It’s obvious that there are many people out there who hate “government,” especially the federal government, with a passion. As Americans, we pride ourselves on rugged individualism. The pioneer spirit and as captains of our own destiny. Many government detractors cite government inefficiency as their primary reason for their disdain.
No, government doesn’t bat 1.000. But then some major league hitters are paid $10 million a year and only hit .250. Major league pitching might have something to do with that. Human nature, political fights for power and complex problems might have something to do with government’s batting average.
Speaking of human nature, we live in a state with a football coach who has averaged 10.7 wins a year in the past seven seasons and against some pretty tough competition. Still, Coach Les Miles has his detractors. Heck, the Israelites were complaining to Moses within days of being led out of slavery from the Egyptians.
Government is people, so don’t be so human when it falls short.
