i think this a very crucile time in america. america is dispiesed by more and more countries and it does seem that our foriegn policy is the culprit.
i don't think that something like what happened in the 2000 elections would be enough to get something started. less than half the popualation votes
and most of them don't know how it works or even follow what is happening unless it just before an election.
there will be more of a slow revolution. that is because of the nature of the american population. what is that you ask? "if it doesn't affect me
personaly, i'm just gunna wait and see what happens.' The american population seems very delusional. 2 examples....( i've got my hip wanders on
for this first one so, dish it out, i'n ready
) I love the beging shows of American Idol!! do that many people think they are that 'good'? and
their supposed freinds think the same way. there is a difference between trying because you are that good, and totaly sucking and trying anway. if
you have seen any of those episodes you know what i mean. i think it says alot about the population....most live in their own little world, oblivious
to the reality around them.
#2 i used to work at a s#$tty a#s company that walked all over the emploies, grossly under paid, obviously played favorites when it came to raises, i
could go on but....so we tried to unionize. it failed. we had about 60% support but only a few of us were willing to voice the facts openly. people
were afraid about what might happen. we held 6 informational meetings about the facts of the matter but got a poor turn out. When the company had 1
'informational' meeting, everybody went. why, cause they didn't want to go out of their way for info..the were able to do it on company time and
could get ot to attend. and 2 months after the uprising die down, yhey closed the office..no reason given
so my point is the american population has been lead for so long on the path of complaisancey that only a shovel to the head will wake them
