32. Don't trust your government to people...
who hate the government.

That's the simple explanation to red staters that don't know who they supported in the last two elections, and are seeing the disastrous results in New Orleans.

Our Republican leaders think that "government is the problem, not the solution", according to their patron Saint, Ronald Reagan. These politicos appoint their political supporters to high positions in FEMA, people with no experience in emergency management whatsoever. It's not surprising they botched this Hurricane.

Wait to see how badly they handle the next national emergency, if we are stupid enough to continue to elect people as our leaders, that don't believe the government is there to serve the people.
