    Its not govt that sucks its the rich and the corporations that have corrputed our govt for personal gain
    I won't disagree at all that money and lobbying does not serve us well, but by singling out capitalism you imply that other less capitalistic countries are somehow better and/or more pure, and that I reject completely.
    If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
    "But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.

    I'll go ahead and give my take on why government, and why it isn't effective, or efficient as it could be in 5 words I've heard more and more frequently from people who get their salaries paid by tax dollars: "Good enough for government work". They'll get paid the same either way, so why should they give a ****?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
