I'm not sure how you can guarantee that.
Its easy, watch: "I guarantee that". See, thats how i do it.
Perhaps that is exactly what is needed.
Well, lets hear some ideas, how do we upheave the system by November?
How can you be sure that anyone is unless they have the opportunity to prove what they can do? As it stands now, both main parties have proven that
they are not capable of governing well or responsibly, otherwise we wouldn't be choosing the from lesser of two evils. I'll take an untested
uncertainty over a proven negitive any day.
The stakes are too high in these times, it would be like letting a student driver drive in a snowstorm, I'll wait til driving conditions are better,
Yes, I am.
Good for you, Im not, I wont go to Vegas unless I can afford to lose the money
So, you are comfortable with the advisors and decisions they are making now? Ya, I know. You expect Kerry to be different. I say it will just be more
of the same and nothing I have seen the Democrats say or do leads me to believe any different. A valueless coin is still valueless, no matter which
side you look at it from.
Yeah, I expect Kerry to be different, America did well under Clinton for the most part, regardless how you feel about his personal life. Kerry at
least has seen combat and knows what hes sending kids into.
Yes, if you and your sons insist on standing at the base of the hill (ie: putting your faith in the state) while the first little pebbles fall, it
could land right on you. It might not either, if you have sense enough to get out of the way, and the falling rock could reveal a vein of gold in the
mountain that no one knew was there.
Me and my son cannot help but be at the base of the hill, THE HILL IS MY COUNTRY, MY ECONOMY, MY LIVING. And once your upheaving of the government is
finished, I hope your new government is prepared to run a country as complex as the USA, and we can all partake in this wonderous vein of gold. I see
a stock market crash, a depression, probably even a civil war. Good luck assembling the different factions that make up this country into your
"avalanche of change", this country is divided on so many complex levels, there could be no unity, it would be just like Iraq if we overthrew the
government as you suggest.
The problem is, you are letting unscrupulous people do the calculations and control the schedule. They like things just like they are. Why do you
think they will bring change when that change means they lose their power?
That proves my point exactly, they will not stand to lose their power, nothing short of violent revolution, or slow deliberate change as those who are
older and more narrow minded die off.
As will your sons, unless the changes you fear take place. I'm glad the people who pioneered this nation had more courage than your attitude
displays. America is a nation of risk takers and wouldn't even be a nation otherwise. That is part of our greatness, or at least it used to be.
It still is, they fought for indepenence, they got it. All governments become corrupt, so what do you suggest, anarchy? Do we overthrow this
government at the cost of many more lives than we could imagine, for what, a devastated country? A possibly even more corrupt goverment?What courage
do you speak of? The evils my son will live under have up until this point done nothing wrong to me, I disagree with alot they have done but as an
American citizen I have never been mistreated the way I have seen governments mistreat people around the world. I want change, but I am patient, the
opportunity will come, all things change.
Frankly, you don't know me well enough to accuse me of throwing a tantrum and I haven't been a teenager in over 20 years. My political opinions have
been formed by watching the same political scams and inequities take place in both parties since the days of Nixon. Some of the same people have been
entrenched in Congress for as long as I can remember. The slow change you speak of is not happening, or if it is, it's in the wrong
Im sorry you assumed I was accusing you directly of throwing a tantrum, perhaps I worded it that way, its been 8 yrs since I've been a teenager and I
can admit I've probably thrown some tantrums since then, but anyways I guess this magical new "corrupt free" government is going to take charge and
lead us in the right direction out of sheer nobility, they will not be driven by any personal agendas, and will live to serve 'we the people'. Well
I gotta tell ya, Im sold, where do I sign up?
That has always been my intention and my duty as an American.
I salute you sir.
