236 Years

Sadly, I'm not flying my flag today. If I did, I would fly it upside down.

Calling BS on this. USA is strong, capable, and inclusive! The people of USA ARE living the dream!!

Government exists in any and all activities that involve more than one person; two or more people get together you have government. Interactions of people are governed by mutually agreed upon civil, social, and legal customs, traditions, rules, regulations, and/or laws. The greater the number of people, the more complex civil and social customs, traditions, rules, regulations, and/or laws become.

Industry/business, (private, public and/or government) functions within the confines of the society within which it operates. Industries/businesses must work within the civil, social, and legal customs, traditions, rules, regulations, and/or laws.

One of the duties of governments is to assure that industry/business operate properly and safely within established customs, traditions, rules, regulations, and/or laws. This is called ‘law and order’; its purpose is to assure for the open, regulated, and safe environment for business activities within modern civil society. The economy will take care of itself as long as industry/business work within the law and order of society’s established customs, traditions, rules, regulations, and/or laws.

The USA representative form of government is of the people, by the people, and for the people. We the people decide/establish customs, traditions, rules, regulations, and/or laws for ourselves, companies, businesses, industry, and government within USA.

The people’s government of USA, as represented by the federal Congress, passed the ACA. The people's President of USA signed the ACA bill into law. The people's Supreme Court of USA declared the ACA constitutional. The people's government will govern and implement the ACA. Like the other positive and popular Social Security program, Medicare/Medicaid programs, and now ACA - we the people are witnessing representative government of the people, by the people, and for the people in all its non-elitist, non- royalist glory.

One of the purposes of all government is to protect the people. Having a safety net under the high-flying trapeze artist does not prevent the artist from being any better or worse than the individual wants to be. It does not constrict a person’s sense of freedom, either.

As you say you are a _RETIRED_ veteran, how can you not be flying 'ol Glory"?

Yoy, lady, have been drinking too much koolaid. And I have never claimed to be a "retired" veteran, merely a veteran.
