James Bovard is no fan of Big Government and under the last administration, the power of government mushroomed across the board. In "Feeling Your Pain", Bovard looks back at the Clinton-Gore record on such abuses and absurdities as taxes, gun control, the Waco fiasco, Americorps, and federal funding of every program from those dealing with disaster relief to those that put on puppet shows in Northern California.

He also provides us with a fitting coda to the last eight years as he looks at the pardons, protections, and the downright nincompoopery of Clinton's last days.
