That's easier said then done. The problem I have is that everything in the government is broken. The Bank regulators, Boarder patrol, ICE, the MMS, the treasury dept even non government agencies. The SEC, the Federal Reserve is broken and not regulated.
So where do we start? Obviously IMHO at the voting booth. These morons in the government today are professional politicians and haven't got a clue how we the people feel or what we really care about. Look at how many listened when we said no the the bailouts for the banks.
Iceland is the only smart country on the planet right now. The English and Netherland Govs asked that they pay the money invested back. They put it to a vote and the people said no. With investment comes inherent risk.
You Lost the money in a investment so you lose. I like the way they think. The money we Borrowed to bail out our banks went over seas. Ya what a great idea that was.
And in the meantime BP drills a relief well instead using or trying a shape charge to close the fricken pipe below the gulf floor.
The reason government is broken is because private industry, with the help of conservatives, broke it. Conservatives do all they can to shield the oil industry against government interferance, condemn government regulation and do all they can to make government regulation as ineffective as possible because they see government as the problem... and then when you have a catastrophe llike this happens, they turn around and say unbelievable things like, "See, government is broken! Where were the regulators?!"
You're right. Government is broken because conservatives broke it. The regulators weren't doing their job because the oil company did everything in their power to make sure that they wouldn't. The government isn't the problem. The modern conservative movement in America is the problem.
