Watching the movie "Swing Vote" last weekend hit a nerve for me. Especially in light of the current campaign marathon we are enduring. Everybody wants to bring their own issues to the party and place them on the table of the federal government. What is our federal government for? The solutions to all problems? I hope not. The more issues we throw at the government to solve, the less effective and more in debt our government becomes. From being unable to solve certain specific issues, our government will become a failure in everything.
