Our government is broken.

It is a pathetic mess.

It needs to be fixed.

The IRS and most of our government agencies are understaffed and underfunded, because Republicans want to drown the government and Democrats don't know or don't care to stop them. Want to weaken an already weak thing? attack it. Republicans work for the government but want to kill it. They literally want to sink the ship they are on. The thing with hypocrites is, they are only hypocritical if they have standards to begin with. As we have learned Republicans have no standards. None. Attacking them as hypocrites is a waste of an attack.

Faith is not the key to being a good person. Faith is the key to obeying, and behaving a certain way
.

Now we on the Democratic side like to think we have standards. We like to think we have morals and we like to think we stand for something, right?  Yes, we do. But what do we stand for? I still haven't figured that out, this being a big tent and all. We have a lot of voices competing and as much as some folks like to throw around that reality based community stuff we are not a reality based community. Yeah I said it. We are not.

We are currently fighting over the degrees to which it is okay for an elected leader to use a government agency to go after a political opponent. We are also arguing about the press and if it is okay to toss one under the chin of the media every now and then to make a point about leaking stuff.

Now I ask you good citizens of Dailykos where do we stand on fucking with the press in order to send a message? Where do we stand on using a government agency as a political weapon? Are there different levels of shit we are willing to put up with?

Lastly, our government has one big problem right now, it does not function on a basic level. We have one side that is suicidal and the other side that has no idea how to deal with a suicidal party. The only thing they can agree on is that they want to get home on time and that they deserve a raise. I am at a loss for a solution to this mess and I am tired of the blame game.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
