Government Is Like Soylent Green -- It's People!

The lamestream media told you:

The government this, the government that, if not for the government, the government decreed today, according to government figures, at a special government event, government seeks increased funding, you get the idea. 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

We keep saying "government" like it's some independent entity. It's not a thing. Government is people. It is groups of people acting together.

Groups of people acting together can be very dangerous. When groups of people get together to act together, freedom is at risk. Armies form. One group takes money from another group. That's just the way things work. It's not "government." It's groups of people collaborating with each other.

Your perspective changes, real change, when you stop thinking about it as "government" and start thinking about it as people working together. Who are these people?

Most (tens of millions) are not elected, they have jobs (bureaucrats, "government workers," contract employees), and do things because they are told to, or decide to on their own, with money they are given by other people. They are people who live near you.

The elected people are the temporary help.
