The reason behind government bloat: crony capitalism

John Daly, “Big versus small government is not a real issue”:

The underlying problem of government bloat is crony capitalism.  Special interests – like AARP and the military industrial complex — rule.

The smartest thing that the special interests and the military-industrial complex ever did was associating people who talk about special interests and the military-industrial with left-wing loonies. They are the biggest single problem within our political system, yet they are essentially impossible to get rid of because of their money and influence.
