I'm anti-government and proud of it....history proves over and over that governments lie and are corrupt and don't care about the general well being or safety of the taxpayers that struggle just so politicians can mismanage taxpayers dollars and live the celebrity life-style off the backs of hard working taxpayers....anyone that sides with corrupt governments and what they stand for is either delusional and/or one of the rich and entitled.
You are certainly entitled to your opinion but from my perspective I like paved streets, safe cities, safe food and safe products that I buy and for that I need the government and their oversight.
I dislike many things about
the governments but at the end of the day I like having their help and oversight.
You mention "celebrity life-style" and not too many politicians come to mind, the first one that I can think of is Donald Trump. Yes there are the occasional corruption case but it's usually small stupid stuff.Fact is, many big corporations including banks, big pharmas, airlines that they bail out (anyone they bail out) are all branches of government, and governments that are corrupt like in North America (both Canada and USA) are corrupt IMO, some see it, some don't. Vets are not properly taken care of, taxpayers health is not well taken care of, starving and homeless families are not well taken care of, seniors are not well taken care of, industries are not well taken care of (that are not in some way connected to government) many laws are not made with common sense, many live as if in third world countries especially after natural disasters, roads, hospitals, schools and many public necessities are not well taken care of....more hard working taxpayers live like peasants than anyone in government (the higher in government the better for them and their families that don't live with the social and economic issues the typical taxpayer does). They throw a few peanuts at us and for some that's good enough I guess, not for me. Especially when it's clear they live the celebrity lifestyle....elaborating on that, they live the high-life, spend crazy (taxpayers dollars) on extravagances for themselves/family, they have the best retirement packages that don't even compare to celebrities, which makes politicians even worse IMO, just like the way they can break their own laws (in Canada we have a lot of corrupt politician that should be in jail for things they've done with taxpayers dollars, but it never happens, they get investigated (at taxpayers expense) and then charges get dropped) meanwhile hardworking taxpayers stress and struggle making ends meet and dealing with many other social issues often caused by bad government choices.
