    So, is the US government too big, what say you?
    Yes, but not for the reasons stated by many here.
    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.

    Sure. It's too big to sustain itself, and still growing. The more bureaus, government employees, and programs that are created and installed, the more money they need to generate in order to keep operating. Decisions have to made on where funds need to go, where to take from, and where to just cut entirely. The size and number of bureaus and committees makes efficient operation and prioritization of the nation's needs in a timely order impossible, and the American People will only take so much of funding this crap before the bad things happening now begin to get a lot worse.

    But, yes, in my opinion, we do have a propaganda machine...and things can be much better, but your CPs ...well, they are off the wall male bovine feces.
    That is precisely the argument that the critiques of Nazi Germany received by those with Germany that well deluged with the lies of the 3rd Reich

    Remember, there were 3 major pillars of fascism to emerge from the 20th century

    Bolshevism, Nazism and Corporatism

    And the Corpocratic mist that engulfs your cerebral cortex at the moment is a real beauty

    You have my eternal empathy - but there are many among you that have not seccumbed to the Corporate excrement and its foul stench - take guidance from them, your only hope now

    I voted Yes. Individuals should be responsible for themselves, and Government should be there solely to Protect the Rights and Liberty of the Individual.

    Only the Strong Survive and Seven Billion is WAY TOO MANY.

    If the weak/poor (which I was, raised in a (split) family WAYYYY below the poverty line) cannot find a way to sustain themselves, and then to PROSPER, then they die off as Earth intended.

    I believe in Equal Opportunity which is granted by Individual (NOT GROUP) Rights. The Government should protect these, and otherwise, let things be.
