Most of these agencies shouldn’t even exist, yet they’re constantly passing regulations that We The People must obey or pay consequences. The executive branch has essentially usurped the power of the legislative branch all in the propagandist name of “best for the people and/or environment”. ABSOLUTELY NO LAW OR REGULATION should be passed in a republic without transparent debate and the requisite votes in its congress. When that ceases to happen, then we have lost the republic. When that ceases to happen, we move closer to tyranny.
