It's more the philosophy of,"Give the devil an inch and he'll take a mile."

If we let them get away with something like the NSA stuff, what's going to stop them from going,"How about we do some more in the name of "safety"?"

Remember when questioning the government's actions didn't mean you were made out to be some crazy conspiracy theorist? Yeah, neither do I, because that's been the standard for a long time now. That's why everything is so corrupt. Every time someone tries to say it's becoming that way they're seen as a crazy person. The government may not be out to get you, but you have to remember that it is made up entirely of corruptible people just like you and me, people who would rather keep secrets than lose their jobs. On a small scale anyone can rationalize that, but the government functions on such a large scale that it's gotten way out of hand. That's why it seems so crazy. Everyone thinks that when someone says the government is corrupt that they mean there's some large-scale plan to destroy the country, but what they really mean is that there are multiple small-scale problems that are causing things to collapse.

At work a few weeks ago I accidentally dropped one of the Ipads we are issued at work(I hate Apple, but have no choice) and it shattered. Rather than get in trouble for breaking th Ipad and the 1000 dollar program it was issued with, I threw it in the trash. And then reported it stolen from my desk. I worked with Loss Prevention for a week or two, doing "everything" I could to help find it. Eventually one of the security personal found it in the security trash sifter(where they check for attempted theft via hiding it in trash, and which I did not know existed until that point). The report reads that someone must have stolen it in order to get the records it contained, dropped it, and then threw it away to hide the evidence. I was given a promotion for being so helpful during the process. TlR-My pay increased by 30%, and I am now my old bosses boss, because I broke an Ipad and lied about it.

>implying the government would be "out to get" its own citizens

They need us as much as we need them. Also second amendment, calm yourselves.

Uh, they're trying to throw OUT the Second Amendment with all these "gun-control" laws.

This question goes out to all the non-bakers on FunnyJunk:
Would any of you care to talk about how I bake bread?
Or cake?
Or sweep the floor?
Or frost cupcakes?
No matter how much you want input in something, you can't have input unless you're active in that field.
If you want to tell the government off for what they do, if you want to change it, become a politician, and try to change it.
Otherwise, shut up. You can't catch fish on a mountain.

Remember when questioning your government was considered patriotic?

governments always seek to increase their own power. it makes it easier to rule. Its not that we think they are going to hurt us, just limit what we are allowed to do.
