There seems to be a lot of fear out there these days about just what exactly the Federal Government is or what it's becoming. To those on the left, it cannot be big enough. To those on the right, it needs to be rolled back and with some, believe it's on its way to becoming totalitarian. Without any name calling, I would like those of you out here to not only vote but to describe why it is that you feel the way you do. This poll is for everyone, left and right or center. If we are to ever settle our differences about which direction this country is going then it needs to start here, not with the chair-polishers in D.C.

I am not afraid of it because I don't give it power over me. No doubt there are those who spread fear from the president on down. I guess something that really gets to me is the way people act around this president like he is some god like figure its troubling in the sense that so many are putting their faith in him they really don't listen they just cheer when he says something instead of questioning his words. From every government agency from the top to the lowly local police departments we see a trend at least I do that we are just lowly dregs who are stupid and or ignorant and they need to lecture and bully some into submission to be compliant. I also see people who are oblivious to anything they just want to be entertained be it sports, tv shows, their own way of escaping be it drugs, crime, or the myriad of toys from video games to motorcycles. People have blinders on they don't want to see the truth all around them we have been bought and sold like any other commodity with the full extent of that sale still not realized but someday it will hit them in the face and they wont even blink they will just go along again and again and again.
