I don't believe the size of our government is what matters. Keep in mind that one idea behind democratic governments is that the bigger they are, the better they are. In a sense in democracies every adult is a part of the government. That's one of the concepts behind our own government, that a well-educated adult population can control and manage their own government and in that sense become part of it.

I don't think it is the size either, if you look at "big govt." it's some of the powers that be who are self interested, there are actually politicians from all parties who don't practice that, although during an impeachment time it changes.. Graham and McConnell know who Trump is, I think they can't stand him, what they will stand, is the republican party having control of the SC and moving conservative issues forward and keeping the presidency. This actually is the same in the UK, it is not about the person but the party/country, difference being when Churchill, Thatcher, May was kicked out it was by their own party for not moving the country forward, no corruption, no sex scandals, they just weren't doing their job and for a party to move forward that is what we should have adopted. You don't support a person who can't move the country and you certainly don't support a person like Trump and I hope this country has learned it's lesson, that no Joe the Plumber cannot run the country and neither has Trump, although I think Joe was just a wee bit smarter! I don't think it has anything to do with bigger or smaller but running the country in the right way that was meant when we went through a revolution and gained rights from that govt., that for many millions in the country as citizens do not receive that right to equality from their leaders, whether feds, state, county or city. It isn't as if other western countries do not experience racism, it is the way they address it. Curiously Yobbo as a black man experienced no racism as a black man as I did in London which was far worse than what I was used to. He's a millionaire, where did he live, that made a difference, I was in a borough in South London, different world than I would imagine he was, you know money can talk........

Governments don't operate based on human rights. They operate based on power. Our government is not an exception.

In the same way that courts (the government) operate when it comes to how they treat women ?

If one is wrong, or okay, with you ...

Of course courts, being a part of the government, operate based on power also. Their unequal treatment of women though is not due to the use of that power but the presence of bias and prejudice on the part of the American public that is allowed to participate in the court system.

Governments can misfire even in a democracy if the people in charge don't know what they are doing.

"The government" I always find that a weird statement, they are people and people and people make others unequal, not a govt., our govt. is supposed to protect those from bias/prejudice not encourage it. A democracy is what in govt. we should have had, we don't.

Including censorship ?

It is happening already. This;

"Rudy is a Trump branded mouthpiece/shark . Trump does not pay him for "being his lawyer" because Rudy is scamming his divorce settlement, he says.
 But given this story, is Rudy paying Trump Inc. to call himself "the POTUS' lawyer" in a branding deal, because of all the (foreign) business it brings in ? Just like with Trump's Washington hotel. Ironically, it is all the sort of business that is not supposed make Rudy have to really represent clients or anything, not even his Bar Ass. ethics , or ever have go into a court room.
 Opps, on that last bit.
 lol."

Was rejected by a big service for comments in my local news paper because it "contained a word of words not permitted"
Can anyone find A WORD instead of all of being being politically incorrect from some points of view that warrants censorship ?

What is unacceptable to the censors (bots) everyone, especially Philler ? Please explain to me why you defend some censorship and so this this being censored ?



Who is "he?" And Rudy's divorce settlement has to do with the 1st amendment in what way? The term "politically incorrect" is in your estimation, we are not the govt. and what one sees as politically incorrect can be in other persons, correct.
