How licensing agencies contribute to the functioning of our democracy

“The functioning of our democracy” – sounds kind of hokey, right?  It’s not.  Our country was founded on an experiment in self-governing, as an alternative form of ruling that was more likely to preserve the liberty of its citizens.

There are obvious supports for this experiment in our elections, branches of government and the like.  Deep under those visible supports lies a vast bureaucratic machine that executes our democratic will.  In some cases, the execution falls short of public expectations.  In this age of deep divisions, how are we to hold on to our belief in government, if government struggles to function at times?

And government agencies, supported by these systems, contribute to the functioning of our democracy, as they efficiently carry out their missions.
