several orders of magnitude greater than what a mere election can provide. The problem is, the complexity of the system is such that a reboot would be almost impossible. The Progressive tentacles are so wrapped around our lives that cutting them all is daunting task. I fear it will take the same amount of time to get rid of them as it took to institute them. Part of the Progressive plan, I think.

      The idea is to hollow them out before cutting “the tentacles”.
