How can you say things aren’t broken?

The Arizona Republic is holding their big virtual “Town Hall” today at 11:30 to discuss what is wrong with Arizona and how it could be fixed.  There is a lot of talk lately about the different was Arizona is “broken” and ways these problems could be solved, some of which I agree with and others not so much.

What is interesting though, is that there are actual people out there who think that the system isn’t broken and things are working just fine.  One would think that the consistently low performance ratings for the legislature would be an indicator, but hey, who cares? 

Apparently, the system is fine as is, because we elected the people we did, and so it’s our own fault.  Nah, it doesn’t matter that no one can come to an agreement on a budget or whether to cut or spend, but hey, no reforms are needed.

Also, in case you are wondering, the people who are thinking of the reforms aren’t conservative enough.  We need to keep the right to vote!  Yeah, all offices should be voted on, except Lieutenant Governor, we don’t need that.  It’s important that we vote on mine inspector, but it would be a waste to vote on someone who would take over for the Governor.  We should get rid of the Vice President’s office while we’re at it!

Let’s face it, the people who want to gut government are fine with the way things are now because the more inefficient the system is, the more people want to get rid of it.  It’s like taking a corporation down from the inside.

    Starve the beast, baby!

    So why is it that the so-called sane Republicans elect the crazies as their leaders in the AZ legislature? Is it the intimidation factor? Is it some sort of good cop/bad cop game? Inquiring minds want to know.
