Government is a group of elected officials whose duty is to represent the American people as a whole and create laws and motions that lay in the favor of the majority of the population while still maintaining the civil rights of each individual. The importance of the American Government is simple and for the most part clear: to keep the citizens which they are representing in a safe and liberating environment. Without a central government the streets would soon be filled with anarchist and open the door to a tragically unsafe society and result in a potentially poverty stricken nation. And, with that possible outcome hanging over the heads of our beloved politicians their goal and sole purpose is to appease the majority of the American people and to maintain control of all of us.
