Maybe we should be more suspicious of individuals who can run for office and apparently have no "blemishes" on their life record. To me that says they have never lived and they have always laid out their life in a manner that puts them in a position to hold power over the common folk. If we looked at an individual on the basis of will they make decisions that are right, even if unpopular, maybe today we wouldn’t be worried that this government has become so intrusive that there is nothing left in your life that they do not either directly or indirectly control. The government is involved in what comes into your house as far as food, medicine and access to information, and it continues to get more and more intrusive everyday, sadly we continue to allow it. I’m not saying that the government doesn’t have some jobs, but those jobs should be severely limited. It is a sad day when an American can no longer trust his/her government to do the basic job that it was given in the Constitution, but the scary part is the government doesn’t do what it is suppose to do, but now has power over things that it was never intended to do. Time to trim the fat and that should start with every politician who does not support a smaller less intrusive government.
