Glenn Reynolds: Don’t let U.S. become next Rome … Entrenched political elites will sacrifice anything to retain power, including their own country…. As you vote, remember that the more resources you put under the control of the political class, the more likely it is that things will eventually go bad. Politicians seldom look past the next election, and they’re willing to sacrifice pretty much anything to hang on. And that “pretty much anything” includes you. – USA Today
Glenn Reynolds is law professor and member of the USA Today editorial board. He makes good points in this just-published editorial, as you can see above.
But the reality goes far deeper than that.
The main idea Reynolds presents is that the more control voters give politicians, the more resources they have at hand to abuse.
In other words, politicians will invariably use the power they have to enrich themselves and their cronies at your expense.
