Well, if the government quit stopping being turds, and not add to the 16 trillion debt, they'd be able to pay workers. Also, what's up with all of these government agencies? Why do we have so many? Doesn't it complicate things more? Everyone must be dumb in the government if they have to have an agency for everything.
The people cannot do anything peacefully to the government unless they are rich. If they could do anything about the NSA, they'd have to do it violently but they can't with all of the weapons, bombs, drones, air planes, & nuclear war heads that they have. They don't just have guns. Your vote doesn't count ever. Over 50% of people don't vote either. The money counts. Not your vote.
I don't respect the drug war. Also, it's hard to respect a country that has the most arrests compared to any other countries. Police do work for the government and the respect of government to many people is none.
