Even so, things won't change until the vast majority of Americans actually start noticing what's going on and putting their efforts towards throwing
out the system, not the people.
We see it. We recognize it. We understand it. We don't # on the flag for whom others have died defending it.
We vote. You may think it does't count but that is merely a cop out.
The votes are cast between those who have it and those who want what they have.
If Our Dear Leader wasn't promising everything for free, do you think this bum would even have a chance of being relected? People are voting for what
the can get...not what they can create.
What are you talking about?
The vast majority of Americans are clueless as to what goes in politics and the general running of their country. If that was not the case, then you
would not be in this situation.
YOU may be aware of what's going on, and your social circle may be and perhaps your family or even your small community of like minded individuals.
But the masses? My god how could you ever claim they were in the know?
Obama actually doesn't promise things for free, his actions clearly indicate he wants you to pay mroe as a middle class American than his rich buddies
And I did not say that voting did not count, not once.
Don't tell me people don't have a chance. If that is so, it is because they have created the atmosphere of wanting someone else taking care of them
or getting it by any means possible except dedication and work. Education is there if it is desired. Grants, loans and scholarships are available.
What is wrong with working towards a goal instead of just wanting the goal.
Again, never said they didn't. The people are the ones that will initiate this change, but not by attempting to work within the current system, but
by removing the chess pieces and changing the game entirely.
The game you currently play has been designed, for decades, to make sure that you don't have a say, and regardless of how much "influence" you think
you have, you have none, because you aren't part of those 400 families.
A goal is just a marker. The journey of life is getting there. When people get their Cadillacs by dealing crack, the car comes easier. Immediate
gratification at the cost of life to others. That is why there is no self-respect these days. People don't work towards anything. Don't want to
work at McDonalds because it doesn't pay well? Getting food stamps is better? They don't mind the resentment of people behind them who worked for
their food while they get it free? Where is their self-respect?
So you are saying that the poor are to blame for these problems your country has then? Clearly there are those who take advantage of your social
programs, but there's a bigger picture of how you got here in the first place.
I understand people needing help and I give a lot. They don't want to be on the streets begging to feed their children. Yet there are people who have
generations living on food stamps. They are just collecting the money without having to stand on the street. Same thing. One is ashamed. One is
The generations of folks on food stamps are there because of the lack of educational among other opportunities that they have had access to over
decades. The ever shrinking middle class, coupled with the greed of the Gov along with the banking cartels have created this environment.
So that me and you, or you and your neighbor, or you and the homeless crack dealer down the street can fight about about non-issues, instead of
focusing on the actual problems that put you in this situation.
I will leave it to you to figure who which is which.
This might help. Link
That has nothing to do, with anything we are discussing. Just more sensationalist journalism. This happens every day, in every country on the
That behavior is the result of a society that encourages violence and programs young children to enjoy it, and propagate the idea that violence solves
They do the same thing with sex.
The system is the issue, not the people caught in the middle of it.
