"Precisely.   "Because we don't trust you" is not the right answer to that question.  Read the federalist Papers.  They're not supposed to trust us...or us them.  That's how the system was designed."

Thanks for the add, David. Have you ever worked in a library before? If not, try either getting a part-time job or volunteering at your local library. I worked in libraries all through my undergrad (community college and also my alma mater). And when I decided to go back to grad school (got my Master's degree in library science from University of Pittsburgh), I volunteered at my neighborhood's local branch - a good experience.

If you have any other questions, I would be glad to try and answer them. Good luck to you!
