  •  I think the main problem in the US... (4+ / 0-)

    is that we have a relatively weak federal government and 50 different states with 50 different procedures for handling these things. 50 states with wildly different ideas about how these things should be done, and what the government should be able to do in the first place. Our diversity is, in this case, our greatest weakness.

    We have two and a half centuries worth of programs stacked on top of each other and a population conservative enough to block ANY change no matter how it might simplify things. We can't even go two months without getting within hours of shutting down the government, can't get sensible gun control passed, can't get reasonable debate on ANY issue... our system is tragically broken.

    "There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible." -Henry Ford
