I think it's ridiculous,there is a righteous side or at least a lesser of 2 evils yet they prove them selves weak time and time again by letting the President make unconstitutional decisions and and not sticking up for what is just!
They own the land under your feet and everything you 'own' is actually a lease. There officers have standard issue weapons but you need a licence to carry one. They take your money because you did not put money in a ticket machine, because you were going to fast, because you downloaded something, because you walked across the street and they will throw you in a cell for if your girlfriend is under the 'age of consent, if you bear arms and don't have a licence, if you hold myriad substances, if you talk to the wrong person about sex, and in my home town they will shoot you if you are naked and on fire with no weapon. Minimum mandatory sentencing puts decent people behind bars for a very long time regardless of mitigating issues or circumstance. This is not a justice system it is a legal system and it oppresses and effects everyone's life. I'm furious that they claim they own the land, they own the planet then I guess I have to work so what are we? slaves. I think the government treats it's SLAVES kinda well. You don't make the law on your 'own' land it is not really your land; it's where the overseer finds his workers.
"Government should do for people only what they cannot do better for themselves, and no more." -Abraham Lincoln That quote sums up what I think the government should be like but the one we have now certainly isn't this way.
