I choose the second option. Overall, I trust the government, but I'm skeptical about what our government does.

I don't think voting is pointless. Since I'm a Canadian, I vote for the Green Party because I don't trust all of the other parties in Canada. The NDP, the Liberals and Conservatives I don't trust.

I believe it is important to have a certain level of trust towards our government. Too many people these days latch onto crazy conspiracy theories such as every terrorist attack and school shooting being done by the government.

We need to have a certain level of trust towards the government because our society is too complicated to function without a government.

Overall, I'm saying is that many conspiracy theorists need to be ignored because they spread too much FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt).

About the only conspiracy theory I somewhat believe in is 911 possibly being an inside job. I say it is possible 911 was an inside job, but I'm not confident that it was done by the government. I will explain in a later thread why I'm not 100% certain 9/11 is an insider job.

I really doubt that the American government really has the general people's well being in mind, but I don't completely distrust them.

The government is not some alien deity. It is made up of people like you and me so there's all types there, good, bad, indifferent, greedy, short sighted, far sighted, single minded individuals and the ugly.

Governments consist of people that seek power. But, as history teaches us, humans will abuse any power they are granted. To think those people act in your best interest is naive and foolish.

Personally I think the President is just a face, a figure or what have you with little to no power when it comes to actual decisions that change reality.

Plus reality is what you make of it. I'm not going to blame the president on things that I have power over.

But if it came to things such as citizenship, visas, etc then the government has a say.

I don't think you should ever fully trust your government but don't think you should not trust them at all. I split my trust half and half.

I don't trust the U.S. Government or my State Government in the least. Power corrupts and the leaders in government have more power than they can handle. However there is a double edged sword in all of this. If we the people were given full and total control/power over ALL decisions in our own states, cities and towns then it would be just as twisted, corrupt and bad, possibly even worse. So all in all, we are damned if we do have a government and damned if we don't.

I don't trust the Australian government in the least.


OH LETS BAN GUNS (sure it did lower crime so i give them that i used to be all for gun bans until i realised if we revolt welp were fucked now)
OH LETS see cartoon porn (lolicon,Shotacon) as child pornography. (Seriously i mean i don't look at that kind of stuff but i have come across it it's a cartoon not a child)

OH LETS send people to jail for above or looking at cartoon beastiality (once again in my opinion if it's a cartoon it's ok and these retards want to fill up our prisons even more with innocent people)

OH LETS STOP PIRACY (NO JUST NO if your going to stop piracy you need to stop it the right way by making the source material available legally)

I pirate by streaming Anime sometimes i own up to it but i always look for a legal place to buy it or rent it first if no such place exists then i start to rely on not so much legal methods.

I refuse to be restricted from stuff because my country is a shitstain on humanity (looking at you AUSTRALIA).


OH LETS BAN VPNS (i swear this was there thoughts a while ago)

"Wind farms are a blight among the land" (proceeds to build more coal mines whilst shutting down clean energy plants) (ノ °益°)ノ 彡 ┻━┻


Lets see...Ruining our internet in Australia forever CHECK being a Nanny country acting like we are toddlers who need supervision CHECK.

I could go on but tell me one reason to trust them they can't even use common sense.

Why? They often pass shit they know kills and harms people, foods and drugs. Every single one has taken pocket money in a way that does harm to people, not just physically, but also their financial welfare.

The only reason I didn't pick the last option is because we're not North Korea or similar. Not that it's saying much.
