AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

A Government Should Fear its People?

So recently I read someone posted that their favorite line from a movie was the following line from the movie ‘V for Vendetta’: “People should not fear their government, government should fear its people.”

That’s a nice and dandy sentiment and all, but it is meaningless… considering that these people who don’t want to fear their government, and want their government to fear them instead, continue to vote the same totalitarian jackasses into government positions for DECADES.

So yeah, it’s nice to pimp that line, but it’s meaningless without action. Want the government to fear the people? Then the people need to stop voting the totalitarian jackasses into government and continue voting the current ones out of government.

In other words, the problem is not the government, the problem is the people who voted to put such government in place.
