I want to know when we stopped supporting the government here in the USA.
I know it hasn't always been like this.

Well, the USA was built on the rejection of European imperialism, so it was from conception antigovernment. When the european elites got control back of the US, with the setup of the FED system, the American intelectual community started it's trek against big government, because that's what the system does, it grows government over the people. The people themselves began to hate the government as they realised what it was. There were various factors that brought more and more people into the antigovernment (federal) camp, like WWI and WWII, Vietnam, Kennedy Assassination, Martin Luther King Assassination, 911, Iraq, and quite a few more events, as well as millions of localized abuses, lies and manipulations that slowly crept up into the group mind.
The sad thing about this situation is that in part this was planned, because they do want to destroy the constitution of the USA, so while hating the current government is understandable, if this hate turns into a situation where the constitution is destroyed, then the american people have gone backwards. The world elite want a US under tyrannical control, and they will use the people's hate of government to spark the civil unrest they need to achieve it.
It's far more effective to ignore government than to harbour ill will towards it, imho. It's a shapeshifter, it will always adapt to the input given to it. But if left without input it collapses under the weight of it's own inequity.
