10. The GOP always said the gov't should be more like private business

If you look they have done it. Sold stuff based not on it's basic merit but based on hype and Frank Luntz marketing techniques.

Just as many businesses have tons of part time employees instead of a fewer number of full time employees so they don't have to pay the benefits. The GOP is doing this by using the guard so heavily in Iraq.

Instead of providing a pension they are pushing their own version of the 401K.

Then there's Blackwell and Halliburton and all this contracting out.

The only problem is that's may be the way to do stuff the cheapest but in the long run it is bound to wind up ruining our country.
