We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Administrative law only works if there is an active legislative branch which spells out what the bureaucrats can and can't do and exercises stringent oversight over them to make sure they are carrying out the laws that have been passed. Our lazy Congress instead simply passes vague and confusing statutes (viz. the Obamacare Debacle) and delegates it to the bureaucracy to figure out what it means.
The problem was compounded in the Obama years, where the lawless Obama administration took the position it could interpret the law any way it wanted, whether or not it was acting in direct violation of the statute.
This was also made worse by the Obama Doctrine, where Obama took the position that if Congress refused to act the way he wanted, he could simply promulgate an executive order to supplant "Congress' failure to act."
Most of Obama's illegal legacy is being invalidated or dismantled by Trump and his administration, but it has certainly done major harm to the country.
The only surprising thing is that they have not pushed for the full compulsory economy (Zwangswirtschaft of the Nazis), although that push which the New Deal shared with the Nazis did fall out of favor by the 1960s. Instead the more gentle interventionism was continued, excepting the deregulation in the early 1980s, which led to economic growth, only to be steadily regulated into the malaise of the 21st century, so far. Obamacare was a disheartening event as it was a direct move toward the compulsory economy.
The Dictatorial, Anti-Democratic and Socialist Character of Interventionism
Many advocates of interventionism are bewildered when one tells them that in recommending interventionism they themselves are fostering anti-democratic and dictatorial tendencies and the establishment of totalitarian socialism. They protest that they are sincere believers and opposed to tyranny and socialism. What they aim at is only the improvement of the conditions of the poor. They say that they are driven by considerations of social justice, and favour a fairer distribution of income precisely because they are intent upon preserving capitalism and its political corollary or superstructure, viz., democratic government.
What these people fail to realize is that the various measures they suggest are not capable of bringing about the beneficial results aimed at. On the contrary they produce a state of affairs which from the point of view of their advocates is worse than the previous state which they were designed to alter. If the government, faced with this failure of its first intervention, is not prepared to undo its interference with the market and to return to a free economy, it must add to its first measure more and more regulations and restrictions. Proceeding step by step on this way it finally reaches a point in which all economic freedom of individuals has disappeared. Then socialism of the German pattern, the Zwangswirtschaft of the Nazis, emerges.
