Alright, I didn't read all the arguments here, but I get the general idea. I voted "Just partly...", but for the opposite reason as it appears most people have. I don't know about other countries, but I think the US government is a fine system. Of course it has a handful of major problems that the Founding Fathers could never have taken into consideration. The first is the Judiciary branch, which is odd in the fact that it allows a small group of individuals to make binding decisions for the entire country. The second is the media, which has taken the right to free speech a little too far; sure they can say what they want, which is good, but far too often they present only their version of the story, touting it as fact. This leaves many people who think they know about all this corruption and all in the government, etc. in the dark as to the true state of things. And a third, which is technically legal, though against the spirit of the Constitution, is the formation of a "Big Government," forbidding states from making certain decisions for themselves (the intent of United STATES of America). Examples include allowing abortion, gun ownership, and seceding from the Union.
So I support most of the government's decisions, especially ones protecting the safety of our country an that of others, such as the war in Iraq. I do not support political pandering, double-talk, laws that support these, or biased media, such as the so-called Global Warming crisis.
Sorry, just to clarify (oh for an "edit" button...): I oppose abortion, support gun ownership of all kinds, and support the ability to secede from the Union if necessary. I didn't word the original sentence very well.
I think our loocal MLA (the guy we send to our provincial govt, or you americans.) is a tool. He came to our school to participate in a political forum, and for his opening statement, he read aloud from his parties propaganda pamphlet. Whn the 3 minuites was up, he stopped in the middle of a sentance. It was lame. When he answered questions, he read off a sheet of prepared answers, no dought typed up by his secretary, who made sure to cover all the "hot topics". It was totally lame...
I just think that when heres government (Brasil) stop being busy trying just to be longer in power and increasing their power while stealing our taxes money, that is much more expensive and more taxes than in the USA.
