Of, by, and for the people.

Government is supposed to be for the people.

It is supposed to be conducted in the best interests of the people.

Is it not in the peoples' best interests if government is efficient
and effective? And it that too much too expect?

They have had after all, hundreds of years to work out the bugs.

Would it not be in the people's best interests if politicians and public servants put in eight solid hours of competent work everyday? honestly and transparently accountable to meaningful standards of conduct and competence?

Government is not now for the people, because it is neither
by the people, or really of the people.

For as long as the people are willing to not be told the truth
about the spending of their power and resources,
that is the way it will remain.

Having control over power and resources that belong fundamentally to the people, begins with the people knowing the truth about how they are being used.
