Well no thank you. I dont feel like getting killed today. This isnt the boston tea party. The tea party was a protest not a forceful ousting of the
president of the united states. You are right about one thing. power in numbers, But not the way your thinking. Your vote and protest's in numbers is
a much better tool. But we will need many To accomplish the change needed at this point. Mob mentality is not the answer and it never will be.
Thank God, I was beginning to think I was the only sane person posting here. If more Americans would spend an hour a day for about two weeks just
reading about how are Government works, learn the names of their states Represenatives and get a grasp of how legislation works how to find their
candidates or represenatives voting record rather than choose him because he represents change, actually get registered to vote, get involved in the
process, etc,. the more of that we did the more those elected would be apprehensive screwing with a voter base that actually knows how the process
works. All they know now is the typical American voter doesnt know jack and is easily duped because we appear so damn apathetic.
We appear apathetic because WE ARE. We bitch and moan about how esoteric our News Media has become but that doesn't stop us from shutting off the TV
encouraging their ratings to drop which affects their bottom line. Nope we just sit and watch more Hollywood Rehab Candidates rather than demand the
Honesty of our Republican Candidates.
We Sweep in the Democrats and watch them give themselves another raise and all go on vacations before hammering out an energy bill when the country is
in Crisis, and that one I blame the Democrats for. If they all are part of the Problem, no one says we can't vote every single incumbent out and
start fresh while at the same time sending the strongest voters message in the history of these United States. One that goes, we have had enough and
we are NOT going to take it anymore. That their Job isn't about going in a well off Attorney or Businessman and coming out a filthy rich statesman
who has never done more than his constituents paid him for and a lot less than we deserved.
That, YES, we really WILL Boot every single one of your corrupt greedy, immoral, un-ethical dishonest asses out of office if WE don't come first!
The next time you forget you work for US and not the special interests and the lobbyist's , you are putting all of your jobs in jeopardy, not just
the bad ones but all of you is you piss us off this bad again.
But all this talk about America being everyones emotional tampon has only made us give up on ourselves so stop it.
Stop whining about Bush and just tolerate his last months in office and you will see who ever it is that gets in will most likely be better just by
having a new puss to look at and some fresh material for the likes of leno and letterman. You would be surprised to find out that Obama won't turn
us into another Muslim State and McCain won't be a damn thing like Bush merely because McCain's got his own ego, his own opinions and am certain he
is more fond of his Ideas and Opinions over a Passing President no one wants to be anything like including John McCain. Is it any wonder why the
leaders of this country would have to entertain such drastic measures to get Americans to stand as one by allowing some tragic event to get us to wake
up to a common enemy when every single one of us thinks he or she knows more than the next truther, or Republican\, or Democrat, or Atheist, or
Christian, or Jew, or Black or White?
Lets face it people, as divided as we are on a day to day basis it is a miracle we get anywhere at all much less America! As sad a state of affairs
she is in I will still say I wouldn't want to be anywhere else and she is stilll worth a kind word or two every once in a friken while and while some
of you whine and moan about things that are done as done, she is still worth dying for to me and at least,, Ill say it again AT LEAST worth paying
better attention to with a wise and intelligently decided VOTE come this November
