With leaders like President Obama and New York City Mayor Bloomberg dishing out life lessons and parental guidance from the comfort of their taxpayer-funded offices, it’s no surprise that people are beginning to feel as though they’re constantly being peppered with governmental instructions and regulations telling them what they can and can’t do, say, eat, or build, and where they can and can’t do each of those things.

Now, the people are pushing back and letting the government (who, wouldn’t you know it, is supposed to work for the people) know just what they think about it. Unsurprisingly, the tips being offered by the people are far better and more practical than the decrees being pronounced upon them by their elected officials.

Taxes, the size of government (which the president has complained is too small), and skyrocketing debt were popular topics:

The excessive advice and regulations of the creeping nanny state, the growing intrusiveness of government agencies like the TSA, and the Obama administration’s insistence on picking corporate winners and losers were also popular targets, with the common theme being, “stop wasting my money and leave me alone!”

Finally, the most resounding tip of all: a reminder that the people who make up government are replaceable, and that the people plan to do some serious replacing this November:

#deargovernment We'll be making some drastic changes come Nov. Hope you take well to the adjustment
