Government guys are friends of whoever special interests lobbyist, Big oil, Big Auto, Bankers, Industrial Military Complex you name it, puts more money in their pockets for reelection campaigns, those are their "friends", Big Government is friend of the MONEY, not "The People".
Welcome to America, "the beautiful", "the Free".. welcome.

Until the pipe dream vanishes... and like ALL other empires in Human History comes tumbling down .. it will happen .. just matter of time, it will happen no matter what you think or say, the beginning of the end already started. is coming, sit quietly and watch it happen.
