From what I have observed, it seams that Americans do not want to help themselves. Or maybe it's the opposite, and that is all that they want, is to
help themselves. Obviously this country is not heading in the right direction. This is evidenced by the continuing downward spiral of the economy. But
does that deter Americans? Hell no, they are going to keep on electing big Govt., corporate puppets, and religious zealots.
It is just mind bottling that they continue to vote for Romney, Gingrich or Santorum. What do they hope to accomplish?
Apparently they are not interested in seeing things get better.
"Hey, lets vote for the same scumbags that have been running stuff and hope for a different outcome."
From this point on, I am done with the US. It will get what it deserves.

It's called freedom, Sunshine. People are free to be as smart or as supid as they want to be. If you don't like it, you're free to vote for
somone else, free to call those voters stupid, free to move, free to stay.
Free to rant.
The good thing about America is that it still has Americans living here.
I don't call that freedom, I call it willful slavery to lies masquerading as truths for the purpose of entertaining and distracting people. If
that's what Freedom looks like, then I want none of it. I'd rather live in a country full of smart and wise intellects who I would be proud to call
my brothers than a country full of paranoid schizoids who want nothing less than excess, who are proud of destroying the earth, who are not conscious
and mindful of their decisions. Born in slavery and head first into a life filled with fear and doubts that will follow them until they die.
Are you free to collect rain water? Free to live off the land and be tax free? Free to drive a car without a licence? Free to trade food for goods
and services? Free to separate yourself from the state? Free to get help from a doctor for being sick instead of profit? Free to call people or
chat on the internet without being monitored? Free to download music without being arrested? Free to sit on a street corner and beg for money? Free
to run down the street naked? Free to buy a plane and fly it? Free to think outside the box without being judged? Free to # a guy up the ass? Free
to die if you want too? Free to smoke Marijuana? Free to snort some coke!?
I could keep this up all night long. Your definition is totally screwed up and your only defense to that is that these rights would impede other
people's freedom, which defines the entire concept that "Freedom is an illusion".
No.. you're free to do exactly what they say and to be exactly who they expect you to be.
Go to school, study hard, make good grades, buy a car, attend university, buy a house, get a wife, have some kids, pay off your mortgage in 20 years,
pay for your kid's college, midlife crisis, retire at 60 when you're to old to enjoy life and die in a nursing home because it's too hard for your
kids to actually care for their parent who worked so hard at giving them what he was told they needed.
You are nothing but a number, a gear in the machine and you are not a necessity; you are very disposable.
Your vote doesn't count if you're an individual, it is forfeit for the nominee which has the most corporate sponsor is the one that will win. This
proves how little freedom you actually have. Voting has nothing to do with individuals since individuality doesn't exist within the confines of your
system. You are not free to think or act as an individual, everything which would consist of you being different and thinking for yourself is made
illegal. Most people cannot see this because most people are willfully blind.
I can already hear the patriots reading this in anger shouting "Don't you dare say that about my freedoms!".
What a waste of human intellect..
