Death Panels and Representative Government

Sarah Palin was one of the leading voices of concern for "death panels" in Obamacare:

Too bad she wasn't as prophetic about death panels in the "war on terrorism":

Michael Cloud once said, "The problem is not the abuse of power; it's the power to abuse."

It is beyond the ability of "We the People" to keep up with all these government abuses. Every day another abuse is brought to light. We need to recognize that the entire power to abuse must be abolished. The entire concept of "representative" abuse must also be abolished.

Abolishing unconstitutional bureaucracies is just the first step.
Abolishing constitutional bureaucracies which are wasteful and inefficient is just the second step.
Abolishing constitutional bureaucracies which efficiently promote evil is just the third step. (Republicans have been breaking their promises to take these first steps for decades. Only Ron Paul is making serious and credible proposals to do even this much:

The final step is abolishing constitutional bureaucracies which efficiently promote something everyone believes is virtuous. This will come with the realization that promoting virtue through "representative government" -- that is, a program requiring the initiation of force and financed by taxation (which is theft) -- is always evil. This means the entire concept of "representative government" is evil.
