How is our government doing?

In Utah, gay couples can jointly file state taxes. This shows our government is trying to "establish justice" because they are beginning to treat all citizens equally and make fair laws no matter if those citizens are gay or straight.

Connecticut police are finding evidence trying a murder case linked to Aaron Hernandez. Showing insurance of "domestic tranquility" since if this man is put in jail then there will no longer be the risk of him harming other citizens.

The tape surfacing of Adam Lanza's voice talking about mass shootings is an example of how the government is doing poorly keeping communities safe from crime and disorder or "insure domestic tranquility". If they had realized he had been a threat from these suspicious phone calls then many citizens would still be alive right now. Therefore they were not kept safe.
