Most of these laws, rules and regulations were established by people who believed that they had "good intentions", but at this point the nanny state has become so oppressive that it is strangling the life out of us. If you look back throughout history, the societies that have really thrived have had a very high degree of liberty and freedom. When the bureaucrats get the upper hand, it can suck the life out of any economy. Unfortunately, our political system seems to be a magnet for control freaks. These control freaks truly believe that they know better than the rest of us and they are systematically moving toward taking total control of our lives.
Our rights are being stripped away a little bit more with each passing day, and we are being told that we need a "permit" or a "license" for almost everything. Many younger Americans have been living this kind of "straight jacket existence" for so long that they don't even remember what real liberty and freedom are. We are steamrolling down the road toward totalitarianism, and most Americans don't even realize what is happening.
Sadly, there are many Americans that actually agree that the state should regulate nearly every detail of our lives. There are many Americans that actually believe that life is better when there are millions of rules that we all have to follow. There are many Americans that actually believe that too much liberty and freedom is a bad thing.
