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!
