2. By design, that is not a bug, it's a feature

Republicans have become libertarians. They do not want government to work so when they are in power, they try to ensure that it will not work whether they are in control or someone else is. Just look back to Republican obstructionism while President Obama was in office!

3. Exactly. The pukes think all federal departments should be run like businesses.

They don't believe that governement exists to help average American citizens, but only to assist large corporations and wealthy people.

4. When they see a problem in the US

It's not how do we fix this... It is how do we profit over this.

5. Why would you expect government run

by the party that wants to make government so small you could drown it in the bathtub - to work?

7. Ironically, Republican government is not small at all if you

are a big corporation or a wealthy person. Just if you are in the other 99% and lost your income because of Covid19. Then it's so small you can't find it. It disappeared.

10. They don't want small government.

They say it but the size of government is irrelevant to them. The function of government is important. They want government large enough to enforce American Hegemony abroad and social and economic policies domestically. They have no problem growing the military as large as it needs to be. They have no problem growing police forces. They have no problem with spy programs and growing programs to regulate the behaviors of people they find "unacceptable".

Republican government doesn't work because their policies favor the wealthy and try to impose a hierarchy that does not promote free and equitable society. They use fear, anger, and resentment to motivate people to support their policies.
