Who came up with all of these bad gov’t ideas?

Cyrus Massoumi


Do you have faith in the people running this nation?  When answering that question, most people would bash either the Democrats or the Republicans, but my question goes much deeper than that.  Power is constantly shifting back and forth between the two major political parties, and it seems like things don’t really change no matter who is in power.  What I am asking is if you have faith in the entire system.  Do you have faith in the U.S. government, the Federal Reserve, the state governments, the local governments, our public schools and our financial system?  Do you believe that the people that are running things in this country are doing a good job?  When you look at the results, it is hard to argue that those in power are making good decisions.  In fact, this country is caught in such a downward spiral that it would be easy to argue that most of our politicians should immediately resign in disgrace.  Our leaders just keep coming up with one bad idea after another.  Sometimes it almost seems as though it would be better for our leaders to do absolutely nothing at all because every time they try to do something they only make things worse.

Posted below are a few dozens questions that reveal the stupidity of the people running this nation.  The truth is that the list below could be much, much longer.  If the founders of this nation could see us now they would be absolutely disgusted with us.

As you read the following list of questions, try to think about what the answers might be….
