So you want to Usurp the Government? Fine... then do something 70 percent of America fails regulary to do- Be active in it and vote more than just a
few times in your lifetime. Actually be apart of your community rather than just residing in it.
Remember when some of us had to sit through Civics class..recite the pledge, actually read the Constitution and the Decleration of Independence, and
actually learn what it takes to be good citizen and contributing member of your community? If not then you don't really know what its like to be a
"citizen" of anything. [unless of course you actually served in the military... I wish them Godspeed and safety in what ever they do]
This is the Revolution that America needs. America needs her soul to actually give a damn, to be motivated for causing real change, move beyond talk,
teach what it means to be an American and then walk that walk.
When you talk of the failure of the Government- you talk about the collective failure of its People to do what was constitionally mandated of that
people- To be an participant in its governance.. going beyond paying taxes, whining about special interest groups.... and ending at being
compassionate about the actual less fortunate, voicing their concerns, either by vote or petition, demanding to be educated and informed; and,
finally, to be personally accountable for thier own actions.
This IS the america that the world misses- and it's demise started with the American Populace not the puppets they willfully ignored into power.
Like it or not We as a people willfully and negiglently allowed our power to be taken away, our soul to be chained- and it didnt take Bush and
Cheney to do it all.. it's been going on way way longer than that.
"The Rugged, self sustaining, cowboy of yesterday rode into the sunset; waved off by the Corporate Yes man of Today"
Sometimes Its hard to see the answer even when it's staring you in the face.
I see all the time the bumper sticker " Of all the things I fear.. I fear my government the most". All I can say to that is: if you Fear your
government then your already paralyzed and not that big of a threat to it. It's already won, and all without firing a single shot in anger.
"people should NOT fear thier government... The government should fear Its people" -Thomas Jefferson.
