ok here is the deal..........

every where i go i hear people talk about how the president
is killing inisent americans and starting wars in other countries.

bla bla bla.... then i see the bumper stickers that say

"stop bush now and, stop our wars"

why is it we can speek our peace about the problems of our nation
or the wars or anything in general.

why cant we publish it in the news or take it to the problem like they did
back in the day when there was problems. look at crawford texas. right now there is plenty of deminstrators there making there point and plan
to be heard. especialy when a neighbor comes out shooting his gun
saying he was dove hunting. thats how you get attention and things
done. sometimes you have to cross boundries. but really why is it we dont
do sompting like demonstrate or protest any more. shure we do but not like we should. we want our troops home and to stop waisting our money
in wars and testing. why dont we do sompting .....................

Who's we?

That's the first question you have to answer.

The people who really want to do something about the situation are, in fact, doing something about it.

If you want to do something, do it.

Don't wait for any 'we' though, because that's what everybody else is doing, and the results of this mass indecision are clear.

I won't be a part of that we, by the way. I intend to watch the unfolding world, and survive in it, nothing more, nothing less, business as usual. I can adapt to the situation that others feel needs to be changed, so I don't care one way or another what happens with this government or the protesters.

They should have the right to protest, and they all have the ability to make decisions that change the world for the better, but the ability to decide and act lives in the individual, not the group. Each person has to make their own choices and take responsibility for the outcome.

Being the son of someone in the military that has been over to Iraq, I think I can understand a little more why we should be there. It's funny. All the kids, except for a few, that I know who have parents in the military aren't to mad that we went to war. We understand why we had to. But what really gets on my nerves, are those kids and people that say, 'we need to bring the troops back because it's hurting military families." How would they know if it's hurting us when they aren't part of one? While, yes I believe the war could have been executed much better, I still believe we had to go to war. But that's just my opinion. You don't have to listen to me.
