1. the government is the reason why you live so comfortably. So when you COMPLAIN about them you are not observing reality.
2. WHo needs to be held acountable for WHAT? How are BUsh or clinton or any of their cabinet members at fault for anything? no one can explain this coz it makes no sense.
THink about you...YOU HAVE A BUSINESS. You are safe. you go to sleep in a cozy bed. you get to work.
3. you are saying that you are not appreciating what they are doing.
I think that people, like you, forget that planet earth is not a UTOPIA....meaning that there is lots of crazy things out there.. the government DOES protect you and your loved ones from these crazy things.
and when you dont show your appreciation for them..it bothers me.
its not about republic or democrat or what not..its about showing respect.
coz those people up there WORKED hard to get up there.
that is WHY THEY are up there.
If you would read my posts in this thread you would realise that I am by no means anti-government. I by no means think that all government is bad. I can say that with the occupation I have I am very sought after in many other countries. I have full respect for law enforcement and the military. I protect my family first and foremost though. They only get a chance if they can make it to the problem before my involment becomes nessary. I do show respect for the government when it isn't being corrupt. So what your saying is be a sheeple and don't stand up for the injustices that are being commited on the american people on a daily basis just to line an already rich persons pocket? To say that they worked hard to get there is laughable at best, it is not honest hard work that gets you involved in politics otherwise there would be more minorities and low income people in congress.
