Alright, I didn't read all the arguments here, but I get the general idea. I voted "Just partly...", but for the opposite reason as it appears most people have. I don't know about other countries, but I think the US government is a fine system. Of course it has a handful of major problems that the Founding Fathers could never have taken into consideration. The first is the Judiciary branch, which is odd in the fact that it allows a small group of individuals to make binding decisions for the entire country. The second is the media, which has taken the right to free speech a little too far; sure they can say what they want, which is good, but far too often they present only their version of the story, touting it as fact. This leaves many people — who think they know about all this corruption and all in the government, etc. — in the dark as to the true state of things. And a third, which is technically legal, though against the spirit of the Constitution, is the formation of a "Big Government," forbidding states from making certain decisions for themselves (the intent of United STATES of America). Examples include allowing abortion, gun ownership, and seceding from the Union.

So I support most of the government's decisions, especially ones protecting the safety of our country an that of others, such as the war in Iraq. I do not support political pandering, double-talk, laws that support these, or biased media, such as the so-called Global Warming crisis.

Sorry, just to clarify (oh for an "edit" button...): I oppose abortion, support gun ownership of all kinds, and support the ability to secede from the Union if necessary. I didn't word the original sentence very well.

I think our loocal MLA (the guy we send to our provincial govt, or you americans.) is a tool. He came to our school to participate in a political forum, and for his opening statement, he read aloud from his parties propaganda pamphlet. Whn the 3 minuites was up, he stopped in the middle of a sentance. It was lame. When he answered questions, he read off a sheet of prepared answers, no dought typed up by his secretary, who made sure to cover all the "hot topics". It was totally lame...

I just think that when heres government (Brasil) stop being busy trying just to be longer in power and increasing their power while stealing our taxes money, that is much more expensive and more taxes than in the USA.

But I do believe there is hope still and not all politicians are corrupt.

definitiv glaube ich an garnichts, nicht an religion und nicht an politik ;)... und wenn ich mir so anhöre wie großkotzig sarkozy behauptet atom-u-boote zu bauen mit atomraketen darauf die peking erreichen könnten, oder die aktuellen ereignisse in tibet betrachte, kann ich nur sagen: Denkt mal drüber nach wie sich das hier auf der welt entwickelt!
Enttäuschend das sich kein politiker der welt zu solchen dingen äußert, oder gar präventiv handelt wenn sich solche tendenzen zeigen!

I love government. Especially like in China. They have the best government. Their political stance and disregard of human life are especially desirable. Long live Che! Wait...

I find myself more or less incapable of trusting any government, least of all those dominated by capitalist interests, i.e. US/UK.
No, I do not believe in the government. I do not agree that anyone should be subject to any societal rule.

One of the things that seems to pass the time when talking with my friends at collage is discussing how unfair, illogical, and often incredibly foolish some decisions to do with law are made. (However these are largely to do with crime sentences and the prison system).
I trust the government to do the greater good, to keep control, to make us safe in every respect. However it is near impossible to not notice their flaws. But then, who is perfect?

Some things are corrupt, but I guess there must be a good reason to create elusions. Though we must remember that the media and politics are separate and some things are maybe ‘lost in translation’.

I have no power, I do not want it. I have no choice but to trust my government and I have faith with our world leaders, there is, after all, no other option.

I accidentally hit "no" I meant to hit "yes". I do support my government. I think they need to fix the overcrowding issue and some other things. But I'm not really that biased either way.

here in the states, corporations have most of the power. when did money start being the scale by which we weigh things, not actual strength of power?? power=money, not integrity :(
Obama FTW!

Big lie. Government and politicians are corrupt.

NEIN!

Denn die Politiker scheren sich einen Dreck darum was die Leute wollen!

Außerdem verstoßen sie selber gegen Gesetze... ab und an fliegt dann was auf, und kurze Zeit später ist es wider vergessen! Und die meisten "Skandale" kommen wahrscheinlich sowieso nicht raus!

Ich habe auch nicht das Gefühl, dass da zukunftsträchtige Arbeit geleistet wird! Von den Möglichkeiten die Deutschland eigentlich hat wird nur ein Bruchteil genutzt! Das liegt aber natürlich auch mit an den Bürgern...

Mir macht es wirklich Angst was die Politik da treibt!

I live in Canada... even here government is imperfect. Our federal government does a lot of good, but like any human institution, it fails now and again, regardless of who is in power. I would probably like to see more help for the poor and the downtrodden, while at the same time greater protections for those without any voice... and a few items that a social conservative like myself could appreciate. :)

Some I do, some I don't. A lot of their decisions are shit.
