  •  The Government as a foreign entity (10+ / 0-)

    The entire idea that we are self governed goes over the heads of most Americans.

    If we do not look from among ourselves for leadership then to whom do the conservatives suggest we look?  Smith's invisible hand of God?

    We the people are the government and the conservatives need us to forget that or else their theory folds.  

    Here in California conservatives have destroyed democracy with term limits that assure us of incompetent inexperienced lawmakers and with super majority limits on legislative budgets that assure us of third world infrastructure and budget shortfalls.

    When did it become patriotic to hate the American Government?

    This is not tea party patriotism, this is Whiskey Rebellion insanity.
