They want to work on our dime.
They want to impose regulations on us.
The federal government should not be allowed to impose drug testing rules on private businesses, but government isn't a private business.
Start with the President, work your way down.
At first I thought, “yes, they should be drug tested” then gave thought to what I believe some of the main problems we have today in the United States: Government larger then it has to be and over population. Define government employee. Could that be a mail man, or a lawyer? Yes, people should not preform activities that involve the risk of life or death over others impaired on drugs. Look at your daily activities though, risk is involved every time to drive to work or eat food. Should we regulate every activity of every human being? I know this is a touchy subject, but I would propose some form of population control. Not by killing anyone already alive, but by having an individual understand the risks of over population in the area they live, and choosing weather or not to have a child. In this way you wouldn’t keep treating symptoms of modern life, but create the conditions in which you can hope for a cure.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Over population and good intentions are two conditions that could wipe out every man woman and child on Earth. That is a big risk, understanding it and letting others see that risk may lead to solutions, instead of mistakes.
