The government is very inefficient. If the money is not spent by the next fiscal year end the unit "if let's say the military" will get less money next year so they just spend it all so they are rewarded for waste. I am experienced in how some parts of government run. This is why I don't understand why government does not seem to want to become more efficient.
Companies are run to create a profit so they cut out the cancerous inefficient parts and reward productivity why can't we create a productive government.
This is just a thought don't you wonder why there are more cops out giving tickets when the city is losing money jails and tickets are revenue so lock up more people make more money?

I accept this debate challenge.
To answer some of your points, running a successful Corporation is very different from running a country. It's not even in the same ballpark. The main thing you have to worry about in running a company is finances and PR(public relations), whereas in a country like America you have to worry about Finances, PR, international affairs, Health Care, I could go on and on. Also no, throwing more people in jail WILL NOT fix out financial problems

Looking forward to your arguments. Thank you.

I dont know if you know this but walmart also has public affairs, international affairs, health care and other issues just the same as running a country. oh my last statement about locking people up was not about what we should do its about what is already being done.

Walmart has a little over 2 million employees*. 1.6 of them are suing Walmart AS WE SPEAK. You ask that we put these people in charge of our government? And this is just a run of the mill class-action lawsuit! Oh no sir! This is the biggest lawsuit in the history of the U.S**. It is estimated that the suit could cost WalMart billions. And you sit there and INSIST that we put these people, this corporation in charge?! And with No evidence or reasons as why? No arguments. If WalMart were to run the government, they would also run the courts. SO tell me, my good sir, how then would these 1.6 million women GET THE JUSTICE THEY DESERVE?! You have no answer.....for there is no answer. You have yet to present to me a single solid argument towards your point and also a single shred of evidence, that you have any idea of what you're talking about. I await your reply. Good night and GOOD LUCK
