    Of course you should believe them. Our Government has been in effect for over 200 years and is still the envy of most of the world. Is it perfect? Hardly
    But the US has risen from a country of poor dirt farmers to the richest and most powerful in history. You can whine and call them all crooks and liars but the US could not have risen to its existing place in the world without a highly functional government

    You laugh? Laugh at what?

    That the US Government is the envy of the world?
    That the US is the richest and most powerful nation in history?
    That we could not have achieved this without our existing government?

    Willow laughs simply because willow is an idiot, unable to comprehend anything more significant than the simplest of concrete issues. That's why I made up the silly poem for willow -- the words perfectly reflect how poorly willow's brain works.

    We should believe them because they are the kindest bravest warmest human beings I have ever known. And they always tell the truth and put the interests of the people over their own personal agendas.

    I am Chris Matthews and I approve this message.

    If any of us gets to the point where we absolutely cannot believe our government...and we simultaneously do NOT immediately become part of the armed resistance, then we are cowardly pussies.

    That is what makes our country great

    Our founding fathers understood the corruptness of absolute power. That is why they insisted on freedom of speech, that is why they insisted on freedom of the press, that is why they included checks and balances.

    Do politicians lie? Of course they do
    What happens when they lie? The press swarms over them reporting the details and drives them from office

    Is our system of government perfect?

    No......but it is the best system of goernment ever created

    at the irony.. you say we should believe them in the wh, when one lie right after another has been told. you cannot watch fox news cause "they lie" but you voted for the biggest liar in history, it just struck me as funny. Kerry ON.
