People who work for the government are supposed to be the servants of the taxpayers.

In a society that respects business and free enterprise that is how it is.

In a society where the people pray at the alter of government, the bureaucrats, “elected” officials, appointees and government contractors are the patrons and the people are the servants. That is where we are heading.

In countries where this is practiced, you wait in lines that can last most of the day to get some form stamped by some official so that you can travel to the next county only to see the friends and neighbors of this functionary, skip to the front of the line.
