Sigh... all right I take the bait, toss back a swig of coffee and respond:
And ya think the British Government or the Russian Government or the Chinese Government is forthright and honest with it's citizens?
I'm kinda fed up with all the U.S. bashing. We aint perfect, but we are the most innovative attempt at democracy on the planet. yeah, we have jerks in
power (both parties). But if our system can hold together through this storm, we'll be alright.
We all need to be vigilant against tyranny. But as individuals, we have so little power. Just day by day choose to be awake, discerning, protect and
defend that which you believe in....and yet do the best by our fellow man and woman.
I know too many people who have chosen to serve in the military for these very reasons.
Sociopaths at high levels of government abuse their power and direct the use of military inappropriately --- all the time in every country.
Anyone can sit at their computer screen and spew negative, angry, divisiveness all day and night.... as monkeys toss poo as eachother.
I'm not giving up. I'd rather keep working for creative solutions for a better world, work locally. --- I do not expect my government to do a darn
thing for me.
