And sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

Now, I’m not saying that the current president is responsible for all of the recent federal overreach, abuse of power, or creation of pointless (and arguably unconstitutional) government offices, but…

The CEO of Gibson is a Republican donor; a competitor (who happens to be a Democratic donor) uses the same Indian rosewood, but has not been raided.

Selective enforcement of the law is tyrannical; if we are a nation of laws and not men (hah!), then Gibson’s competitors also ought to be raided (Though the Lahey Act is flat out insane in the first place; how is anyone supposed to keep track of foreign laws, or know whether foreign manufacturers complied with their own laws?).

While it’s tempting to lay the blame for this at the feet of the Obama administration (since it did happen on their watch), the propensity for the creation of powerful federal agencies is bipartisan, and no one on either side of the aisle has given any indication that they’re willing to consider shutting down the bureaucracies.
