    On what planet - in what parallel dimension - does our government ever manage to function along the same span of thought?

    Every few years they're swapped out and replenished - part of our nation's problem (ok - so I believe it's more than just a part) is that things keep changing and we can't decide what we are or what we want and need.

    We're like a gigantic nation sized pair of funky flip flops.

    Foes for sure. If you act against our Constitution, you should be locked up for life for treason. So that is almost all of our government.

    Hardly. The government is without a doubt a foe, but a document from the 1700s shouldn't be the basis for our country's values.

    I completely agree that it needs to be revised, but until that happens we have this one.

    That depends. Was 9/11 an inside job or otherwise a cover-up?

    I don't know what you mean by friend or foe but I think our country is one of the most moral country.

    I think our country bends over backwards not to hurt people but sometimes that is unavoidable.
