Do you still believe the government represents the people? Are you part of the majority that genuinely wants the government to do good things?
There remains a large portion of the population that believes government to be a force for good and they blindly support giving it more power even at the expense of their own liberty.
Perhaps government should be a force for good represented by the will of the people. But, unfortunately, that is not what it is. Instead, the government does horrible things including breaking laws that regular citizens would go to jail for.
Ask yourself, why is a “representative” government allowed to do things that regular citizens are not allowed to do?
When a government declares itself above the law of the land, then the people live in a imperial dictatorship, and a tyrannical one at that. It is the hallmark of a ruling class that lives with a separate set of rules than the rabble.
Take a look at the top ten things the government can do that would land you in jail:
Spying: You are considered a Peeping Tom if you spy on your neighbor, and if caught you’d go to jail or be sued. Citizens are also increasingly being arrested for filming police or public buildings under wiretapping charges of all things. Meanwhile, the government is using massive resources (paid for by tax slaves) to violate the Constitution to spy on everyone and everything with impunity.
Insider Trading: Yes, you will serve jail time like Martha Stewart did for using marginally helpful insider trading information, but politicians voted themselves exempt from insider trading laws. It must be nice to be exempt from the peasant’s laws.
Hacking: You will go to jail if you hack into someone’s cell phone or email account. The government, on the other hand, has legalized wiretapping and hacking to keep us safe. As they attempt to convince the public that nation-states and terrorists will engage in cyber attacks so that they can pass Internet control legislation, the U.S. and Israel are the only nations to publicly admit to attacking another nation with a computer virus.
