Why don't you get involved in politics?

The codes are thick because when government swings them at a citizen, they hurt.

And who swings the codes and regulations at those who'd open their mouths? A government worker. That government worker owes his or her job to the political boss. And that boss has a boss.
The worker doesn't have to be told. The worker wants a promotion. If an irritant rises, it is erased. The hack gets a promotion. This is government. So everybody kept their mouths shut, and Chicago was hailed by national political reporters as the city that works. IRS scandal a reminder of how I learned about the Chicago Way - chicagotribune.com

Maybe we can schedule a series of bus trips to DC when the gov't shuts down for summer vacay and we can listen to some speeches in the hot sun and pick up some litter and go home. If that doesn't teach them what we mean when we say "don't tread on me" I don't know what will.
