Because they know that if they do not do well , we will replace them . Being a governor is not as same as being a father in home . Being a governor means that your mistake will not be forgiven . Thus , i trust my government . They believe in that people no loner worship the governments , they look at them as workers , so since the governor know that , he / she will do well in their work , so i trust them .
In America every person of power is elected. These people are not out to get us, and if they are corrupt, then we should elect a new person in their place. If you really disagree with whats going on you should make your own party, get a majority of the population on your side (doubtful) and run for president. America is run by the majority and that politician you don't like and the law you wish didn't exist and the tax that you pay was voted for by you, and your representatives. (or at least the majority's representatives).
Its obvious who the ruling class is. They do what ever they want. The best example is how GOP is so against Trump. They can't tell him what to do,, so they are trying to wreck his campaign. They need a figurehead, a puppet, a yes man. Bernie and Donald couldnt care less what they say.
Said no one, ever. Maybe if the NSA didnt spy on Americans or our allies, or if the IRS didnt single out tea party members, or if they kept promises about keeping your health plan, or if they didnt shut themselves down, or if our taxes didnt increase by 50% (our country exists because taxes were too high). It would be pretty neat if our nation didnt do that.
So many examples show how the population is being deceived. The Government is very corrupt and full of venal politicians who just work for their own benefit. They assassinate targets that they feel are a threat to the society. Them and whatever other secret groups perform clandestine actions by taking over the media (news, music). The government was involved in the inside job that was 9/11. If you don't believe that, no matter how sad it may be for all the lives we lost that day, the facts and evidence shows how it was a crime and how citizens were lied to by the government. Other things like the moon landings, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King Junior and John F. Kennedy can be traced back to the government. It's sad, but the government can not be trusted.
I am not saying that the government has not done anything helpful to its people, but we all know since the creation of humans, we have craved and lived for POWER. Order is needed for a civilized population, but there's a difference between Order, and Supremacy and Manipulation. Hypocrisy flourishes within the government.
