Pro-Government Yet Disengaged?
On the one hand, President Obama is clearly on the side of more government. On the other hand, he seems to be disengaged from the actual process of government. I had some trouble trying to figure that out until I realized that he's acting as the laissez-faire leader of that colonialist power known as the Federal bureaucracy that has somehow taken over the United States. He doesn't believe in letting citizens do what they want; he believes in letting bureaucrats do what they want.
Question: What if a future President trying to rein in bureaucrats tries a mass firing similar to Reagan vs. PATCO and the bureaucrats refuse to leave? What if they send SWAT teams after their replacements?
