"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." ~ Thomas Jefferson "People should not fear their government. Government should fear their people." ~ V in V for Vendetta The people have come to be afraid for their welfare if they stand against the governmental bureaucracy that has become what now leads the people. They know that if they try to stand up against any form of tyranny that they will be shot by the police force and military that has sword to protect and defend the constitution and liberties of the people, not suppress them.

Yet another thread that just succeeds in whining about problems but doesn't pose any solutions as usual. Um...ok let's all march on Washington and forcibly remove people..yea ok.
Then what if you don't like the next batch you gonna have a third revolution and so on and so forth? All the tools that you need to bring change have already been given to you but instead of talking about those you just throw up your hands and say how bad it is and hey let's march on Washington.

Other people and entities are making decisions that gravely affect us and they are not even politicians. They OWN the politicians. Constitutional freedoms you say? There are always ways around those and they are finding them one after another.
. . .
They have nothing but time and it never really matters in the long run, they make up the rules, the ground lost and then some. This is only a game of life and death to us. We perish while they live to play another day. We are all being fooled, I think. Fooled into thinking this is some kind of political and ideological difference that divides us and we busy our selves fighting over it tossing a baton back and forth every four years. That is just the outside game. The show. What we have is the wealthy manipulating and "owning" the poor and the rest of us from the hollows and caverns and dark enclaves of DC, on golf courses where conversations are private - as they've always done, since the beginnings of man and civilization.
