The government of the United States of America.
The US government is "owned" by the civilian population of the United States, and they have the right to voice their opinions without consequences from the government.
There are three branches of the US government, from lowest to highest in power:
Local Government (run by a mayor)
State Government (run by a governor)
Federal Government (run by a president)
All three of these levels of government work together (sometimes; it depends) for certain purposes, such as involving taxes and how taxes can be used for various services. For example, the local and state governments work together, often, to create local services, like schools, police departments, and hospitals. The federal government, on the other hand, is rife with countless services and agencies, with enough power to serve the entire nation and other nations.
When one thinks of the US government, they usually think of the federal government, which is, as mentioned, the highest level of government.
The US government has been bashed time and time again concerning its true purpose. The US government does have certain secrets, but the US government is better than any other government if you stop and think about it. The US government is run by bureaucrats, not thugs (all kinds of nations think our government is evil and gone mad).
Although it is entirely your opinion, hear mine : THE US GOVERNMENT IS NOT EVIL.
"The US government is not evil like everyone says. Compared to other governments, we are just a bunch of mindless bureaucrats, not oppressive nazis or fascists or imperialists. Government agents, although a few may have agendas, are merely doing there jobs (hence the word "bureaucrat). Like one guy described the definition of government, the government just wants to be your friend....lol silly-sounding I guess. But it's said to be a well-known fact that you should NOT trust the government. Now after hearing that, I am confused."
