Currently, a body of people charged with the administration of a given society, who may claim to be official and legitimate—and who think they take action in the public interest—but who are, in fact, not genuinely official, as they hold office at the whim of public mood; certainly not legitimate, as they authorize action contrary to life and the laws of nature; and generally not public-spirited, as they frequently ignore the concept of the common good in their deliberations.
The chief executive of the US federal government lied to US citizens and the world to start a war for the interests of a certain few business entities and perhaps his own low self-esteem, and with the complicity of the US Congress, systematically murdered many thousands of people in the pursuit of freedom and democracy for those people and brought international disrespect toward his own nation, and promulgated more violence in an already troubled world.

government is like a condom in that it allows for inflation, halts production, destroys subsequent generations, protects a bunch of pricks, and provides its constituents with a sense of security while they are actually being screwed.
... too many to list.

oh yea, government.

A money-driven conspiracy of liars, cheaters, and conartists claiming to control all morality. They assume that they know everything, including the difference between right and wrong, but to not realize how hypocritical they truly are. They will create their own destrution, while their victoms sit and watch them fall.
Fuck the government!

They've been telling us how it's going to be... wait a second! were supposed to be doing that!
The government is us; we are the government, you and I -- Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States.

Although the government does many things that are unnecessary and only work towards the inconvenience of the general population, I can assure you, society would not function without it.
You people may despise the government and taxes, but you must realize that roads, hospitals, police, etc. don't come out of nowhere. What? You expect other people to do all these things for you, without you making any kind of contribution?

Something which always has too many flaws and is never perfect
What would happen under certain governments;

Communism: You have two cows. The governemt takes away both, gives you a small share of the proceeds and shares the rest out with the population.

Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes away just one and shares it out between themselves and the population

Liberalism: You have two cows. The government taxes you slightly on the sale of them

Conservatism: You have two cows. You are taxed almost zero on the sale of them, but the agricultural business will be subject to a recession pretty soon anyway

Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes away both and shoots you
