In a democracy, we are the government. If government is the problem, the logical conclusion is that we are the problem. "government is the problem" has been a mantra of the American right since it was uttered by Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. But they haven't carried it to its logical conclusion.

Thanks for the visit, tikkis.
