How can you debate government...if you don't know it?

I would say that you are missing the point but that would just be redundant, please reread my post.
The real question is...what ARE protestors doing? I could do more in a day by voting, writing to congress/gov, attending town hall meetings, or going to class than a protestor could do in a week. The reason for this is because we live in AMERICA and that's how this works.

As a spectator of American politics I have to ask what Ron Paul actually changed in the gov system in the past 30 years. If a person with such a message who discusses and debates with the gov on TV has not affected change neither will a letter.
Getting involved in gov does not have an affect on the system itself because the whole thing is corrupt. The individuals involved may start out with good intentions and attempt real reform, they do not last long in gov unless they themselves become part of the corrupt system.
Change must come from the bottom up with massive numbers. The demand must be for a different system or no system because the system is the problem and is under the control of corporate entities with your consent, you finance them.
