  • yes why do you think i have this communist symbol.
  • yo dawg, iz dont think so eyeyye
  • No way. That's why we voted against the Bush-McCain wiretapping, internet-tapping, phone-tapping zealots.  
  • Not at all we are to tell the Government what to do .
  • Yes. I put my faith in the elected government. but then agian im a firm believer in authoritarianism so i might be a bit biased. Anything less than full government control is anarchy.
  • ...No. I would like to take care of myself and my family. We would protect, build, sow, grow, raise, and hunt... thats the way I wish it was. stupid taxes, rules..."ways"
  • Most people actually want the government to control your life, so they won't have to make too many decisions for themselves, or take responsibility for anything that happens. It's all the governments fault when anything goes wrong.
  • hell no !
  • it doesn't yo
  • I believe in morals and values and the part of government that inforces them, as for the govenment controlling my life, well, im the only one that gets to do that! And it seems our government needs some work of its own!! lol Besides, this is America (FREE) or whatever, thank god were not communist :) lol
  • They should set the general guidelines but specifics should be left up to me & my family
  • Yo!! No Way!
  • No, and I don't recall anyone saying it should either.
  • Could you offer something specific?
  • Nope. There need to be some basic guidelines but the insanity we have at present? HELL NO! The tax law is now over 60,000 pages, that is absurd and counterproductive, all it does is create employment out of thin air for accountants, lawyers, and statist slime like the IRS. The rest of us, you know, people who work for a living and pay for these scum get nothing but burdened and punished out of it. Gun laws are another area that is absurd, 20,000+ pages of state and federal law? Give me a break! I find that quite amusing considering that in the '50s you could walk into nearly any hardware store in this country and buy everything up to machineguns without any background check or paperwork (MGs had some paperwork but no background check). Funny, all those untraceable, unregistered guns floating around and we hadn't nearly the level of mass shootings and other random violence. Yes, it did happen from time to time but it was a different time before people became a bunch of hoplophobes afraid of EVERYTHING! Consider the economy, look what a hash the Federal Reserve's merry band of counterfeiters are making of it. Yet idiots and fools call for even more control at all levels, wanting Uncle Sugar to change their diaper and wipe the drool off their chin, I find it amusing that they demand full control of everything but fail to see that a government which can give and can control everything can also take and destroy everything. They put their trust blindly into faceless anonymous bureaucrats rather than trusting in themselves, their families, their friends. The abyss we are heading towards is a hell of Orwellian proportions. It is not as obvious as goosestepping in the streets but for that is all the more sinister, fascism with a smilie face. Complete top down control of every aspect of citizens' lives accomplished not at the point of a gun or with concentration camps but accomplished by burying the citizen under the weight of rules, regulations, and laws covering every aspect of their lives. Law no longer has anything to do with justice, it is now solely about providing the government with leverage. Leverage is in the mindnumbing complexity and contradictory nature of the federal codes, within that complexity the bureacrat has the power to reward political friends and punish political enemies by selective enforcement of the law. Case in point: Joe the Plumber. Not my favorite guy but can you keep a straight face and tell me they just so happened to audit his taxes and find something wrong in them? He was deliberately singled out and punished for daring to speak up and question. Meanwhile, Timmy Geithner is let off the hook for his tax 'errors' (assuming they really were mistakes) with no more than 'oops, I made a booboo'. Let me get this straight, he gets a pass for making a mistake when he is placed in charge of the TREASURY!? Joe gets hammered for making a mistake and he's in charge of only his own business? I could go on some more but I'm tired now. G'night, yo.
  • Hell no, I'd rather there be no government, especially once you realize that government is eventually controlled by criminals.
  • I would prefer that they stay out of my life, thank you.
  • Hell no. We should have a community where each person has a contribution according to their preferences and talents and a general set of rules everyone has to follow. A unified global sharing. Because the government is a cross section of the main populace. Which means there are as many thieves, murderers, rapists, child molesters, liars and con artists there as in proportion to regular society.
  • Not a chance in hell. YO
  • what happened to us YO
  • oOoOo NO oOoOo
  • Hell no, yo
  • Better to ask ... how do we stop that control completely ... and work it for the people rather than benefit those whom hold the seat. viva la revolution.
  • what do you think.
  • To a certain extent, yes. If the government did not have any control over us there would be anarchy. If there were anarchy we wouldn't have any of the conveniences we have today and people could kill anyone they want and steal anything they want. It would be survival of the fittest and the strongest. According to Hobbes life would be brutish, nasty, solitary, and short. I don't think many people would want to live that way. The government shouldn't have complete control over our lives, but there needs to be a good amount of control.
  • The 'government' is, once the mask comes off, merely other people. No to either of course, but anyone who thinks the government should have control has not really realized that what they are asking is for the popular kids to decide how they should behave. . Turns out there are some things you learn after kindergarten.
  • no...but we are enabling it to become so.....
  • Absolutely! After all, they do such WONDERFUL jobs with their own ...
  • I would like to see them try...
  • No, according to the constitution the governments role is to protect the citizens from foreign and domestic threats. The people of this country are to elect representives that reflect our wishes as to laws and oversight.
  • No, but I'm thinking that the government does not agree.
  • When it upholds the interests of the common man then yes. When it supersedes best interests in favour of profit of a few then no.
  • The government works for the people. It's not suppose to control, it's suppose to regulate and protect.
  • no, and they don't really control it now. society has more control of lives than government.
  • NO, WE'RE FREE AND WE'LL FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO STAY FREE. EX- COMBAT.
  • I am the only person qualified to control my life. The government has no business telling me much of anything.
  • I am not able to control this issue.
  • FOR THE 2ND TIME, NO AND I'LL FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT FOR FREEDOM AGAIN.
  • Since I am as much a part of the government a anyone else, I certainly do believe in self-control.
  • Hell no Yo!
  • YO YO GO GOV NO MENT NO?
  • No thanks :D
