‘Government Is Just Another Criminal Gang’

The Illinois Democratic Party (with help from Republicans) is doing its best to prove this Rothbardian statement correct. The last two governors of Illinois are now convicted felons who are in prison. (One Republican and now Democrat “Blago”).  The Chicago Democratic Party political machine has long been regarded as the most corrupt political organization in America. They consider ACORN to be their “moral compass.” Former Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Danny Rostenkowski of Chicago, spent years in prison for theft, among other crimes. And of course all of these exact same people — Illinois Democrats — are now totally in control of the executive branch of the federal government.  The worst DO rise to the top in government, as F.A. Hayek wrote in is classic book, The Road to Serfdom.  Government is essentially organized theft, and the most proficient thieves, frauds, and liars naturally rise to the top. It’s what an old friend called the “septic tank theory of government”: The big chunks float to the top.
