I find it interesting that people who hate big corporations embrace the ever-growing nanny state. The reality is the nanny state is nothing but a gigantic corporation that hires those who would not be hired in the private workforce at prices far more than they are worth.
In many respects, government is no different than big business. Governments, like business want to grow. Bureaucrats always want more employees and bigger budgets.
The difference is the nanny state is run by politics not by profit. It is run for a political agenda.
If you want a perfect example of a corporation too big to succeed, it's the government.
Take a look at those protesting in Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio and elsewhere.
Who is protesting government cuts? Why it's government employees. They protest for their benefit, not the benefit of the public at large and they want government to use even more force to take what it needs.
What does it take to stop the madness?
