I keep seeing the claim that as of January 1, 2014, 40,000 new laws suddenly came into being.
Is this accurate? Does it matter?
Even one new law would have been bad enough. Every "law" ever written needs to go away. Declining to repeal all the bad counterfeit "laws" (arbitrary rules) is just as big a failure as passing new "laws".
I suppose there is a good side: 40,000 new opportunities to be an outlaw.
