I understand what you're saying. But not everyone who supports someone other than Ron Paul does so because of the Party. Most of us actually disagree with his policies. I gave Ron Paul a sincere consideration and HE makes me a non-supporter, not anything else.

See the thing is this. People LIKE the system. They do not want to change the system. They just want to change their place IN that system. They want to be the one's who are rich, the one's who are powerful, who are famous, popular, celebrities.
Greed for money, greed for power are human instincts. They are innate. We are, "born this way". Very few of us have the capacity to physically fight off this urge, to control it, to deny it.

As an American I believe that the America of the 1950's is well and gone. And on purpose. America failed for one reason. The citizens had too much power and say in their country. Those who covet power want all the power. And they found a way to get it.

It seems the more we get abused the more we cling to our abuser. This country reminds me of a battered house wife. What do you do when YOU want the abuse to stop but everyone else is fine with it??? Go down with the ship? Well, the ship is going down, and we with it. Because we,collectively, don't have the balls to leave that prick and start a new life.
