“I wish the government would just ban itself”

“I wish the government would just ban itself” is an anti-government saying that has been printed on many images.
     
On the American animated sitcom King of the Hill, the episode “Trans-Fascism” that originally aired on February 10, 2008, the character Dale Gribble (voiced by actor Johnny Hardwick) said:
     
“Sometimes I wish the government would just ban itself. Wrap your heads around that, fellas.”
   
“‘I wish the government would just ban itself.’ -Dale Gribble” was posted on Twitter by Chris Frashure on August 3, 2009.

I recall with pleasure the episode of King of the Hill in which Dale Gribble says, “I wish the government would just ban itself!” I mention it because the result here is more or less the same thing. Government creating a law to prevent government from making a certain type of law.
