...”we’ve built a bureaucracy at federal, state, county, and municipal levels that would be the envy of any Soviet apparatchik. Our apparatchiks receive salaries 45% higher than those earned by the private-sector serfs who pay them”...

I have heard that most departments in our government bureaucracies are very chaotic, making little sense to those who are called upon to function there. Most, I am sure, stay quiet because of the high salary, perks and benefits. This system needs to been cleaned out and restored from the ground up, beginning with the IRS.

That is absolutely true- each department has become a fiefdom unto itself. Most employees do not have an understanding of how they fit into the system, since it is so disjointed and inefficient. What is worse is there is a growing class of people in this country who are becoming more and more adept at milking the system. Organizations like ACORN and the official in Ohio who retired from her job with full pension and then gets rehired to the exact same position at 75% of her pay (double dipping) are just a couple of examples of this. As real workers and entrepreneurs who contribute to the system are supplanted by slackers and government employees who take from the system, the entire system is being stretched to its breaking point.
