Government is A Virus. Cure the Infection

My recent computer virus experience has triggered a connection in my mind. The similarities between government and an "anti-spyware" computer virus are staggering. Both sneak in to your life, corrupt it, and take over. They infiltrate every place they can; change your homepage, background, favorites, desktop shortcuts, .... whatever is most destructive. They lock up the whole system, keeping you from accomplishing what you need to do. They present themselves to you as the "solution" for the mess they caused. I have read somewhere that "government is a disease masquerading as its own cure".

I'm sure the virus is still present in this computer, but it seems to be disabled...for now. I ran antivirus programs. I searched for every file that might be associated with it and deleted them. Finally, in desperation, I restored my computer to an earlier date; just like "we the people" need to do to America. It worked.
