Is it just me or is it getting increasingly difficult to trust this government of ours. I understand that President Obama is trying to make everything more transparent, but one still has to wonder about how much goes on that we don't know about.
Government is too big and too important to be left to the politicians.

"President Obama is trying to make everything more transparent"
Really? Coulda fooled me.
And you should never 'trust' government. It is a citizen's duty not to trust them.
hahah that's a great point. i guess it's never going to be fixed then!
You make this thread WHY?
It's a complete waste of effort.
These are just some of the topics already dedicated to your rant. It might be better if you did a little deeper research of the political forums threads? Which is obvious that you didn't.
However, if you would like, I've a few hubs dedicated to opening people's eyes to the problems in America.

I haven't provided all my hubs on the topic, because I'm not allowed to. These above are directly related to your topic. So, my posting is not self-promotion. But, simply the easiest way to express my view.
Hope you learn from everything I've just posted.
I can only hope you do.
How much time do you have? The country is run by a bunch of hirelings that are in it for the money. They do not represent the people or their interest, but their own. They have sold us out to the highest bidder (lobbyist) Up to recently a person in the Congress or Senate could go to prison for a felony and still receive their pension!
Here is one I wrote that sums up my opinion of a lot of the problem we are having in America http://hubpages.com/hub/thinkamerican
People get the government they deserve. You have a free vote.
very true,we did vote for these untrustworthy money lusters.
Just recently Congress passed a pay-go bill, President Barak Obama announced that any new spending would require the money to fund any new spending would have to be offset with savings from other sources.
Senator Bunning is holding up passage of a bill ($15 billion )
to extend unemployment benefits for workers.
Senator Bunning wants the Obama congress to fund the bill per the requirement of the pay-go bill.
The Obama administration wants to borrow more money to fund the bill,apparently the new law don't mean anything to this congress and the president.
Senator Durbin of Illinois,majority whip in the senate, stated that the majority will increase the request to $100 billion if the smaller bill is not passed.
The minority party asks where in the budget will the funding come from. The democratic majority has yet to respond and justify the expenditure.
The 111Th congress has a 75% non approval rating, it may be considered by some as corrupt.
Senator Bunning has a valid point. But why not just withhold funding from some foreign nation like Iraq, or Pakistan, or a number of any other foreign countries we dole out money to in the BILLONS. Considering this point makes his point BS.
The problem lies in the fact that a LARGE majority of the citizens have not a care in the world about government and politics. Let them do it so I can play my video games and text my friends, seems to be the popular attitude. So while noone is interested in the workings of government, our polititians allow special interests to rape and pillage at our expense, as long as their pockets are lined and they get to keep their candy ass, all expenses payed jobs.
Whats wrong with our Government? Come to My Town....pretty simple a disconnection with THE PEOPLE!
A problem I see is that if you try to communicate with your Congressman or Senator, you get a "I understand it better than you" response. I didn't vote for the guy but I should still have a voice. My absolute favorite part is that I can come visit him anytime in D.C., but not in his office that's 20 minutes away. Uh HELLO!
President Obama is trying to increase the government and take more liberties away from the American people. And yet, the same people who agrees with this lunatic who wishes to use the government to control the people, spoke so harshly about President Bush.
President Obama is, in my opinion, a radical leftist. He does not like the U.S Constitution, is a socialist and should not ever be trusted.
He does NOT know what he is doing. He is worse than the last president.

I just saw the new McG movie, "This Means War", and there's this one recurring joke that I don't understand, so I was hoping someone here can explain to me. In the film, Reese Witherspoon's character says that one draw about Chris Pine's character is that he has small hands. ...

I''m writing a hub about Why America is Getting Dumber. What are some things that are wrong with people in America? What are some things wrong now that weren't wrong 10+ years ago? If anyone has links to other articles or statistics, that would be cool as well.
