  • I think the government is there to make us think we have a say in anything that goes on but in reality they'll do what they want regardless of the polls and protests.
    The government is a pacifier.

  • I think the government is for itself and we are irrelevant. It has become a consuming machine - it's consumes resources and spits out nothing of value anymore.

  • I am a white, christian, middle class female. I am the wrong race, religion, and economic class for the government to be FOR me. It would only be worse if I were a male.

  • I believe they are for themselves. I dont think they really care what We think. Whatever decision that they make, its because they want to not because we opinioned it.....

  • I like to believe that most govt officials begin their careers with the hopes of making the country a better place for the people...But I then assume, that for some, greed takes over when they obtain that power. So ultimately, I think the Constitution is for me, but a large group of folks in office are for themselves.
