    This ought to be interesting... do you now and in foreseeable future trust the government to always do the right thing, always be working for the people, and never get too large or out of control, to never be considered oppressive and/or tyrannical?

    The answers will be simple, yes, no or undecided.

    This is a trick question, right? With an ass hat like Owe Bama in office, how can a reasonable person trust the current administration? Everything the government puts their finger on gets fucked up out of control.

    What idiot would say yes to that?

    Even the crafters of our Constitution didn't trust government or they wouldn't have built in checks and balances, the 3 branches of government and an independent court system to keep it in line.

    Been pretty consistent in that respect pard. The kenyan is just the worst thing we've seen so far.

    Government is supposed to be held accountable to the people here. But how does that ever happen in a "representative" democracy?

    Obviously they also didn't feel the checks and balances would be enough, hence the Second Amendment.

    Thank you. You helped make that point.

    I don't know how anyone can hardly say now, that our government works for us instead of us for them.

    How long does the average person work each year JUST TO PAY THE GOVERNMENT?

    Is that the government working for us?

    But you buy "defense" and "health care" from the government with your tax dollars.
