Liberals are burrowed into the bureaucracy

Weekly Standard:
“.  .  . vast bureaucracies of civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil." (Winston Churchill)
There is, however, another interlocking public-private collaboration that is at once more insidious, more powerful, and more straightforwardly partisan: the liberal ideological complex. We do not always see this collaboration so clearly, because we tend to view each aspect of it as unique and not part of a larger picture. We look, for example, at public sector unions as a labor issue. We look at funding for Planned Parenthood through the lens of abortion policy. We look at EPA regulations and grants in terms of global warming and job destruction. And so on and so forth, down to the smallest, most narrowly tailored grant awards of the federal government.

Yet in each of these cases, the complex functions in essentially the same way. Federal funds are provided for organizations that carry out liberal policies. In turn, these groups employ like-minded staff and both the leadership and the staff of these groups contribute money, time, and services to the politicians who favor this use of federal funds. This creates a vicious circle in which campaign funds are indirectly skimmed off the top of taxpayer-funded organizations, all in the service of liberal ideology.
There is much more.

I call the teachers' union contributions to local officials inherent corruption.  They then negotiate with the people with whom they have put in office with their contributions and the taxpayer who actually pays their salaries has no voice in the decision.  This is what is happening with all these liberal interests groups and their incestuous association with the bureaucrats who support them.
