Not yelling - trying to awaken the sheep of our country. We need leadership. We need to follow through on our duties as citizens and act for our country, when our government is not.
Hey "CAPS":

It's: a"cowardly" people...
(a"coward" displays "cowardice")
Agreed "the country needs an enema"can we first agree on: "where to stick the nozzle?"
I say "Pelosi" first then she can "do" Reid...

I hope that other americans are as angry as i am, and inspired and motivated as well, that there are other americans out there feeling the same way.

and i personally am unaffected by most of these recent and soon-to-be changes. Thus, i would assume, those affected must be equally or more angry than i am.

let's pull together as our history has it, and reinstate a government that is working and will continue to work for the people. Not working for themselves.

the automatic pay raises that congress granted themselves in 1989 should have opened our eyes. However, when our people have money in their pockets, they don't care about too much else.

now that our personal lives will be affected, our people cannot be blind anymore. This has to open their eyes. And if not, that's just sad and pathetic. Those people are clearly not the people that fought and died for our country, and probably wouldn't if given the opportunity. I would hope this is not the majority of our citizens.

act. Act now. And act without hesitation.

our leaders and lawmakers have a higher income than the majority of our populus. How exactly does that make sense again? that is some audacity.

we've had enough. And will not tolerate any more. At least i won't. And i hope my fellow americans understand the urgency and importance of us as citizens, to fulfill our duties and act in our people's best interest. When have we become a complacent, lazy, uncaring, unkind society?

it's time for change. Not obama-style change. But sweeping change.

people talk, but do nothing. Talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words. Be angry and come together as one people!

So you decry the so-called "evil manipulation tactics" of the right then say: "hey...why don't we do it too?"
How marvelously "frank" of you to admit such blatant partisan hypocrisy


Why did you put the term "evil manipulation tactics" in quotes? I never used that, or anything close to that.

Also, I can see you still havent read past the headline, or you would have seen that this isn't a criticism of the 'right'. If anything, it's a critique of the left (I've been quite clear about that), but in actuality, its a critique of the whole facade of left and right.

LOL. The democrat's policies in no way resemble anything even beginning to approach 'Socialism".

I'd suggest a political science course.


Now you should know, having taken some political science courses, definitions of "isms" depend on where you are standing, what sort of prism one uses. I have seen this great effort of liberals to take worse case examples of socialism to seperate itself for the strict definitions of socialism to say "hay we are not socialists strictly speaking" when telling the hard left to remain out of sight. The dems do have their hard left "Marxist model" for everything types and thier dupy "Hay we can read the bill after we pass it" usefull idiots, not to mention their freaks on a leash hard biting ramrods they let sound off here and there to remind the right that it could be worse.

And so to the TP has some that believe anything that looks like socialism is socialsm while others in the rep party are more "sympathetic" to the plight of man. lol

Whats going to be hell on earth for the left is if the TP ends up being a strong force in the congress after the next election. Boy that will sure clear the air! We cant have a good fight in congress untill the ideologues on both sides of the question get the gloves off and go at it. Get these middle managers out of the way. Get into some real political trench warfare over issues.

While you are drifting WAY off topic, I feel this needs addressing. Can you point out what 'entitlement programs' trump ACTUAL defense spending?

Sure, cut welfare, fine. It's still a drop in the bucket when it comes to defense spending. And putting SS into 'entitlement programs' is retarded, as people pay INTO it.


SS has many programs other than a retirement program. Sure folks pay in but there are many that have access to SS funds that dont pay in and those that do pay in have access to far more than they ever payed in. No one wants to look at these areas for fat certainly not any counter dem "TP" party. When it is discovered how so many have made so much from this "war on poverty" it will make the military industrial complex suckfish look like a little minnow.

Now there is the lefts "TP" at work. We have been hearing this for years from nightly news to the college campus and certainly on ATS.....that our military spending is so great as to hobble our efforts toward a "war on poverty" at home. And frankly to so many this idea looks like what it is....a desire to dump money into social programs at the expence of the military or anything else where money is spent on something other than socialy geared domestic spending. Not only that but the mantra has a judgmental ring as to suggest that military spending is moraly wrong anyway. We hear about the military industrial complex as an evil driving force behind military spending but we never hear about how much social spending ends up in the pockets of international drug dealers and other people of intrest that profit off our.....perpetual poverty cycle complex or wealth distribution gravy train. Oh and it is a gravy train.

Unfortunately, it still appears not a single one of you (other than, perhaps, the Old American-thanks guy!) grasps that my OP and subsequent posts have been a criticism of THE DEMOCRATS, not the 'tea party' or the Republicans.
