And, for the record, I have never stood on any street, holding any sign, in my life.
Can we ever hope to take it back? Maybe. But never like this.
No. The point was to compare that atmosphere to the current and to suggest that we are again at that level of separation.
There is a group in America that makes lots of demands for themselves, but they don't do anything to the benefit of society or each other or America. They are selfish people and they care not for their country, but their own vanities and pocketbooks.
Time has come to thin the herd.
We can not change this country simply by hanging out on the street with signs.
Labeling people who want to collect welfare checks, and not work as the extreme left demonstrates to me a profound misunderstanding of those you see as your enemies. It is the lazy who do not want to work, not the idealistically driven extreme left. The lazy are perfectly willing to collect on the largess of both sides of the political divide. Believing lazy people to be your enemies on the left only undermines your ability to truely confront them. The extreme left is as intelligent and as driven as those on the extreme right. And never doubt that so many of those who proclaim conservatism also accept those handouts.
I'm speaking of the people on the extreme left that want to collect welfare checks, not work and spend this country into oblivion with other peoples money.
A debate with Obama, Romney, one tea party activist and one occupy activist. I'm sure it could take no more than a couple of weeks for both sides to put forth suitable representatives. We could have Marr and Limbaugh moderate.
My hope is that a third party/independent candidate will at least demand a spot in the debates. Better yet, there would be a 10% representation in congress against the Dems/Reps in 2016
