The Department of Redundancy Department


US Federal programs have expanded unnecessarily over decades, but they are seldom ended, even when the reason for their creation is long gone. The concept of redundancy is best known from the military including duplicate means of firing a weapon in case part of the triggering mechanism is damaged.


Redundancy in federal programs is caused by planned political crises that send legislators scrambling to address the “problem”. This bolsters their ideological arsenal to build bureaucracies to further ideological objectives. Unfortunately, all of these bureaucracies advance socialism and damage the US economy.


We saw an unacceptable amount of federal government waste and abuse in the Obama administration with the implementation of UN Agenda 21 that posed real threats to our economy, freedom and standard of living.


We saw earlier abuse and neglect with the passage of laws like the Community Reinvestment Act of 1993 and HUD anti-discrimination rules that led to the 2008 Financial Meltdown.


We saw abuse by the EPA, the Interior Department and other agencies that expanded federal lands, threaten a 5-fold increase in our electric bills, seize our property and water, implement the Wilding Project, thwart our private property rights and use the Delphi Technique to feign voter participation.


Trump has frozen federal government hiring and is cutting budgets in most departments to cut waste. I expect Democrats to attempt to derail all of Trump’s proposed spending cuts as soon as the budget process begins.
