    Is the US government too big?

    I know the US government is "too big to fail" but that's not what this thread is about.

    So, is the US government too big, what say you?

    I dont see the point of the actual question.

    The US doesnt have a government

    The US is a corporately run fascist state

    Perhaps youre confusing the circus full of clowns and corporate puppets in Washington with a genuinely voted in democratic structure that represents the wishes of the people?

    Yes ladiea and gentlemen that would explain it

    Of course you're entirely correct

    On the other hand, the truth can never be repeated enough

    It seems that you tolerate lies being repeated by your corporately run media and government, but get all squirmish and uncomfortable when the truth is aired in public

    I can understand that - its difficult, I realise that, but you must muster up enough personal courage and character integrity to face up to the moral monster that your Corpocracy has turned into

    This is not the time to run away or bend over in front of the Corporate Tyrrant to be spiritually de-rimmed

    I'd say we spend too much on the pentagon. there are other areas we could cut, and some we could expand. it's a little more complex than "too big."

    Exactly. Look at all the corporate appointed heads of departments getting the laws they want passed.

    ... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.

    They even managed to achieve the seamingly impossible verdict handed down by the US Supreme Court in 2010 - Now a Corporation is legally and morally a PERSON.

    Then again the Corporate Tyranny controls everything, the state, the financial systems, the mass media and the Judicial system - everything. The USA is currently the most effective fascist state seen in Human History - and its armed - with very BIG GUNS

    Ironically, the Corporate PERSON entity (whatever that means) will depend upon the US constitution and Bill of rights to protect its "rights" - instruments which are currently impotent and have been suspended in the USA by various Patriot Acts and the NDAA etc.,

    nothing has changed

    the freedom you believe you have now is an illusion

    There has NEVER been a democracy in the USA

    THe current Corpocracy Rules like a tyrannical fascist monster - there can only be ONE way out of this mess

    You know what to do

    No, the government should be made more efficient, but be larger, nationalization of the financial and energy industry would be my first step.
