    Ebola - Crimea - Benghazi - Obamacare - UN - Somali pirates - Immigration - Tax dollars - Oil - Welfare - Minimum wage - Iraq - Syria - Afganistan - ISIS - Affluenza - States rights - Gun control - Entitlements - Sharia Law.

    Pick one or add your own.  There are many more from which to choose.

      While some is malevolent (in the sense it benefits the politician more than anyone) most of it is incompetence.  Of both the politician AND the citizenry that demands it; it's what happens when the good of the individual, via controlling what others do, overrides the good of the state as a whole.

      How much control do you think we can have over all these issues and what can we afford to do about them?

    I struggle to see how all those issues come down to government workers.

    Somali pirates for example.  What is the link?
