There are may misinformed people who don't do real fact checking or if any is done its via MSN, CNN, ABC, NBC, Wiki, Huffington etc. and all are bias to either red or blue. I think Democrats will have to streamline government, trim fat, stop featherbedding and generally remake state and local government into something leaner and meaner because I don’t think they have a choice. Republicans will want to fix this because bad government is big government and takes a terrible toll on the economy (cumbersome procedures, bad decisions, a large and expensive staff). But smart proponents of a strong federal government will also want to change this status quo because the state, as presently constituted, is simply not able to take on all the missions they would like to see addressed. Just as we once saw competing Republican and Democratic versions of Progressive politics, so going forward we will see competing Republican and Democratic versions of post-blue politics. I can only hope through these partisan battles, the government will be remade and the days of the bureaucratic administrative state, that has dominated American life, will be transformed.
