Quote:Don't you fear that your government might try to abuse their power?
FYI, in the Western world, being afraid of your government is a phenomenon that seems to be unique to the United States. Being afraid of the Canadian government would be outright laughable. Perturbed and annoyed? Sure. But thinking they will come for me in the night? If that's really what it's like in the US, then either 1) exercise your democratic rights to elect a government you can feel safe with, or 2) if #1 isn't an option, FIX YOUR SYSTEM so there are better options you can trust. The United States is supposed to be the shining beacon of democracy, so use it!
P.S. I do recognize that your post is probably satirical, but there do seem to be a lot of US citizens with a high degree of suspicion for their government, which I just can't understand.
And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
