Musuko: Our American government now, is nothing like it was when it was first instituted. It has grown into a monster with it's tendrils into everyone`s daily lives.
This government wants everyone under it`s thumb in some way, they want people reliant on the government so they can control them. To these bureaucrats, anyone living independently of `the system` is considered dangerous and needs to be crushed.
"Are you an American living in Europe by chance? If no, then your talking out of your butt."
No, I'm a European living in Europe...you know, that part of the world that has a history of ACTUAL oppressive governments.
Which somewhat puts the "oppression" you`re suffering into perspective.
Incidentally, to COMPLETELY finish Godwining this thread: to everyone who has their flag up, talking about revolution and overthrowing the government, take a look at history and see what tends to happen shortly after such revolutions...at the extremes of government that usually form the replacement.
What`s remarkable about the American revolution, and the arguably enlightened government that followed, is that it was a freak deviation from the norm. Don`t rely on it being the expected outcome. Not when the Soviet Union and the Third Reich, among others, are in our history books.
