Quote for the Day

"…so long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men." -- Voltarine de Cleyre

Here a Czar, There a Czar, Everywhere You Look a Czar!

As the number of so-called "czars" keeps piling up, it's raising serious questions about how powerful these White House insiders are..."It underscores the inefficiency of government that you keep ... having people, hoping that maybe they will get something done that the massive government bureaucracy cannot," he said...Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., likens these officials to part of a parallel government, "one that is outside of the Constitution and the authority of Congress." [link]

I would like to bring these czar's to everyone's attention. America needs to keep a close eye on these czars. Especially since they do cross over cabinet boundaries, have sweeping influence and power, and do not have to be vetted, or approved by Congress.
