Faith in Our Government

Many have lost faith in the government and are completely afraid that no one there has a clue as to what they are doing. Others have complete faith. Which is the right answer? Is it somewhere in between? Are our tax dollars being spent efficiently? Who is over seeing this huge blob of bureaucracy?

The consumers and tax payers; remember us? Shouldn't all agencies walk the walk or close the agency. Here are a few of the unbelievable failures of our Government Agencies with regards to public monies and information. Simply go to this site put in any of the letters designating any agency and see how much, fraud, abuse and waste there is and then multiply that blob of bureaucratic waste by the number of agencies listed on our site.

Just search any of the multitude of agencies and see that few if any have a near perfect records or timely reports, it is a total disaster. Too many agencies wasting too much money and then they cannot even tell us where it was spent or how much they did spend. Just how many agencies are there? Well there are more than you think and none of them do anything very well. Here is a quick list, pretty comprehensive, but not all are listed here.

Many government agencies are quick to defend themselves, saying we are fixing the problem or this is a huge bureaucracy. Yes, no doubt, but if we are going to put CEOs in jail for not filling out forms or crash the stock of a company for a late filing or questionable accounting practice then surely a few heads in government ought to roll in retrospect, that is what any leader of any company would do, and what any Chief of any agency ought to have the balls to do, yet they simply promote the offenders to another division within the agency and up they go onto the ladder of the governmental blob. The abuses and scandals in government far out weigh anything we generally see in the corporate world.

A corporation, which ran like any government agency would be out of business and sued into oblivion by shareholders and Elliot Spitzer or SEC within weeks. Yet these issues continue and are so prevalent that they are actually accepted as the norm? We need to clean up the wasteful mess in government agencies as they spend our monies. Too often they go around pointing fingers at totally honorable companies who create everything we see, only to be victimized by agencies which cannot even balance their own books.

I see we are looking into this and that many of the agencies are improving, but certainly not fast enough considering the wastefulness and incompetence at every level. How can this be acceptable? How can we condemn the entrepreneurs of the world and the Capitalists who have provided all this to us and allow such ramped fraud and abuse of the systems in government? Think about it.
