Long post bear with me.
Sorry MODS didn't quite know where to put this.
The only innocents in any war would be the children; I say this because the fault for any country participating in any war is solely the fault of
adults. Now you’re going to say that’s not true, there is the government giving the order and the soldier’s following orders. I will say it
again war and suffering and all the other woes of human civilization are directly started and affected by adults.
Even every one on this site squabbling over these ridiculous topics are at fault and yah some off the posters are most likely teens and I want to lump
you all in on this also but society gives you know real power to affect change. I myself can most assuredly be included in this group of at fault
I make this rather bold statement because after reading a good number of these posts that currently call the ATS board Home. The reason is each and
every adult has their on will and choices in how their respective countries are ran. I know your saying no we don’t but I say yes you do were just
to week and worry about ourselves and our families to much to actually want to do anything about it and that is commendable even noble if we wasn’t
all screwing ourselves in the process. Take the USA for example we elect our leaders and when they turn out to be for themselves and not the people
all we do is cry and moan about how we the people aren’t being herd or were suffering because so and so is in office.
None of us go directly to our representatives or Washington and ask for answers or even impeachment. This is only true to the extent that we do
nothing about it. Some try and I commend those for their actions and I mean actions by getting off their respective @$$e$ and going out and trying to
do something about it but without the help of their fellow citizens the change they tried to bring about fails miserably. I myself included, when
protests about say… the bailout were going on (there was protests right?) all I did was email the dopes that were supposed to be representing myself
and others in my section of the state not to vote on it cause it was going to screw us and the world over, but alas they did not listen and instead of
getting off my bum and protesting about it to actually make a change I sit here and gripe on the computer and watch what everyone knew what would
happen and that is…wait for it…Economic collapse for all except the wealthy.
Until the Citizens in my own country wake up and start uniting, nut jobs like bush and co are going to get away with what their doing. We need to
unite and march on dc and protest for real laws that make a difference, quite putting in the loopholes that help the rich and screw the poor, quite
making laws that help the criminals and corporations ream the small time people that speak up for their rights according to our constitution and
invoke their first amendment right. It’s crap and we all know it and we let them get away with it cause we want to watch our TV’s play our video
games and gorge ourselves on crap we don’t really need, we take it because we don’t want to lose what we have now but want to know the truth
nothing worth having is free of risk or sacrifice. We let the media distract us into believe what ever it is their whip masters tell them to shovel
at us, we need to take back our media and hold people accountable for the crap they do, we need to stand up as one and kick the self serving bums out
of office and elect people that are indeed for the people.
