Do you think the U.S.A government is failing to help its citizens?

It's not so much the government which is to blame. It's the actions of the people. Or, more appropriately, the inaction.

Government is looking out for itself in the guise of looking out for others.

Our prosperity ended at the end of the 60s. Before that, America was optimistic, and trusted their government. We had the highest level of education and technology, and a comfortable life. But then the Vietnam War happened. Cambodia. JFK's assassination. Martin Luther King's assassination. Malcolm X, Bobby, the Civil Rights movement, etc., etc., the list goes on. There was also Kent State.
At least, this was what my professor told me. After the 60s, after the murders of most of our prominent figures, and after 20 years of fighting in Vietnam, our country went downhill from there. Our downhill was a bit slow, and it may have calmed down for a bit....but the effects were still there, lingering. Lately, it has been picking up momentum. I don't blame the government, nor do I blame the people. Its just the way life is. None of the great empires have lasted, and America, as or was the greatest nation, probably has a time limit as well.

nobody likes an overpowered government.

if for say the earth becomes overly populated(i know it already is but think 10x more). they will massacre us, and nobody will do a thing about it. we are protected by other nations in this sense.

but really, its all about you. make a change. with the way it is now, its no different to the Greeks and the Colosseum. brush up on history.

America is still part of the Roman/British Empire. The idea that we become independent is a fallacy perpetrated by the Shadow government.

Fuck the Illuminati.

Has a bureaucracy ever been helpful, cause that's about all governments are good for creating. It's one big GDCF, and we get the F.

Not to mention we're heading towards fiscal cliff and Congress is still in a deadlock.

Meh, I don't really care. Any money that they take is money that I already expect not to receive, so I don't account for it.

Not to disagree with your point but the "-ment" in government is not short for "mental". It's a noun suffix the denotes an action or resulting state, a product, or means.

That's just one meaning only found in the mainstream dictionaries.
