WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Losing Faith In Government. “Actually, it’s not hard to understand why public faith in government is at rock bottom: People lose trust when the officials either ignore the public will, or, worse, do the opposite of what they promised voters they would do. President Obama, for example, promised a ‘net spending cut’ during the 2008 presidential campaign. He has instead delivered the biggest explosion in federal spending in American history, with a result that the annual federal deficit and the national debt are now at levels nobody envisioned even a few years ago.”
UPDATE: David Harsanyi: Lack of trust isn’t a bug, it’s a feature! Plus, a nice Star Wars reference.
