Discussion Thread: Government Efficacy

How are you feeling about your government's ability to solve problems in a meaningful way for the people of your country right now? Are you hopeful? Are you cynical? Do you trust local government more than federal/state government? If you're feeling low on enthusiasm for governmental efficacy right now, are you irreparably jaded, or do you still have some optimism that, with the right people in leadership roles, government can make a positive difference in people's lives? Is there anything you think your government is doing especially well or especially poorly? What's the biggest barrier against government efficacy? Money in politics? Corporate influence? State religion? Election fraud?

All of these things, and/or whatever else you want to talk about regarding how hopeful or cynical you're feeling about your government right now.
