Is it my imagination or are ALL of our federal bureacracies controlled by the Democratic Party? Look at immigration--it is all about what Democrats want--more uneducated poor immigrants who will vote for them. Welfare--who controlls welfare? We can't find out what happens to our money even when it is going to terrorists. What is going on here and why haven't the Republicans put their foot down? Aren't they half of the government? How long have the Democrats owned our national bureaucracy?
If not, then enough Republicans are liberal enough to go along with the agenda. It’s not down to political parties here.
Because they seem to like Democrats in charge just fine (at least the Establishment wing does).
The overwhelming majority of those who draw US Government paychecks (apart from uniformed members of the Armed Forces) are filthy,worthless supporters of the Rat Party and have been for years.So even with a Republican President you basically have a Maoist government.
“How long have the Democrats owned our national bureaucracy?”
At least since FDR
The Democrat Party is turning into the "Government Party," especially as Gov't gets bigger and bigger. Why do you think the home of all bureaucrats, Washington DC, votes 90% democrat every election?
EPA probably gave their workers taxpayer paid time off to attend OWS events.
0dumb0 (aka Big Ears) IS in charge of the Executive.
Do you see those offices of bureaucracy de-funded or closed, when Republicans occupy the White House and both houses of Congress? No.
Those bureaucracies are controlled certain constituents who support both political parties—one only a little more than the other. Most incomes come either directly or indirectly from government debt/revenues.
i fear far too many perfumed princes of the pentagon including some non-flag officers also fall into this category.
look, we could have overcome the fraud last election, but we didn't....we failed...we had self appointed saints among us who just couldn't vote for Romney..well, that's that....
its starts again with the ragging on Marco.....pathetic....
today, I find myself wondering where we will have to move....maybe its the tax season thats got me done, or the Pigford farce, but I no longer feel America is fair,right,moral,ethical,or God fearing....
Well of course they are...along with most state and county bureaucracies, the "education" system, the media, the film industry and most of secondary education.
It should be called the BureaucRAT Party.
By Jove, I think you're getting it! This is what is meant by "elections have consequences!"
As if all the years of Republican control changed anything.
Actually, that's a little misleading. Overall, the bulk of the military, active duty and retired, are conservative. At the upper ranks, however, more of the senior officers tend to support the Dems because the upper echelon of the military is more political than anything else. And, it's pretty much always been that way.
Do you see those offices of bureaucracy de-funded or closed, when Republicans occupy the White House and both houses of Congress? No.When has the GOP ever controlled the White House and both houses of Congress?
They had a majority in the Senate for a short time during the Bush administration, in addition to holding the House, but it wasn't nearly enough to pass any sort of transforming legislation.
Even if they wanted to.
They would have had to (and should have) voted to decertify the federal employee unions and then fired all the drones...which would be most of them.
The entire US government, for all practical purposes, is composed of a variety of alphabet agencies not sanctiond by the constitution and staffed by unemployables who owe their paychecks to the Democrats.
Perhaps the government isn’t “controlled” by the Democrats, but it’s certainly generated and staffed by endless lines of otherwise useless characters - or, worse yet, characters who simply obstruct law-abiding citizens and their activities for a living - who all know which side their bread is buttered on and vote accordingly.
Maybe some people need a civics lesson? The bureaucracies come under the Executive branch of government. At the moment, that branch is in fact held by Democrats. Every Department Secretary and Agency head is appointed by the president. That’s just how it works.
The GOP controls 1/2 of 1 of the government’s 3 branches, i.e.m the House of Representatives. The Judiciary is the 3rd branch, and again its judges (who hold lifetime appointments) are appointed by the president with the advise and consent of the Senate (controlled now by the Democrat).
So, no, the GOP does not control half, but only one-sixth of the government and, yes, the Democrats basically do control the government.
MAYBE folks would remember that for the next election when they are too high minded to vote for someone not quite conservative enough for them. But not likely.
