I think the answer must be YES for a couple reasons.

  1. party politics.  The founding fathers warned about this that there should be no parties for politics.  too much partizenship (sp).
  2. Special interest groups.  who gets what.

These lead to the government being the for their own means, instead of a government for the people and by the people.  We lose freedoms every day because of this.  The government is too big for it's britches and needs to come down and get back to the basics of what the declaration of independance and constitution is about.  The inailable rights and freedom and why we have a government in the first place.  KISS is a good thing lets use that for going forward.
