Candidates tripping over their own laws [UPDATED]

Published 9:53am Monday, October 29, 2012 Updated 11:56am Monday, October 29, 2012

We are a nation of lawyers. Every election since voting began we elect lawmakers.

This means we/ they have been adding new laws for hundreds of years and now they are tripping over their own laws and sending each other to jail.

Now we start very few new businesses because it costs too much time and money to meet all the requirements and bare all the burden of collecting all sorts of taxes for our government and insurance’s to fend off the lawyers. It all comes back as inflation.
