The older I get the more I see.
I stand back and look at all the problems placed upon the government today, that the people want fixed.

I go back through my years and read the history, and the things government is placed with fixing, are problems they themselves created.
I am at the end of my search to find a problem today, that government didn't create by their action in the past.

I know being observant and living in NY, any time the government gets their hands on something, they address problems with problems, and perpetuate problems...

All governments should be abolished so that the guy with the biggest gun is free to seize power. Oh wait...a guy who seizes power is known as a king...so that would be a kind of government.

Dang.

They create new problems and solve nothing.

We would only need a jury, drawn of our peers, to hear the argument for each problem and a vote who will monitor it. Based upon the text of the Constitution.

Does government solve problems or do they just solve problems they have created?
They create problems, and they blame someone else. For example, the Republicans blame Obama for spending money they gave him.

That solves nothing but the lust to troll the truth.
