Fundamental Flaw In Logic Our Founders Well Understood

Here is an excellent video of Peter Schiff at the Occupy Wall Street Protests:

The fundamental flaw in the logic of these protesters is that Washington/government can ever be brought to heel!

Just one more regulation, one more law, or if we could only eliminate the money from Wall Street then we can control the system.

The assumption that government has to be big and in control is simply wrong and was well understood by our founders when they set up our system.  As Peter points out, if you take away the power to control you take away the ability to influence and thus to be controlled.
