    Brass Tacks

    Let's get down to brass tacks, here: When all is said and done, how many of you have faith enough in our current system and in the American people to think we are going to turn this country around?

    I think we are so far removed from a Constitutional Republic that we aren't ever going to get back to that. The patriots amongst us have already been labelled terrorists. We've got a socialist and his minions in the WH and half the country put 'em there. And most Americans are historically, civically, and constitutionally illiterate. It would take generations of patriot fighters to reclaim the Republic and I don't see it.

    Furthermore, for the most part, the American people are sheep, or are on the gov't dole, one way or another, and they are never gonna rise up to take back the country, because they don't even see the problem. Even if they do eventuallly wake up, it'll be too late. The end of the "American Experiment" has already been predicted by several historical figures, some 150 years ago ("When the citizenry figures out they can vote themselves largesse from the treasury, the experiment is over"). Isn't this exactly where we are?

    Finally, the "puppet masters" behind the curtain just won't allow it to happen. Hell, if things really got out of hand, the corporate fascists aided by their lackey progressive politicians would simply crush the country economically and force everyone to their knees. The Federal Reserve could do this anytime they were so directed.

    My admittedly cynical, pessimistic thoughts. Feel free to give me reasons for optimism.

    Yours thoughts.

    To be honest I think we have two chances. Slim and none. I hope I am proven wrong.

    Yes, it is a wee bit scary with those idiots in Congress and the socialist in the White House. Hopefully things will hold together long enough to vote out the scum this November. The "leaders" in Congress have shown their true colors. The conservative voters better come out in force now (the Tea Party) and be full strength by the November elections. Our votes have to over come the voters at the welfare trough and other public assistance venues.

    I wasn't really aware of the Progressives until I started watching Fox and Glenn Beck. Ugh, Progressives on both sides of the isle! We have to be very careful about who we plan on voting for this November. I've always felt that there should be another "slot" on the ballot - NONE OF THE ABOVE.

    I'm afraid that Obama will use a crisis to issue a bunch of Executive Orders to "lock down" the country and screw us to the wall. Did you see Glenn Beck the other day when he showed what executive orders JFK issued? That's a lot of control over the country.

    Just my 71 year old thoughts......

    I hope you are not talking of Al Gore...he invented everlasting life....

    JJ...have you ever been out of this country? I have seen more sheeps in Australia than over here...and I am not talking of 4 legged animals either. Here, most people live and talk politics and there were the good ole days when you're either a DemocRAT or a Republican. Now we got conservatives and independents. This country is better or the best amongst I have ever been. Most people are patriotic and love this country very much...Do not lose hope. When you lose hope, you might as well be 6 feet under the ground. Lighten up...

    I just want to add..."thank God"...but I need to go quietly before avidshooter kick me out....

    AMEN. I can't wait for the day to come when we all live in eternal peace in His presence.
