E:I believe that I had already said that each person's experience of getting the government they deserve is determined by how they live their lives, so it's well worth repeating since your response makes it clear that you didn't read it the first time.

This means no two people's experience of government is exactly the same. I actually have no personal complaints about my own experience of getting the government I deserve, because I live as if I deserve a decent government. So I'm free to enjoy my life, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness without interference from the government... because government is ~not~ the grantor of those inherent rights.

There are two approaches to the moral law of getting the government you deserve. One approach is to angrily blame (unjustly accuse) others for the just and deserved consequences of your own failure to do what's morally right... while the other is to realize that your own actions have consequences and to be mindful of the propriety of your actions. So while the local governments here are overwhelmingly liberal because the population is overwhelmingly liberal... that does ~not~ mean that Americans who live by different values than the political majority will get the same experience of government that the liberals deserve to get.

This moral law is ~not~ decreed by any government... but by ~how~ you live.
