This recent CNN story talked about 86% of respondents said government was broken... that can't be surprising - the words government and bureaucracy have become synonymous with slow in our culture - BUT, what I found promising is that 81% thought it could be fixed. I thought that number would be much lower.
Take this all with the gigantic grain of salt you have to take all CNN and USAToday polls - but I thought I would link to the story here and ask the following questions for discussion:
If 81% of the people think it can be fixed - of the 3 P's - who will have the biggest impact on fixing it? - Politicians, Policy Makers, or Public Servants (the life long people who run the offices in the executive branch) They all play a role, but who has the most potential to make a difference?
If you are a 5% who thinks we are beyond repair... What next? Hobble along as far as we can muster, or wait for a catastrophic collapse to begin again?
