Something strange is happening in this land of the Free.  It’s a growing American distrust of the U.S. government. The respected Rasmussen Reports survey says 37 percent of voters now fear the federal government, only 19 percent believe the Feds have the consent of the governed, and 67 percent view the federal government as a special interest group.

Perceptions…but rapidly changing ones after revealment of NSA spying, IRS targeting, and most recent, the Bundy cattle standoff in Nevada.  Add to that ever- growing and ever- changing regulation on individual endeavor and behavior….even city governments, like Houston, are jumping onto that.  My observation is that when law abiding citizens find themselves confronted and hamstrung by the lawmakers they elected, there are no winners….except the lawyers.
