2. Over regulation. The government (federal, state, and local) continue coming up with regulations that are preventing economic growth. The government needs to back off and let the economy correct itself.
3. Another regulation issue that hurts the country and pisses me off personally - online poker. The US is knowing violating several international trade laws by not allowing citizens to play poker online. Because of this we are paying millions in fines every year to a few different countries and have been doing so for a few years now. So the government is basically choosing to pay millions in fines to other countries to limit our freedoms instead of regulating and taxing a site that could be based here in America.
If your premise in point 1 is that they are breaking the law and therefore criminals then should we send federal troops to secure the highways and streets from the people that are speeding, texting and drunk driving? Personally I think we should charge these people a few thousand dollars for legal entry since many will pay a coyote to bring them in we could use that money to alleviate the problem.
Point 2 is what i hear from tea partiers more and more and im not sure these people even know what they are talking about since they cant articulate it any more than regulations suck and the government needs to get out of the way. Many regulations are there for a damn good reason like safety or health.
I agree on point 3 no real reason it should be illegal
