A memorable Detroit Lions game this year was the team’s one-point loss to the Green Bay Packers. Detroit seemed to be playing against additional and powerful opponents – the referees. The Lions were crushed by some unbelievable penalty calls while players and spectators stood by and watched helplessly.
That game describes much of today's governmental landscape. Government bureaucrats are the referees, calling the definitive and sometimes unfair shots. Hard-working citizens are the players and spectators.
