What do you think? Should it bear full responsibility as deserving of the consequences? Or does the private sector step in and say "I'll handle this, bub" and leave the government on "probation" for not being able to do the job well? Or does the implied authority depend on the situation?
with Santorum in the White House immoral acts like Sandy Hook and the Aurora Massacre would not have happened. -Bored troll looking to tango

This isn't a hypothetical, you have cute story you are planning on dropping when someone answers the wrong way. Why don't you save everybody the time and just post the story now.

idk about in general, but the US government sure has an obligation to fix (i.e. find and remove) every single bit of unexploded ordinance they dropped on southeast asia during the vietnam war
Is there much left to enumerate? What won't idle, well-fed, unfeeling people invent?

The government *IS* WE, THE PEOPLE. If the government is creating "problems," then WE, THE PEOPLE, act by either petitioning or by changing government via the voting booth.

WE, THE PEOPLE, are responsible for fixing "problems" started by government.
