The Purpose of Government

Our Government should exist to foster the “American Dream,” whatever the consensus says that should be, without regard to race or color, religion or creed, age, gender or orientation.

An individual citizen should be free to do or be anything they please, as long as their actions and words do not impede others from realizing their dreams.

People should be allowed to elect and remove representatives from office without undue influence from non-citizens.

People should try to get along.

Maybe I see things in too simple terms. But this is why I don’t believe corporations are people, or should have rights like people do. I don’t think lobbyists or campaign contributors serve the democracy, either.

Maybe we need a simpler form of government.
