    Strange how a man with an agenda can complain about other people for not reason other than they have an agenda.

    America wouldn't have become a superpower as successful as we have been without its government. There's only so much a population can do without the cohesive(and oftentimes unnecessarily bloated) administrative abilities of a government. Government makes utilization of its civilian base. The civilian base is what makes the Government what it is, in our type of Government. Therefore it's not only government to blame and to benefit.

    How powerful do you think we would have been in the world stage with an Anarchy?

    It throws Washington Adams, Jefferson, Madison, et. al. in the trash to adhere to the belief government is "bad". All the current candidates for the Presidency have held office, have they not?

    Obama and Quantum Windbag suffer from the same delusion.

    They don't understand the partnership between individuals and government.

    Ronald Reagan was in GOVERNMENT for over quarter of a century.

    The Bush family has been in government for generations.

    FDR's government program rescued Ronald Reagan's father during the depression. This is why Ronnie campaigned for Truman.

    Government didn't build the Hoover Dam, defeat the Nazis, or put a man on the moon, nor did the private sector - these things came from a partnership.




    "America is its best when government, corporations, and individuals work together." -Dwight Eisenhower.

    Partnerships only exist when both sides have guns.

    Strangely we agree.

    When Reagan used the War on Drugs to triple our investment in law enforcement and repressive state power, I cringed.

    When Clinton vowed to put 1 million more cops on the streets, I cringed because I knew that the individual's power was being diminished in relation to the government.

    When Bush used the war on terror to increase state surveillance of free individuals, I cringed.

    Each president makes the state more powerful and more invasive.

    The Dum answer to failures of gov't programs is more gov't programs.

    How has that worked out for us?
