I’m reminded, though, of a famous quote by Alexander Hamilton:“A government ill-executed, whatever may be the theory, in practice is poor government.” Our government has become so big, complex, and riddled with competing agendas that its performance - its ability to execute faithfully the law - is terribly compromised. As NYU Professor Paul Light points out, there are too many decision-makers, too many bases to touch, too many layers of management, too many managers in each layer, and too little accountability.
These are crucial matters to fix. Not only do Americans want to see better performance from their government, but federal executives - including the President - cannot achieve their policy objectives unless those under them are competent and high-performing. We have to rethink and transform how government does its business - not just on a one-shot basis, but constantly. www.dailytribune.net/opinion/time-to-fix-gove... www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/letters/2014/...
On Wednesday, the Arizona House approved a resolution, HCR 2027, calling for a Convention of States to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution to "impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of federal government officials."
Almost everyone knows Washington, D.C., is on a dangerous course. But few Americans know the people possess the power to make changes to the federal structure when Washington starts to abuse its authority. Article V of the Constitution authorizes the people — through their state legislatures — to call a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
The great state of Arizona has a leadership team in place to spearhead this movement. To get involved, visit conventionofstates.com
