“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Shrinking the federal government

Heh heh, just read about a survey of federal employees that showed how 1/3 of them are seriously thinking of quiting their jobs after Trump's inauguration. Hilariously they cited Trump's intention to freeze federal hiring and shrink the federal labor force as the reason for their disgruntlement.

Just so I'm clear, your stand against Trump shrinking the federal labor force is to voluntarily shrink the federal labor force yourself?

Go for it and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. The vast, bloated, federal bureaucracy is rife with fraud, waste, corruption, duplicity, redundancy, graft, and bamboozlery and it needs to be shrunk, dramatically.

We should check back with these folks in like three months, where I predict a similar outcome as the crybaby celebrities who threatened to leave the US if Trump won.....as if somehow their not living among us is punishment, and not a blessing, for the American electorate. None of the beclowned celebrities left town and neither will these bureaucrats. They'll all still be in their lavishly compensated but useless jobs, sucking at the public teat as they've always done.

Take a 25% pay cut (or more) and actually have to produce something of value for a change? Not a chance.

It will be worse than them not leaving. Many committed leftists in government will actively sabotage any reform efforts in government. And with Civil Service laws protecting the "professional" Federal workforce, it will be impossible to get rid of these idiots even when you catch them sabotaging things. They will be hailed as whistle blowing heroes in the press. It is difficult to slow down and turn an aircraft carrier. Trump's best bet is to close entire departments and lay off all the workers in that agency. If they decide they still need the functions removed, hire new (vetted) workers to do the job in a still existing agency.
