Why should the liberals come up with answers for Social secruity, health care, Iraqi war, gas prices, etc. The Republicans control all the offices right now. Whatever the liberals bring to them, the republicans would just shot their ideas down anyway or use them and take credit for it.
Liberals are smart, just sit back and let the republicans continue to dig their own grave. Since they have been in office, its been one corruption after another, one lie after another, and the American people are beginning to see that. There are corrupt liberals to, but it is the republicans that continue to take the hits.
So liberals just need to keep quite, sit back and just watch the show. Do nothing, eventually America will get tired of republicans poor excuses for their own failures and mistakes. Thats why the Republicans keep asking "why don't the Democrats have any answers to these problems", its because its not a Democrats problem until they take control again. boy, how we miss that ol Bill Clinton. What great times we had.

Remember--the liberals are only part of the Democratic party. Like you said, there are corrupt liberals, but sadly there is no difference between the rest of the party and the Republicans. Our country has lost much of it's greatness over the past two decades and most of us still don't know it, and the rest don't care.

Exactly. We need a NEW government. Not just a change of parties. All these people in the government are sell outs. And they are brining down America.

Actually, the government we have in the Constitution of the United States of America is a pretty darn good one; it's only flaws are the same ones shared by most philosophies and ideologies - the human element. But until the Matrix becomes a reality, it seems eliminating this fatal flaw is just a pipe dream.

RetinoidReceptor is indeed correct about sell outs in all political parties, but until there is a form of regulated capitalism, which would go a long way toward the betterment of our society by curtailing ramped greed , private interest groups can continue to bribe the noblest of politicians to tred the paved road of ‘best intensions’.

Our problems today are not inherent to the political system; rather, our political system has become a tool to the root of the corruption.


“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country…corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is registered in a few hands and the republic is destroyed.” – Abraham Lincoln, 1864.


The quote above shows an early interpretation of the real nightmare, while the following quote should help solidify the horror of which President Lincoln spoke.


"Fascism should more properly be called Corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." - Benito Mussolini


Should Liberals just sit back and watch the show?

The quick, noble answer is no, of course not. Such a hasty answer, however, poses deeper questions in ‘what should or can be done?’ and ‘how might those things be accomplished?’ in light of the so called ‘political atmosphere’ that has been created, without becoming damned by tactics of ‘Neo-McCarthyists/Neo-Cons’ .

Edmund Burke said all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. I would ask, what can we do, but use those Constitutional freedoms still guaranteed to us as concerned inheritants of that great document? This very thread of discussion is a very small example of such freedom in exercise; perhaps a first step into brave and uncharted territory for some, but I submit it is a necessary step that all socially conscious, liberal thinking men and women must take; one that may lead to many other such steps of educated outspokenness.

Or … we could sit back and do nothing but watch, I suppose. It sure beats what’s on television and apathy for all things concerning politics and civil rights is apparently rather vogue these days. Besides, it is easier to let allegedly more educated and wealthier individuals make decisions for you, as they certainly have your best interests in mind. Why get involved? It’s all too big for anyone to do anything about. One person can’t make a difference, no matter how right they are.

Sun Tzu suggested that inaction is, in fact, an action and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stands as stirring proof that one person can indeed make a difference in this world, providing one has the motivation to become involved. Ideas, coupled with the courage to express and communicate them, are powerful tools available to all of us. It really comes down to a simple choice of acceptance or denial.

Choose wisely.
