By systematically spying on every phone call and email it can get its fangs on, government has abundantly demonstrated it does not trust us, who are forced to pay its bills.

So the only surprise here is that the percentage of us who distrust government is not higher yet. Seems they are still able to fool as many as a quarter of the people.

Can you trust a gov't that commits extra-judicial killings in its own land (i.e. Michael Hastings)?

With immigration 'reform', those numbers should improve.

So I challenge you secret anonymos commenters to speak up about your country of origin and how perfect it is. Any of you, there are a small handful of socialisitc countries where the system functions, but guess what, most of them are still complaining because they have to pay 260 euro a semester to visit the Uni or pay for the unemployed alcoholics or for the 1000 poor and hopeless immagrants that enter each week. All I am really trying to say is in the end is give some advice or open your borders to let those troubled in or just shut your freakin hole!

We will have change sooner or later for the good because we have hope as a society who is willing and want to keep what we already have and what we have worked for, unlike many, so many, too many other ignorant countries who policies are barbaric and still biblical because of forced religion or a closed culture. r borders to let those troubled in or just shut your freakin hole!

We have a stronger and fearless voice in America, and that has much more lethal and just potentiel then most of these other lands and countries in the world that shoot, kidnap and rape their landsman and women for speaking out against their leaders and regime.

The only ones who trust government are the welfare types and bankers who run it.

GoldMorg Com , the usa GoldMorgs plans to nuke Goldman Sachs It will be blamed that internet publications growd hatred and leaded to the nuclear attack. Internet like infowars,com boilingfrogspost,com of sibel edmonds. The GoldMorgs want all banned from internet.
3- A false pretext to attack N-Korea and Iran. They will be accused of connections to the nuking of Goldman Sachs, like Afghanistan and Iraq were accused of 911, while Saoud and the US were connected to 911.
4- And various other reasons for a pearl harbor, twin towers, 2013 nuclear attack on Goldman Sachs, in reality by the GoldMorgs themselves again.

GoldMorg Com , the usa GoldMorgs planned to have the building of Goldman Sachs destroyd with an old fashion portable nuclear mine. This serves several purposes.
1- To pretend that all data have disappeared so that they become unavailable for a search by a disobedient FBI after the lootings of trillions by the GoldMorgs.
2- A false pretext to ban all internetexposure about the banksterfamilies, the four horseman and the eight. The internetexposere about the GoldMorgs is a steadily developing true picture about the GoldMorgs, with more and more structure and facts, like on veteranstoday,com
