i think its more han just having informed voters, its encouraging voters to hold every politician to their word. if they promise somethign during
their campaign then they should be held to that. and i dont mean by whining about it to each other like we do already, it doesnt work and if it did
we wouldnt be having the problems we're having now.
of course we also have to encouage people to think for themselves, not something everyone is so willing to do. it is very easy to get sucked into the
vortex of party line ideologies and view everyone else with a differeing view as "the enemy" as thats what we see from our politicians, the vey
people we put there. and lets ask a question that i'd like veryone to answer. do such things work? we've been doing these things for decades now.
has it gotten us anywhere? logic tells me if you keep doing somethign and it doesnt work try something different, something new.
its more than just uninformed voters or even holding politicians accountable in a serious way. we are lazy slobs, we live like kings and take
everything we have for granted. rather than working for the things we expect from our government we simply think its going to be or should be handed
to us on a silver platter while they say "yes suh!" or "yes'm" to us. in doing so we make victims of ourselves. being uninformed is but a part
of the problem. another part is simple inaction. we can be as informed as we possibly can be but we do nothing to back up what we know and what we
really want how will anything change? of course if we even made a half hearted attempt, just by trying we'd be more informed just thorugh trial by
i wouldnt mention just fox, all media outlets have a bias and they all feed you what they want you to know or not know. there is no exception to this
rule i am aware of.
sturod i feel the government has already overstepped its boundaries in many ways, taxes being one of them. after each election we see a swelling of
the government, each new president and batch of politicians come along and add to the never ending pile of BS. it becomes more and more burdensome to
us the people, they hen have the gall to expect us to blame "the other side" for all the problems this country has and then has the nerve to ask us
to give them our votes because of some promise to make things better, the same promise so many others said before hem and yet nothing gets done.
simply put there is "US and THEM" if there is it is a us the people and tem the politicians. we the people want the same things, good education
for our children, less taxes...universally accepted ideas. i cant imagine any of us saying we dont want better education or that we want to pay more
in taxes. but guess what? they make us believe that! is it true? not in the least, they lay blame to someone else for their own actions or
inactions and then expect us to fight each other over it. i refuse to get into a argument with anyone over such things because i know that me and
that other person have common ground, soemthign those in control dotn want us to do. thats why race is constantly being brought up. what better way
to keep people divided than to make them fight over something that trully is meaningless and not really worth discussing? THEY refer to certain
people as this that or the other, not me. they use sex sexual orientation and race as dividers of us the people. they pit us against each other and
we fall for it. why? because people like to hear things they want to hear. its a simple psychological trick, say things that reenforce that people
want to hear and they'll agree with you even if its untrue. its very simple, if you make a person feel like a victim and then reenforce that idea by
constantly telling them things then they will believe that A) they really are a victim even if they are not B) you care even if you dont and more
often than not they dont care C) make them believe that only YOU can make things right for them and then never do it, or not so much they no longer
need you and D) support you without question because you've trapped them into thinking negatively. this is also known as catering to special issue
groups and politicians LOVE TO DO THAT! this is also a building up of a system that works for them and against us. i see people all the time letting
emotion and feelings cloud their judgement of our government and politicians. those who would lvoe nothing more than to really help would never run
for an office because they know what would happen, nothing would get done as others in the "good ole boy system" would make sure you dont get
anything passed them. heavan forbid we the american people should feel free. heavan forbid we should be told things like we are in control of our
own destinty than we realize. heavan forbid we be told things we need to hear. thing that ring a bell in our heads and wake us up.
bah!!! too much for now, maybe more later.
