Let's look at the root of the tree, ah ha! I see filibusters all around protecting the roots. Bernie waxing large about what we should do, and apparently cannot see 'root' problem with ideas. One cannot change the mind of another, and usually one really never says what is on mind anyway.

The people of the radio show were talking about not expanding government over sight, but expanding funding for enforcement of current laws. My question is: How can one exist without the other?

Now I ask.......what can we do as citizens to stop this madness?
