It is funny that you mention salaries, as this is all public

record for anyone that wants to know. As a local activist I can tell you who wields the power that people fear, and it is not the meter man, nor the maintenance folks, nor the Librarians, but the Sheriff, Mayor, and County Commission in local government, short of that there are no employees which hold any power over the public whatsoever. The opinions that have been expressed here are including these people that work, go home, and live as we all do, but to suggest that anything but a small minority in local government has any power over anyone is simply wrong.

My sister is an accountant for local government, she has no police powers, she could have made much more money in the private sector, she puts into her 401K like anyone in the private sector, and her insurance is horrible compared to the local private sector car plant down the road.

She got out of college and could have gone to work there with a fluctuating schedule, working nights and weekends, and the only real benefit she gets for working there is weekends off with her kids. So attack her for this immoral decision, for this conspiracy against the people, the treasonous support she gives while ensuring the engineering and public works teams have enough money to meet budgetary limits for road salt, clean water creeks, and pot hole repairs. What an attacker of Liberty she is, she who stole tax payer dollars by- weekly and contributed to Dr. Paul's campaign for putting 40 hours if work in, or the myriad of Ron Paul bumper stickers in the parking lot of her office, tyrants one and all. (sarcasm off)

Point being that there are those who do not respect oaths they took who wield real power, dangerous and immoral people in government, but not all people are out to get the public. My sister did not create government, and her salary is public knowledge, yet not one single protest or sit in because of the service she provides via her education, and the idea that people here think that there is a grand conspiracy only lends fuel to the fire to those that know better, and would rightfully label us nuts for even mentioning harming people just like ourselves making a living working for government that has been here before she or I wither one was born.
