    Alot of people on this board do alot of criticizing of our government. This is not a bad thing really, it's good that people care about government activities.

    Here's a question, what is your ideal government? how it works, who works it, etc. Put down your ideas and stuff. Or don't, it's a free country!

    My personal opinion is that the system of government in the U.S. is the absolute worst system in the world - except for every other system in the world.

    The only thing I would tweak is that I believe it is slightly too hard to ammend our constitution. I don't want the constitution to be subject to fickle whims, but I think it is just a bit too difficult right now.

    Oh - and campaign finance reform.

    Yeah, it's messy sometimes and it certainly isn't perfect, but (imho) it's head and shoulders above anything else I see going on out there

    The original republic sans the three-fifths compromise.

    Even though not perfect (perfection cannot ever be an option), still worlds better than the mob rule America has descended into today.

    A government that defends the nation and defends the constitution. A government for the people and by the people.

    It may not be perfect, but in a mere 300 years, we have become the strongest. most prosperous, most generous AND most envied nation in the world.

    In thousands of years, other nations couldnt come close.

    Such is why I laughed at the fact that "change" was the mantra of the winner.
