As a citizen of America just what do I expect from our government?

Federal government: To insure that reasonable treaties of commerce between friendly nations are running smoothly. To see to it that America has reasonable security, but not at the expense of the freedoms and rights of the citizens. To adhere to the laws of the Constitution as was written in the beginning. To keep government small and functional under the Constitution. To insure that the people are not burdened with excessive taxes and control spending of moneys that belongs to the people and not the government. To insure that laws apply equally among all Americans.

State government: To insure that the state and its people are secure of aggression from enemies foreign and domestic. To hold the federal government liable for violations of Constitutional law. To insure that free and unmolested commerce between citizens go smoothly. To fight for lower taxes of the peoples and goods. To maintain a very conservative spending of the Citizens tax dollars on necessary infrastructure. To insure that all peoples follow the Republic and not some half assed social-ist/communist dictatorship. To insure the right to work of all citizens. To remove excessive, unjust, and unconstitutional laws.

Local Government: To hold the state government accountable for violations of Constitutional law. To insure the citizens have a right to free commerce and trade. To insure that local needs are met. To keep law enforcement up to date on education, training, equipment, and pay. To provide for the general education of the children. To uphold the security of the peoples in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable search and seizure.

Law Enforcement: To uphold, protect, and defend, the Constitution first and foremost. To hold that all peoples are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. To be the friend of the public and not a supporter of a police state. To insure that the laws are fair among all the citizens. To insure some security from crime for the peoples, (the peoples must take responsibility for their own protection). To insure that the people have equal access to the means for self-preservation of property, self and family.

The citizen: To keep your fucking nose out of my business unless I am breaking the law. Hold all of the above’s feet to the fire. (Accountability of the government)
