Out with the old

The Spokesman-Review

It is no surprise that people are upset with all levels of our government and their business-as-usual and good-old-boy mentality. Nowhere have we seen them cut back on the building of fancy new buildings with the best furnishings that money can buy or the purchasing of new cars, SUVs and pickups for their ever-growing employee base.

There is not one government worker that produces a product beneficial to man. Why do we fund multiple agencies with their own infrastructures, buildings, cars, equipment doing the same job? For example, police, fire, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.

Why does each deputy have his own cruiser that sits idle 80 percent of the time? Why do we need to build a new jail when we could outsource our prisoners to South America?

No matter what you think of your elected representative or what party they say they belong to, they are just the same snake in a different skin. Tax and spend is their motto. If they could tax the air you breathe, they would. Please do not vote for any incumbent election day. We need fresh ideas and outside-the-box thinkers.
