One can crawl under any rock and get an education about the inner workings of politics. Skulk around most dark alleys and you can learn how a good confidence game can suck the very lifeblood and fortunes from a "mark" or sucker. However, if one truly appreciates and marvels at watching the veritable masters of all scam artists at work, one need to search no farther than the present-day liberal-progressives and their film-flam-artist-in-chief Barrack Hussein Obama.

History has shown the federal government does little well and nothing efficiently. Therefore, we should trust them to do nothing for us that we can do for ourselves. Two facts we should always remember; placing a bureaucrat or politician between a citizen and a task to be done is paramount to greasing a sled with molasses, and that politicians will tell any lie to get our money and our freedom.
We elect these crooks and we alone can stop them.
