Get out more. People are mostly good. Thats why the corrupt few always get ousted.
I agree totally, I have a great fairth in peoples inate goodness... and as a bit of a social animal I've met far to many amazing peopel to think
differently. However for some reason the most dastardly alway's seem to get into the positions of real power. Regardless of how nice the flowers
appear now, if the root has become rotten then they will ultimatly pearish!
I also agree, to an extend with your other statement regarding the human side of these people, which many seem to forget. My only fear is that they
will be so conditioned so as to go along with their orders obediantly. With regard to this, the UN is a far more likely senario!
Try to think of how you, personally, are affected by the situation. Don't put it in some abstract context, like, "Oh, my freedom is being
threatened!" Try to define exactly how your freedom is being threatened. Is there some way that your life is diminished by being ruled by a
"despot?" Specifically, how?
This, I'm afraid, I cannot agree with, that is an increadbly shortsighted, deafitist attitude....it strikes of cowardice to me! Perhaps at this
presice time, they are not imposing their rule to severly upon us, but their reins are tightening! In this country along i will list a few below;
> I.D. cards, these will now certainly be introduced, what's more we're given the privalidge of paying for them..fantastic!
> New road tax system, wherby every car will be fitted with a tracking/monitering device that records exactly where you are traveling, to facilitate
you paying per-mile.
> All speed cameras are being adapted with a new device that automatically scans passing number plates to flag up any anomolies.
> The fact that sinse labour came to power they have passed more laws than during the entire history of our Government combined.
Anyway Need I continue.....
The signs are all there....slowly falling into place...
I'm sure enforced curfews, martial law, work farms and the like are considered a fairly big infringement upon my freedom, but then again, you'd
probably be we'll fed, kept in fairly good working health, and I'm sure they would provide you with somewhere 'safe' and warm to sleep at night,
do you not agree?
And to loneGunMan, I agree with pretty much 95% of what you had to say, especially concernign the next president and the shift to the Left...I saw a
video recently, and I'm sorry but i can't remember who it was that was speakign, but he said the following;
"the powers that the president now has are not their solely for the use of this current president, they are to aid for the next president.......(he
then paused awkwardly, just for a second and said)...and the president after that"
It was weird the way he said it, made me think....
