Responsible and Workable Regulations-Communicating with the Regulators
Author: Richard E. Edwards

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. This quotation from the Declaration of Independence in 1776 was one of the facts submitted to a candid world to show that a change in government was needed.

Promises to reduce bureaucratic interference in the country's business and commercial activities played a large part in our most recent change in Washington.
