So you choose to continue with this foolishness.
You are saying that ALL GOVERNMENT WORKERS are "government dependants" despite the fact that they are ENGAGING IN TRADE with the government? (Their labor and skill for a salary)?
Listen, YOU are the one with the deep aversion to government. Not me. It's just very curious how your aversion stops just on the other side of you getting a check from them. You know you actually display a traditional conservative approach here. Bush talks about wanting smaller government - but then grows it in strategic areas so as to pad his pockets. You have this aversion to the government being a solution to anyone yet suppressed your feelings just long enough to get a paycheck from them.
Either the government is an appropriate part of the human solution or not CF. Which is it? How could someone with the feelings you have about the institution of government feel comfortable enough to seek employment there? It just doesn't make sense - unless like many - self-interest is really what drives your decisions. If so - that's cool. Just don't try to front that you have these well thought out political principles, when in reality you don't.
