the government is you and me and you've all been trained to forget that by the ones pretending to be our masters!

turn off the television! it's only there to distract you and to make your mind up for you!

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.

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

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?

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.

A system that contains people that controls a state, a city or a country. However, governments can easily become corrupt since most of the people in office are control freaks and work long and hard to take away the rights and freedoms of the people that they supposedly serve. They normally give out the excuse that they are protecting the public when in reality they are all psychopaths, liars and control freaks. They take away freedoms on a yearly and sometimes monthly basis when they could be doing things such as solving problems such as murders, kidnappings, and homelessness.

Ironically, humans are not the only ones with governments, animals also have governments as well and the animals run their governments a lot more efficiently than any human can run theirs. For example, ants make sure that every member of their colony is fed and this includes their larvae or babies. Wasps do the same and bees also. This means that despite humans claiming that they're the smartest animals around, they are so idiotic that they are unable to run a system correctly.
A government is a pile of crap system that controls a country and the people are paranoid, power hungry control freaks that love taking away the rights of the citizens.

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.
