Can we not get some sort of provision inserted into the Constitution that is a no confidence purge and reset button? All senators and representatives kicked out and banned from holding federal position ever again. If we can't do it now I strongly encourage some mechanism like that to be added after the upcoming 3rd American Revolution. |
I see this happen at a micro level all the time, particularly in restaurants and schools/colleges. There is a pizza place down the street that was awesome when I was a kid because the people there had a great attitude, treated their customers promptly with courtesy and the store was always spotless clean. They always got your order right too! Over the course of 20 years the place has become rundown, it is always dirty, they constantly screw up your order in minor ways, leave you on hold for ages or don't even answer the phone even when 10 people are working in the store. The list goes on. None of the employees seem to give a **** and also don't seem to be afraid they will lose their job for lackluster performance. If you fire a few, yeah you might scare the others into working hard for a little while, but eventually they will settle back into the lackluster performance and drag the new employees down with them. But, if you fire them all, bring in a whole new staff and start them off well they settle into a pattern of higher performance for a much longer time because to them that is the way it has always been.
