We are waking up to something more than self and material gain and capitalism and consumerism and national pride... and the old bullcrap isn't
cutting it anymore because it was all a lie to begin with.
So getting educated,getting a job to buy the things we need in order to live and support families is now "old bullcrap"? Its no longer true?
Memories of blissful ignorance may be pleasant and warm sometimes, but they are just memories.
So the allied powers victory in WW1, WW2, WW3 (aka cold war) never happened?
Our world is at stake here... and we have barely enough time to save it
Is time running out? I didn't seem to get the memo
America is nothing like it once was
I agree,it continues to get better and will only get better the rate at which will be determined by the voters
I can't believe we're still trying to pretend like all of this sterile pre-packaged pre-determined living is what anybody had originally had
in mind when revolting against the crown.
You're absolutely right, they could not forsee how great the future was
how can we pretend like we're 100 percent certain that our history buffs aren't painting a bit of gloss on a dull and much less romantic view
of the motivations behind the formation of the USA?
There are libraries full of history, you get the fun of deciding what is true and what is not
We don't know much about anything, and not only are we dumbed down to the point of madness
Watch who your talkin to fella
but we're being severely domesticated to the point where people rarely ever go out anymore unless it's to get drunk or laid
I disagree and know many people who feel the same way. BTW whats wrong with gettin laid?
and everything our daily monotonous lives are about right now are based on shallow greed and hollow fears...
Maybe you should get out more and do something you like doing and stop feeling afraid
What if I don't want to buy or see your product?
Then don't. Nobody is telling you to
Do I even have a choice?
You always have a choice
What if I don't wanna work my life away?
There are millions of tax payers that are more than happy to pay for your lifestyle. Will that make you happy?
What if I don't want the state or some snobby eletist school to educate me or my (nonexistent) kids on their narrow yet arrogantly
over-confident view of my world?
Teach yourself, many people do home schooling
What if I just want to be LEFT ALONE to do and interact with the world as I see fit?
You are free to step outside anytime you feel like
America is the people, not the government. Love the people, but only tolerate the government as long as you can directly influence the
direction it goes.
I agree 100%, and you will be directly influencing the government this november
Our whole country was always and still is based on hypocrisy.
Please clarify and don't worry so much. You forgot how much power you have. The stage is set for you, how will you act?
