I have long said that most Americans have NO idea how the government works….most are too busy bitching and moaning about the other side to give a crap….the reult of this ignorance is the stupidity that inhabits the halls of government….
My friend and regular visitor to IST from Life Between 0 and 1 | w1nt3l.com has posted an excellent look at the legislative branch of our withering government.
I press it below for everyone to read and hopefully will find a new understanding of how things work…..
So few Americans understand, let alone even know, the lengthy and bureaucratic process that is followed attempting to make laws in the United States. Given the complicated process this is, I’ll do my best to make it understandable, meaning in some cases parts of the process may be simplified for the sake of sanity. I’m not an expert and there are thousands of resources on this 240 year old process.
After having spent a 2 weeks on this post, I can honestly say that I would *not* want to go into public service as a politician. It definitely takes a certain type of person to work with this kind of bureaucracy, one that has endured the test of time up to this point and one that I hope continues.
