interesting op-ed in the Washington Examiner. When everything is a crime, everybody is a criminal.
Statutory law in America has expanded to the point that government's primary activity is no longer to protect, preserve and defend our lives, liberty and property, but rather to stalk and entrap normal American citizens doing everyday things. After identifying three federal offenses in the U.S. Constitution - treason, piracy and counterfeiting - the federal government left most matters of law enforcement to the states. By the time President Obama took office in 2009, however, there were more than 4,500 federal criminal statutes on the books.
