I don't think you're really gonna get anyone to say that we fully trust our government
. I don't, and you know I'm a Bush supporter. I don't
hate our government, or want a revolution or anything like that, but they are just people. I trust them enough to feel safe, plus they really don't
have all that much power. The way our system is set up, there are so many people in congress, most just regular people. Besides, they follow the
same rules we do. So if they decided to pass a law that said everyone must wear red every day, they would have to do so themselves. That's why we
have different branches, checks and balances. If one side gets out of control, the other side will be there to put them back in place.
And I'm sorry, I don't believe that kind of thing where they're secretly testing chemicals on us. Something like that would surely leak out. I
know I'm gonna get alot of crap for saying this, but that's actually one of the reasons I'm conservative. Conservatives (Or at least what they're
supposed to stand for) want less government activity in our lives. The Patriot act was more of a liberal thing to do. Conservatives want to do
things for themselves, that means the government doesn't help or hurt. Well, there's my two cents..
