Just got this in the in-box. Are they right? Do lobbyists have too much power because the government has too much power? And if so, which government? The government of incumbent elected officials? The government of tenured bureaucrats? And don’t get me wrong, people in both groups do wonderful things. But who’s really hog-tying the People’s latent political power? Probably everyone.
A word for our Libertarian friends, for your consideration.
I don’t like the trope that everything can be fixed by shrinking government, nor the promise that all will be well if we simply vote for Libertarians.
