I’ll be very brief.
It has become impossible to watch the news or read a paper without being made aware of one or more new examples of abject governmental ineptitude, malfeasance and/or outright corruption. Recent examples include, but are not limited to, stifling rules of engagement placed on our military, failure to make any real effort to vet the terrorists in San Bernardino, Hillary using her personal server and exposing secret communications to interception, IRS corruption/targeting political enemies, Benghazi - the list is literally endless.
Malfeasance/incompetence/corruption/stupidity will continue until and unless the people involved are held to account - be they employees or bureaucrats, department heads or politicians.
IMHO - our government is broken largely because there is no accountability and no subsequent personal cost to those individuals responsible.
Said another way, there are a LOT of SOBs that need to be fired, demoted and or prosecuted. Until that happens no real change is possible and the bigger government gets the more impossible it becomes.
