The Republicans take the reins of government, drag it to it's knees, rob it of money, and make a supreme mess of it...and then say: "See, I told you government is no good."
But they can't be trusted with business either.
I personally think that much of their problem is egocentrism. Greed, bragging, and so on. Many Democrats are involved in ego-transcendence. Governments work better when they are altruistic.
