The EPA, FDA and scores of other Federal agencies operate outside the confines of the US Constitution
by James White, Northwest Liberty News:
Something that always puzzled me is how we, as Americans, allow the Federal Government to “flip the script” when it comes to appropriate rules of conduct. The idea is that the officials (public servants) who we elect are supposed to be working for us, their constituents. Put another way, they are our employees. We, the people, are the boss. Or, at least we are supposed to be. So do the people that we elect act like employees, or do they act like overlords? I guess that depends on your perspective. However, I submit that if you owned a business you wouldn’t let your employees get away with what the people’s employees do. Just saying.
Although the culture of self-aggrandizement by many elected officials seems to be at its zenith, we always have the opportunity to “throw the bums out” come next election… if they get too far off the rails. Conversely, for the enormous list of alphabet agencies under the purview of the Feds there are no elections. Only tremendous power, and little accountability. In reality, what you have are unelected bureaucrats turning decision into law, outside the will of the people. That sure sounds like the land of the free to me. The EPA is one such powerful agency. To cite a recent example of the EPA’s power, we need not to look any farther than Wyoming. There, the EPA has changed the borders in the state of Wyoming. Yes, you read that right. In this instance, the EPA overturned Federal law enacted over 100 years ago.
