It’s time “We The People” make a concerted effort to elect politicians who truly want government to be effective and work for the greater good of the American people. I’ve long suspected our politicians actually want government to be ineffective on purpose. We currently have elected officials in place whom benefit from government yet don’t want the majority of Americians to do the same. This is how our Congress can take home six figure salaries and handsome benefits packages while a large number of their constituents face possibly losing healthcare in the coming months.
The anti-government naysayers will say big, beauracratic, centralized government in America is ineffective because our system was designed by our founding fathers to prevent the federal government from becoming too expansive. Accordingly, our founding fathers knew big government would mean the loss of individual liberties, so they put the Constitution in place to prevent this. Additionally, the only solution to big government is to significantly reduce the size and scope of government even if it means cutting programs people love. But don’t hold your breath waiting for beneficiaries to relinquish their Medicare, Social Security or Veterans’ Benefits because of our founding fathers’ suspected theory of big government.
So why do people who work for the government desire it to be a broken, inefficient, dysfunctional system?
To condition citizens to expect less, so they can justify doing less. This is why despite being the richest country in the world, healthcare is still not a right in America.
To make the case for privatization which equates to profit over people. We all know politicians benefit handsomely from various private sector campaign contributions which assists with personal travel expenses, expensive gifts, etc
