John Carmack on Tomorrow’s Election

id Software’s John Carmack didn’t start voting until after he got involved in Armadillo Aerospace and could directly see how things get done.

My core thesis is that the federal government delivers very poor value for the resources it consumes, and that society as a whole would be better off with a government that was less ambitious.  This is not to say that it doesn’t provide many valuable and even critical services, but that the cost of having the government provide them is much higher than you would tolerate from a company or individual you chose to do business with.  For almost every task, it is a poor tool.
