Doing something about it.
. . . he knows all about the 'conspiracy' theories around 9/11 (says he's 85% convinced it was an inside job), and how the big banks run everything.
In other words, we should stop fantasizing about parties and left/right ideologies, stop making excuses for a politician just because we voted for them, be willing to denounce that elected official if necessary, and start judging people according to their actions, policies, and the company they keep.

ANOK, I actually thought that you might have noticed my many posts and threads that already promote those ideals. Oh well.
I'm not the center of the universe, or the focus of anyone's attention. But, I try, in my small way, to contribute to the cause. I'm a 'Progressive' and also a 'Democratic Socialist', and have starred MANY of your posts.

Blind allegiance to party is why Bush was able to do his terrible things, and why Obama is able to do the same now. I have yet to see a sea of protest signs that say "Obama lied, people died", but that phrase was ubiquitous during Bush's term.
