You should always be questioning your government, but do not become cynical.
Under the doctrine of separation of powers, the manner in which the president personally exercises his assigned executive powers is not subject to questioning by another branch of government.
The same government that requires a taxpaying citizen to document every statement on his tax return decrees that questioning a welfare applicant demeans and humiliates him.
Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
