===Nothing can be done. I have a creeping feeling that people just don't care enough to get involved anymore...just as long as they can go about driving their Mercedes and believing that everything is OK.
Truely though, I wonder if we have let big business, etc. grow to the point where we have no control anymore. How many people do you think would stand up against Corporations, govt., etc. if they had a gun pointed in their face? I really want to know............

Perhaps shut down the CIA, FBI, Scret Service, etc... All the governemtn agencies. We should have people vote on laws, not the supreme court, so that the people decide what they want. I guess this could be advanced into a real political system, based on this. (I dont want to think anymore to actually type all this down ).

I see a race going on, The powers that be are trying to take away all our rights before we the people can band together to expell them. I am sure most are aware that the supreme court has become corrupt, many senators and congressmen are corrupt and that they are pasing laws that are against the will of the people. What actions can we the people take to swiftly remove these people from office ? I think the first that needs to be removed is any corrupt High Court Judge, for they control the Law and will overturn any lawsuits against the government. We can no longer stand by and allow corrupt people to control our destiny. What can we do to remove them first and then the others asap ?
I don't know if I'm one of the brightest minds here, but I'll offer a recipe
for returning the US to a position of respectablity.
1.Ask ourselves what this life is really all about.
Turn off the television and radio. Bankrupt
the controlled media through disuse.
Reject the debased "popular culture."
Create among the populace a vested
interest in the the fate and welfare of the
country. At the same time, make the
populace more accountable for the course
the nation takes. Eliminate the professional
politician. Encourage innovation.
discourage an elaborate and inefficient
bureaucracy. Make the government
more flexible and adaptable. Eliminate
2.Create a state of true representative government.
Make votes unbuyable. Make voting and participation
in some aspect of running the country mandatory
for all adults.
3. Have a policy of neutrality in world affairs. No, we
don't owe Israel our eternal allegiance.
4.Place an emphasis on sustainable growth, rather
than allow our country to be plundered by those
who seek to maximize personal gain at the price
of our country's welfare. Return to the gold standard.
5.Eliminate economic speculation as the primary
factor that controls our economy. Make tangible
products and services (not global catastrophies)
the pillars on which our economy rests.
6. Make a real education a priorty for our young.
Emphasize useful knowledge and skills as a
priority, rather than just feel-good fluff for
"minorities" and guilt for the White middle class.
Foster creativity, healthy competitiveness and
a sense of a cultural destiny that goes beyond
the next consumerist fad.
7. An indefinite moratorium on all unskilled, non
English speaking immigration. We ought to
fix our country, rather than allowing people
to import third-world misery to our shores.
Thereafter, immigration should be strictly
regulated. Make the National Guard actually
guard the nation, rather than fight a war
for pirates and Israel. It is usually said by those
in defense of weak immigration laws that
illegal aliens only take jobs that Americans
don't want anyway. Why is it usually taken
for granted that those jobs will always bring
wretched conditions and low pay? Those are
not inherently natural for any type of employment.
Rather, they are the results of a social structure
that makes them so by maximizing profits for
the few at the price of misery for the many.
Who said that just because you pick fruit for
a living, you ought to be living a degraded
life? On the other hand, there is the problem
of the many poor and ignorant people on this
planet (many of whom have been so for generations)
who continue to reproduce at an alarming rate,
thus diluting the quality of life for most of the
rest of us. I have never heard of armed people
going through impoverished areas to force those
hopeless masses to breed the way they do.
So, in that situation, there should be moral
responsibility on the part of business and social
responsibility on the part of workers. If they
met halfway, we would all benefit.
9. We should all be always aware of the reality
of mortality, rather than having it abstracted
and turned into entertainment (or another marketplace)
That could all be in the future. The actions of Americans
during the next election will be telling. For which evil will
we vote? Do we really dare to take our government into
our own hands, or might it be too painful to miss the game
or the favorite show?
Other than that, I am open to suggestions.
