Anyway, this is all off topic. My point was that the government needs to be limited. Once it goes beyond its enumerated powers, it poses a danger to all of us.


Is "government" the problem or is it the application or exercise of government that is the problem? Government is just people; the people in power - typically enacting laws and policies that sustain their position of power and privilege in society. So in reality, is your problem with the institution of government, or with those who have been in power and control of the government in this country since day one.


Of course government itself isn't the problem. I'm only saying, as stated above, that it needs to be limited to its legitimate duties- the most important of which is to protect the lives and rights of its citizens.

When the government is limited, it matters less who's in power. Why? Because they have less power, of course. They won't be able to make you subsidize all sorts of frivilous programs nor their own campaigns (do you realize that they make you pay for their campaigns whether you support them or not?)
