Proposition: Laws make things worse

May 30th, 2006

Cold remedies are made difficult for normal people to get to fight Meth and the Meth trade gets bigger and more violent as Mexican drug gangs take up the slack.

We make it ridiculously hard for talented people to emigrate to the United States and we end up with 11 million more unskilled illegal immigrants.

We make it impossible for citizens to own and carry firearms and illegal gun crimes continue apace.

All these laws inconvenience or endanger the people who try to obey the laws and reward the people most willing to break them.

It makes you wonder whose side our legislators are on.

    Wow- Very nicely put.

    Every time the government steps in to “solve” a problem, they always seem to create two or three more problems – each worse than the problem they were supposed to fix.

    Can you say Sarbanes-Oxley?

    How about Social Security? (Don’t think SS is a problem… Ask you grandkids what they think in 30 years!)

    Medicare?

    I’m fearful of the number of new problems that “fixing” these “soliutions” will create!

    Well said. So well, in fact, I may use it, if I get the chance. :)

    Stealing is the sincerest form of flattery…or something like that. ;)
