Hasn't the government been destructive long enough?

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it…"

Thomas Jefferson



Hmmm...time to abolish it....?

  • "Its not the government I have issue with. It is the corporations that run the government that need to go. It is corporate personhood and artificial aristocracies, that are destroying this Nation and holding us back from progress"


     If there are corporations that are running the government, then they have to be doing it through the politicians. The politicians would be allowing it, cause they want to be voted back in. So again it is back to the government, because the politicians are weak and all they care about is power and how to get more of it.  Rather it be Bush or Obama, or Bush Sr. or Clinton.  They ALL CATER to special interest groups.!!!!!

  • Life, liberty and the persuit of happiness. Hmm, why don't you ask all the gay couples who can't get married If they are able to pursue their happiness? What about the small business owners faced with firing their team to pay for congressional pork?

  • No! I think it needs a major overhaul however, it is the only govt with checks and balances. It's the greed and lack of morales that is taking over the country. Too bad a lot of our govt officials are the leaders of greed and no morality.
