Many of the so-called "hate crimes" are actually spawned by government actions against individuals. Here are the wrongs government does to people that makes them mad enough to strike out, and why they cause hate crimes:


People are mad because government is taking over control of every aspect of their daily lives:

  1. Lack of enough facilities for travel: This is the biggest cause of anger there is. High-minded government officials value "the environment" and social programs over the basic needs of the people they are supposed to be serving. Lack of highway capacity and parking space causes people to battle over the available facilities. Shootings and deliberate rammings result. Mass transit is not the answer, because it can't possibly serve the needs of even a small portion of the daily travelers. A late bus is no excuse to an early boss. Zoning is one of the biggest causes of this problem, because it separates factories and the homes of workers by miles.
  2. Using fear to control people: Officials, and especially candidates, use scare tactics and false scapegoats to frighten people into giving up their rights. Here are some famous examples of this trickery: Many people become very angry with government when they learn the truth.
  3. Affirmative Action: This may be great for the minorities who get the jobs, but for the white male working his way up through the ranks, it's devastating. To make a government-imposed quota, the company promotes someone less qualified than he is to be his supervisor. Then he is laid off, even though he has more seniority, so the company does not fall out of compliance. Now he can't find work, due to the combined effects of Affirmative Action and the minimum wage. This causes many to join white-supremacy groups, when they should be voting against the legislators that push these programs. To add insult to injury, the union he belongs to contributes part of his union dues to those politicians, and urges him to support the very people who took his job away.
  4. Government control of education: What easier way is there to mold minds to believe what the current administration favors than to drill it into childrens' heads in government-regulated schools? Priorities are given to aesthetic skills instead of employable skills, creating an angry group of unemployable young adults. The schools are used to drill children into favoring the politics of the party in power. Finally, it is a way to force education in the government-sponsored religion of Secular Humanism (where government is the deity) on children whose parents are unable to afford private school. Pupils who obey the moral values of their parents instead of the teacher's Humanist values are penalized. No wonder people like Timothy McVeigh go over the edge and set bombs!
  5. Being "good parents of society" for ulterior ends: Government officials think of themselves as the parents of a whole population of little children. They treat people like little children, watching constantly so they don't get hurt. Here are examples of their condescending attitudes: It's enough to make someone mad enough to want to bash some "sense" into the heads of legislators with a sledgehammer (attempts to shoot legislators will fail, because the bullets will just go through the holes in their heads).
  6. Too much judicial power: When a judge can insert a personal political belief into the law, without any vote by a legislature or an executive's signature, something is very wrong. "Separation of Church and State" is one such personal belief, taken directly from the Communist Manifesto. Judges are also targeting Christians, for their own political reasons. Judges are now using the excuse that "government must be allowed to operate" to remove our civil rights.
  7. Self centered legislators: They hold elaborate public hearings. After the hearings, instead of listening to what the people had to say, they stick with their original plans.
  8. Using eminent domain to regulate: When a business is doing something legal that legislators don't like, they take the property of that business with eminent domain to stop it.


People are mad because their taxes and bills are going up, and their paychecks buy less and less. Here are the reasons why:

  1. They tax low-income people: Revenue is king to the legislators and bureaucrats, since people living on minimum wage are still pouring money into income, sales, and property taxes. This alone shows how much government really cares for the poor. Think about these points: Then see my page on Fair Taxation
  2. Taxes are too high: Government takes 72 percent of the average personal income, because all business taxes are passed onto consumers. This makes people have to work much harder to make ends meet. Government is living in luxury off the backs of the people.
  3. Government officials are overpaid: The salaries of government employees, especially legislators, executives, and judges, are outrageously high. Meanwhile people who do more work than they do get minimum wage. Voters, not legislators, should set salaries.
  4. Minimum wage throws people out of work: A raise in the standard of living seems to be good -- for those workers who get to enjoy it. The rest lose their jobs because their jobs aren't worth the new wage rate, or their employers can't afford to pay that many employees at that rate. This leaves a lot of angry unemployed people, and they tend to blame the business instead of the government regulation that caused the problem.
    More points to ponder:
  5. Duties on imported products: These are intended to unfairly protect union wages and overtaxed businesses from competition in the free market. It's another cause of high prices, and in the long run, the nation that imposes the duties loses economically.
  6. Revenue comes first: Government sometimes designs its laws to increase revenue at the expense of the outward intent of passing the law. Here are some prime examples of revenue-comes-first governing:
  7. Taxing business: Consumers really pay, whether the business raises prices, reduces wages, or is totally driven out of business.
  8. Programs to create jobs: They don't work. Government can't create jobs through economic policy. For every 100 jobs government "creates," 110 jobs are lost elsewhere due to the higher taxes needed to create the jobs. An exception occurs when government cuts taxes, builds better roads, or reduces regulation. These do not cause job losses elsewhere.
  9. Coveting business profit: Remember this rule:

    Without profit, there is no reason to hire.

  10. Changing the rules in the middle of the game: People make long-term decisions based on the existing rules. Then government changes the regulations, causing these people to lose money or property. Here are some examples:
  11. Ignoring costs of regulations: They pass fancy rules businesses and homeowners have to follow, but do not consider the costs they make people absorb. These costs are the causes of business failures, layoffs, and bankruptcies. Some people have to cheat on the rules to survive. Many businesses to flee the country and its wacky regulations, taking their jobs with them.
  12. Property tax: This requires people to have monetary incomes much larger than they would otherwise need, just to keep their houses. It raises the amount social service agencies spend on rent, and it discriminates against the poor and retired. It is the primary cause of homelessness. It is not a "tax for the rich" as politicians claim. The tenant of any rental unit pays the entire property tax on that unit in the rent payments (if not, the unit would be demolished or sold).
  13. Income tax: This requires people who do odd jobs and those who employ others to keep voluminous records. Many go on public assistance because they have problems working under a boss, and they can't do the paperwork for a sole proprietorship. It is not a "tax for the rich" as politicians claim, especially when those on minimum wage are paying income taxes.
  14. Capital gains tax: This is not a "tax for the rich" as politicians claim, since anyone selling a house can have a capital gain. What is really bad is that the selling price can increase due to inflation, forcing the seller to pay capital gain tax for a gain he did not realize (the money changed value, not the house).
  15. Penalizing people for working: Government finds many ways to penalize people for working: Parking fees and parking meters penalize people who live far from their jobs. There is never enough space for parking. Income taxes penalize working, while welfare rewards idleness.
  16. Forcing changes in standards on consumers: HDTV will require everyone to replace TV sets, VCRs, and video tapes. Doing this to "create jobs" is a false economy, and also creates a solid waste problem as the old equipment is thrown out.
  17. Using tax revenue for nice, but unnecessary purposes: Government steals money from hard working people, and then wastes it on the whims of legislators. This is slap in the face of the hard-working honest taxpayer. These include professional sports arenas, arts, music programs, dramas, entertainments, convention centers, auditoriums, flower beds, and other nonessential government expenditures. These should be funded by voluntary donations from people favoring these purposes, or private enterprise could provide these functions if there is a demand for them.
  18. Charging for justice: When government charges for justice, criminals get away with crime while innocent people are punished. Here are some serious questions to ask: This is another example of the "me first" government. If laws were written so anyone could understand them, the costs would be much lower. The person really at fault, including the false accuser or the police officer who makes a mistake, should pay all of the costs, including the legal fees of the innocent party so wronged. The innocent party wrongly accused should not have to sue to recover these damages.
  19. Government gets first pick in bankruptcies and estates: The "me first" attitude of government is a hardship, both monetarily and psychologically, on those who have already suffered a loss. Other parties who were owed money by the bankrupt or deceased lose out because "government comes first." Many government officials seem to believe that inheritance is "unfair" because they covet if for their pet programs.


Government takes choices away from voters in elections, or scares voters into voting the way government wants them to.

  1. Politicians exploit unfair election methods: The "vote for only one" election system has biases in it that allow politicians to control the outcome of races: See my fair elections page for a solution.
  2. Conscription to fill the military: This is nothing but a cheap way to save money through substandard military pay. Governments that force people to defend them are not worth saving. In addition, they can never fully count on or trust the conscriptees. If a fair government needs defending, there will be all too many volunteers to do it.
  3. Too many legislators are lawyers: They purposely design the law so more people need the services of their profession.
  4. All government employees want a bigger government: Their motive is to ensure their own continued employment.
  5. Too many levels of government: How many? Right now, I have to deal with these: UN, Federal, State, Conservancy District, Solid Waste District, County, Library District, Parks District, School District, City, Township, and Precinct. Each has taxing authority, but not all of them have elected officials. How about reducing this to three: Federal, State, and County? The rest are unnecessary duplications, or items that should not be part government at all.
  6. Taking private property for public use: Transportation and water supply are the only uses that require specific plots of land. Government uses this ploy to get property cheaper than it can get it on the market. In addition, government sometimes takes property to unfairly drive out a business, or to harass opponents. In addition:
  7. Government employees get special privileges: This is unequal protection under the law. Police have too much power to destroy property. Without citizen's arrest, police can decide what laws are to be enforced and what laws are ignored, defeating the power of the legislature. Police are frequently observed breaking traffic laws. Bureaucrats also have too much power to disrupt the lives of others. Officials should have no powers that ordinary people can't exercise.
  8. Suppressing religion: Government is actively trying to discourage the practice of religion. Too many government officials want to be worshiped in place of God. Removing religion from schools favors Atheism and Secular Humanism, religions with no organized practice or doctrine. Government sometimes promotes or aids activities offensive to some religions: Such practices caused the revolts at Waco Texas, Oklahoma City, and Wounded Knee.
  9. Citizenship and identification requirements: When governments control who can be citizens of their country, and who can be inside the borders of the country, that is the ultimate oppression. There should be no such thing as a citizen. Policing borders for any purpose except to repel invasion is an abuse of government power.
    Some Christian religions prohibit identification numbers. Required identification numbers violate the religious beliefs of individuals in these religions.
  10. Daylight-saving time: They steal an hour from us for April Fools, and give it back for a Halloween prank. This time shift actually causes disturbances in the brains of sensitive individuals. More time and resources are wasted setting clocks, curing headaches, and repairing cars wrecked when people not used to darkness or bright sun suddenly are driving in new conditions. Some industrial process systems cannot be programmed correctly if the clock controlling them is advanced and retarded twice a year. It doesn't even save energy, it wastes it, when people come home from work an hour early and turn up air conditioners an hour earlier.
  11. Pure stupidity is told to us as fact They abuse statistics and conjure up false science to fool us. Here are some of their worst:
  12. A single budget bill This violates constitutional protections, because each house, and the executive, individually has the power to force an item to be in the budget. The original design required the approval of all three to spend money.
