Taxes - We have too much.
The government makes its money from taxes, and yes all countries do need some form of tax or another. But when it reaches the point where they take so much money, but still are in massive debts, and they have no alternative other than more taxes, that's when it's too far. Where is our money from commerce? Hell, the United States was colonized in the first place because of its natural resources, and the colonists were able to be sustained for generations just by selling and shipping to other countries. Too bad we depend so much on foreign stuff nowadays we can't even do that. There should be some other more efficient ways to generate funds rather than all the taxing. Maybe we should start a war, that always boosts the economy greatly. Oh wait, we did start a war over in the Middle East, and it's been putting us billions of dollars into debt for the past 7 years. We need a real war.
Guns - We don't have enough.
Now I say this because... think about it. The reason people with guns can get what they want is because they have the potential to harm the person until they submit, they have more power. I think everyone should have a gun. Why? If everyone had a gun, if everyone were toting around firearms, then all gun problems would stop. People couldn't be held up at gunpoint for their money because they have their own gun and will fight back. People can't threaten to rob a bank because everyone in the bank will pull a gun on them. The reason why guns are so powerful is because they are used against people that don't have guns. The same could be said for military power. I mean, imagine how powerful the US would look if everyone else had the same military might we have. Not so world-dominating now, huh?
Homelessness - Keep a balance of it.
There's no way to really eliminate homelessness. It's just too much. If people can't afford a home, they live on the street, and unfortunately that's the way things are. It would be economically impossible to get all these people back into homes (it's most likely their fault for being that way in the first place). Fortunately the people who have homes are the majority. If people without homes were the majority, there could be a problem. They could rise up and cause chaos, making everyone wish they had paid that guy on the corner a dollar instead of sneering and walking by. But then if there were no homeless people, people might become unhappy and want more, and no one would need to buy homes anymore.
Government - We think we have too much of it but we really don't have enough.
Everyone is always saying "Down with the government" etc. Why are they saying this? It's because they are unhappy with what the government is doing. If the government did its job, then there would be no need for all this. The government needs to be able to solve our problems, but it doesn't, so people get mad. If the government does expand a bit to solve some problems, people still get mad because they say the gov't is getting too large. Grow up people. The only thing the government can do is expand. If it scaled back, you would lose the stuff you have now. The problem is that the government doesn't always expand just to solve problems. Sometimes it will make up problems as an excuse. That's when it's unnecessary.
