When you set up a country as beautifully as America was set up, the down side is that you empower a lot of incompetents. You enable them. They come to infest a situation that they never could have created themselves.
They then proceed to run it into the ground. That's what has happened to America.
I did see the recent poll indicating that 30% of all Americans trust the government. (Not surprisingly, trust was higher among women, the young, and racial minorities.) I can agree with your point about government creating it's opposition, but after it's dismantled what replaces it? I'm a freedom, smaller federal government guy, but what will the majority choose? I'd rather not see Mrs. Clinton or Mrs. Obama in the White House. That's my worry.
US government will very soon give ALL Americans reason to unite.......against it.
Just wait 2 more years. You'll see.
