At the end of the day, all activity by gov't turns out bad. Any idea to spend money or make a rule almost always has negative consequences.
So our best hope is inactivity.
Wonder if some candidate could run on the platform of "I won't do anything and you'll be better off as a result"?
The idea that the president or congress or any gov't figure can positively impact my life is almost laughable to me.
I kinda wish someone famous would run a "Don't Vote" campaign (a la MTV's Rock the Vote). Seriously, who votes for the Dem and Republican candidates? Time and again the choices are bad and I really think they only reason these guys get any votes is the media guilts people into believing it's their civic duty to vote.
