"the stinking government that they choose for themselves"
Ask most Americans and they do not agree with what the government does/says/implements. Another post describes it perfectly, they put up ridiculous flight restrictions with extremely porous Northern and Southern land borders. The problem lies in our two party system, so that most elections we don't have a choice of a 'good' candidate, just the lesser of two evils. Another contributing factor is the immense size of our Federal government. You don't like your government do you ? Imagine dramatically increasing the size of your own bureaocracy and see what you get.
FFS, most of you need to stop confusing a meddlesome, overweight, stupid...oh wait, just looked around...now I see your point!
Mine's the one with "USA: Love it or leave it" on the back.
