How could this situation be sustainable?
Two answers: 1) the federal government is an extension of the media, which controls most of the population the way drovers control cattle on the way to the stockyards; and 2) the government bribes half of the population with the other half’s money.
When it existed within its proper constitutional boundaries, the federal government was a good thing. Those days are a distant memory.
