Response to Well, uh...

 

Ah, the US ranks where in the world in literacy and test scores? And you want to say that the government runs things more efficiently than private organizations?

Do you even want to talk about the percentage of money that the US pays in taxes? Not "just" federal taxes, but taxes on roads, taxes on cigarettes, taxes on "gifts", bonuses, capital gains, social security, gasoline, airline travel, food, etc, and talk about how things aren't "outrageously expensive"?

How about the fact that the US governemnt LOST over $300 million dollars last year. LOST, as in "have NO idea where it went to". And you want to sit here and talk about how much better the government is at running things??? LOL!!

If you want LESS bureaucracy and more WORK done then you hire a private business because businesses sole job is to MAKE money, not spend it like the government does.
