    Structures, eh? Tell me, have you ever actually looked into exactly how much the government is involved in? Did you ever try to find something in the economy that the government isn't controlling? It's actually pretty hard to do.

    Some regulations doesn't equal control. Why always exaggerate?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Should we play a little game then? I will mention something I want to do and you can tell me the government regulations attached to it. Do you want to play?

    First one...

    Build a deck on my property.

    Maybe when we are done you will realize the government is controlling the conditions of everything.

    Sure let's play that game. And let's play how the Dems AND the GOP go along with it. Yet people on both sides still play the "Best of two Evils" game. No matter what you choose between the two, you're still choosing Evil.

    when will both sides realize they are playing a losing hand and search for something different? The Duopoly of the Dems and Reps are RUINING this country.

    You're missing the point. They don't control. They just make sure I don't do anything unsafe. If you want, I'll post common regulations. They are minor, and hardly add up to control.

    And usually in reaction to something that happened and led to people, voters, asking for the regulation.

    I think the point is, that each and every couple of years, the regulations are piled on (by both sides) and loopholes given that nobody can even operate without giving either kickbacks to some group, or failing the regulations of some sort. Even you have to agree that some regulations have gone too far.

    The point is that some regulations are just plain stupid and over-reactionary from both sides. Just because people ask for it, doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. 9/11 is the perfect example.

    If I can't do any kind of repair, improvement, construction, modification or demolition work on my house or property without a permit then exactly how do I control it? Don't you think it's odd that I'm the property owner and yet I need permission by the state to do most things on my property?

    Perhaps, though no such rule has ever effected my life. But because people put pressure that threatens re-election, that's why we see it. Politicians behave like we gave a direct democracy today, and not representatives. The same people who want elected officials to dig their heels in ground, don't seem to see how that leads to regulations. Politicians respond to both.
