Well MrSpad, If you sat down and really took the time to learn our history you would notice that when # got bad, It took serious action to swing the
pendulum in the other direction.
British influence>American revolution
Discrimination>civil rights movement
Cold War> A cold hard pres
Corruption like never before seen is US history>? (guess what kiddo)
Edit: People are waking up to it, it's not behind the scenes and out of sight anymore! Attacks are being brought against our constitution like never
before... The gun ban situation in CT is a great example (that's a blue state in case you didn't know), they are sticking it to the man! The US is a
powder keg ready to blow, the scandals and lies have been packed too tight, the pressure is building, is gonna happen. Maybe not on the 16th, but
it's cocked locked and ready to rock. A big change is coming (my guess is Nov)
If you knew our history you would know that corruption is not anywhere near being like never seen before, unless you mean it is the least. You might
be able to make that claim.
And what is this Cold War>A cold hard pres nonsense. What ended the cold war was 50 years of a failed economic policy in the USSR. Not the spying on
American Citizens at a level that makes the NSA today look like they respect privacy, not the foced in the addition of God into everything to counter
the godless communist, not the fact you could be hauled in and blackballed for just knowing somebody who dared to question the governement, not the
propping up of anti communist dictators around the world etc.
And as for gun laws? We have more gun rights now than at anytime in our history. Just as we have more rights in general. This foolish notion that
people are taking rights away shows a complete and total lack of knowledge of American history.
You can toss around this gibberish about big change etc. but, the simple fact is nobody is going to turn over what they have now for chaos. Even when
the US had real scandals and at times was a real powder keg people nothing happened beyond protests. Today life is so good and so easy people do not
even bother to do that much. They may sit around and complain on the internet but, to go out and even vote is to much effort.
How about instead of these grand fatasies that everybody is suddenly going to join lockstep in agreement with your political goals and take over the
country, you try just doing something for your local community. At least that migh make a small difference, while being another small group of people
with miss spelled signs who have no idea what they are talkinig about will make none.
