Itís only a few small countries which beat us on that metric. We could have done better if we had restricted immigration more. But itís still been rising steadily for the past 50+ years, so how does that qualify as a decline?
"As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose -- that it may violate property instead of protecting it -- then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder. Political questions will always be prejudicial, dominant, and all-absorbing. There will be fighting at the door of the Legislative Palace, and the struggle within will be no less furious." - Bastiat, The Law
