General Talk about our Government.

How about being politically correct? if we do that, then whatever the government does will be the way people will do it... which almost turns us into a dictatorship.

That's true, but I do tire of idiots using the whole "free speech" reason to rant their utter nonsense and push boundries. But I guess that's the beauty of it, beause they are allowed to do that. Neutral

Actually, you can have an effect on it by voting in the elections.

Well yeah, to some extent. Except I can vote all I want and there will still be problems in government. Laughing

.... I meant about the words we use and things like that. While our religion is THE religion, many a people are offended by our pledge of allegiance... because of the term 'under God'. Not everyone believes.

For example, our school recently changed the name of the famed 'Riot Night' into the stupid 'Noise Night', because Riot night implied people getting hurt.

SERIOUSLY???

As with anything, there are limits and just sheer insanity, you're example fits in that catagory. Political Correctness has it's place, but also it's limits. Wink

This country

This country is based off one document that control us and the judicial branch allows us to see what is legal and illegal.

Yes we should look at other types of government and compare the types of government so we know how lucky we are.

Guys, the government and Constitution given to us by our Founding Fathers (who aren't just a bunch of old white guys in wigs, gorramit) is flawless, and would be if we'd just stick to the shab'la document.

But no-o-o-o-o, we need massive government takeovers and control.


The form of government I favor is capitalism, because it doesn't destroy itself and provides liberty to its citizens.

HOWEVER, that is the reason I do not favor socialism/communism/liberalism/etc., because such a system limits its citizens at every turn.


HOWEVER mk 2: This is important: Capitalism is a flawed system. THERE! I said it! I support also another system which is unfortunately not overwhelmingly favored in today's society: distributism. It was invented by G.K. Chesterton, an English writer who has written about every conceivable topic in his vast collection of written works, from mystery stories to important commentary on his Christian faith and other such things.

If you haven't already read his books, you're not as smart as you could be.

If you have already read his books, you're smarter than you could have been.

Capitalism is good, but there needs to be some government contorl to regulate the greed. Fact of life is, most everyone doesn't follow God. but greed instead. The perfect capitalism is a mix of free market, with some government regulation, dictated by the people.

Exactly! Greed comes in two forms: one is the form of the greedy corporation which takes advantage of capitalism, and the other is the form of the greedy politician which takes advantage of over-regulation. That's why a balance is key, so that each checks and balances the other.
