They allow more of our liberty to be taken away, usually in the name of "protecting the children". They allow more of our money to be stolen from us by government in the name of "being compassionate".
They allow the government to infringe on more and more of our rights in the name of "fighting terror", yet they continue to allow the jackasses in DC to leave our borders wide open. Yea, very effective "war" strategy there, leave your front door wide open.

I don't know how things degraded to this point, maybe its the natural entropy of the universe which leads people down this path. We are the result of 4 billion years of evolution we are the most advanced life on this planet. The concept of a utopian society exists. Just because its never been sucessfull doesnt mean we should stop trying.

Okay Vance. Since you have it all figured out maybe you can help me. I had a good job with health insurance but I got sick. I went to the doctors for treatment (which was a joke) then insurance company refused to pay , calling it pre existing condition(endometrisis). $12,000 bill I'm stuck with now. Kept working and developed carpal tunnel, insurance company refused to pay said it could never be caused by my repetitive motion job. Appealed and denied then fired. Applied for disability and was denied because my symptoms not severe enough (HA). Applied for food stamps but since I was staying with family member I was denied, but case worker said if I lived in my car I would be approved. I worked for 20 years from age 15 to 36. I paid all my taxes. This is what this country has become. It no longer matters if you work hard and are honest. The only ones who are doing good in this country are the corrupt corporations who lie, steal and cheat their workers and consumers.
