'• . But let's \vait a minute before we get too critical—WE.are "the government," you: know. : The term doesn't mean just the man we know down -at/the court .house or the '"little men up in- Washington." : : They are carrying on the func- 'tions of government, 'it' is true. But they were put "there by US, the job they are doing is for US, and if WE don't like the way they a?e doing it; their fate is in our hdnds. , If we don't think they are capable, '.then it's up' to us to choose someone else .we think Js better 'qualified.
