They don't create law, they just repeal and obstruct those laws to their benefit. Consider this excerpt from the linked article: What struck me, almost as an aside, is how successful this can be as a modus-operandi - but not for actual Government - which is charged with upholding, amending, and updating the law. How I missed this for so long is a perplexing thing, as is the reality it leaves me with...that we are left with (at least) half the Government that knows how to successfully market themselves, but can't govern. Am I off-base here? I'm home sick with the Flu - so I could certainly be - but it just seems so obvious. So then the question is "where from here"? Opinions?
