Why we can't just trust the guvmit

Balloon Juice:
I suppose that we should be grateful for the current batch of leaders in DC.
If they managed to handle their massive power grab with any degree of responsibility then a decent plurality of the public may have considered it ok. That would be ten times worse, because the expanded powers would be engraved into common practice and that much harder to roll back when a subsequent administration decided to abuse them. Thankfully for our nation the Executive branch has done us all the favor of illustrating exactly why we don’t trust government with expanded power and limited oversight.
This is an interesting way of looking at it. I suppose it is best that they've illustrated why their actions were bad, so we wouldn't have to come up with theoretical reasons why they're bad.
