Overhaul and remodel or tear down and rebuild

Touching up the colors

In time all things need attention. We know and accept this fact without argument. So why is it so difficult to get consensus with the notion that our government just might need a touch up, or a face lift, or maybe an overhaul? Tax reform, why not? Immigration, sure. Campaign finances, you bet! Foreign policies, naturally. Defense spending, it couldn’t hurt. Infrastructure, I’m all for that. Education, could use some help. Term limits, let’s do it. Gun control, I think we know the answer to that one.

If we don’t get serious about addressing these problems-and a lot more-the whole thing will come crashing down from dry rot and neglect.  We only have ourselves to blame. That’s just my opinion.
