And how many of thoese voters who chose an oil baron are surprised at the price of gas.

I thought this report of GW Bush's speach interesting:

-------------------------------
Bush said citizens must choose "between two competing visions" for their future.

One, he said, pursues representative government, integration into the world community and freedom's transformative power for individuals.

"The other seeks to roll back the democratic progress of the past two decades by playing to fear, pitting neighbor against neighbor and blaming others for their own failures to provide for the people," he said. "We must make tough decisions today to ensure a better tomorrow."
---------------------------
What's ironic is he was telling this to the people in South America - specifically Venezuela. Pity that statement didn't get included in the last US presidential campaign...

Nothing lasts forever.
I was surprised how strident my previous post sounded.
There will be a backlash against corporate fascism but like oil prices it will be one step forward and two steps backward, benefits for the working poor will be racheted a little one direction but reversed in the short run.

Yes the ignorant people will always fall for the scoundrel yelling for God and patriotism. However I personally believe that the recent elections have been grossly modified with special Diebold Republican software for the last 6 years and the US population is not as stupid as our fearless leader.

The similarity of a dictator crowning himself the God of Rome with the Bush Cabal is striking. If the Cabal has learned anything from history they must realize that they will face a serious stabbing in the rotunda unless they eliminate Congress. This is where the shadow government will come in handy to a dictatorial regieme.

If the takeover goes that far the truth of recent treasonous acts will never see the light of day.

Like junk food being reminisent of real food the Bush administration is virtually reminiscent of actual liberty.

Have another freedom cracker with mad cow cheese, its good for you.

George is doing it, be it right, wrong or indifferent, More than can be said for the 90's. Perhaps many of the problems we see now are a result of "let it go, nobody will notice" which probably started near the end of Bush 1.
Citizens of this great country all have the same choice; be a semi-slave, a serf or get busy and partake of the rewards awaiting you.

Can't wait for many of you to find out just how big a problem the CIA and even part of the State Department have been. Career politicians who do not want the ole' apple cart upset.
Wait to see how GWB has been fighting this scenario for the past several years.

The Rev. Jim Wallis, author of God's Politics : Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It, said that in a meeting he was attending, everyone was sitting around bewailing how the country had gone wrong and how powerless they all felt. One person said, "We just don't have any strong leaders like Martin Luther King anymore. What we need is someone like him." At which point, a young black woman stood up and blew her stack at the whole group. She ended her heated comments by saying, "YOU are the leaders you are waiting for! Don't just sit there and whine! Get busy!"

You can't just sit around and "let George do it." George is doing it. That's what's wrong.

Easy to say, Peace.

Lack of ethics in politics has been a problem for a very long time.

I agree with Peter, I, too, want America back. It no longer belongs to the people. Isn't that why they have the right to bear arms? For many years I had hoped for a peaceful revolution but those in power only looked upon us as 'losers' and 'suckers' and 'chumps'.

Times have changed and now the baby boomers are actually the power base of the nation. Its time to use that power instead of squandering it on drugs, video games, t.v. and gambling. Sad to say, if change is to occur, it will be the result of the actions of a small group of people who really do care.

My hope is that when these people rise up, the majority of Americans will join them.

As to the title of this thread: Peter, I have to disagree. America was one of the greatest ideas humans ever came up with. If you live there, speaking as a Canadian, I will tell you just how fortunate you are. You have vast wealth--incredibly vast. That it is not shared as equally as maybe it should be (IMO) is something for y'all to work on. BUT, at least you can do that there. Many places all yad get is a piece of lead in your skull delivered by some government sonuvabitch with a rifle. Do bad things happen there? Yes, they do. Do you have the freedom to do something about it? Yes, you do. Peter, go fix the problem. Find like-minded people and change the way your country is. Get back the idea of responsible government--make the bastards see that they are responsible to the electorate and every single individual that lives in a country most citizens of the world can only dream about living in. I know there are faults. Hell, YES there are faults. Many of them egregious, wrong, ugly. FIX them.

The creater of this thread is ridiculous.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, " The report of America's death has been greatly exaggerated."

This Sunday morning, I awoke to an America that is very much alive, vibrant, and where people are free to go to church if they want or not.

The creator of this thread is apparently a very unhappy and lonely person who really should try to find something more fulfilling in his life rather than dream up this kind of crap on a folk music web forum.

In other words, I can't help but laugh my ass off at some of the far left wing mentality that hangs out here, like the sorry ass who created this thread.

Dead is dead.
Expect; the continuing micromanagement of sexual behavior, dumbed down education of the masses, centralized control of media, further lost causes of war adventures in the name of God and Country for weapon manufacturers and their cousins, the ownership of America by the tenth of 1%, the "absorbtion" theft of pensions and social security, the continuation of illegal drug cartels and the massive Congressional lobby of the Pharmaceutical Corporations, unaffordable health care, unaffordable fuel, unaffordable homes,

and the new quarantined society.

Do not expect the pendulum of power to ever swing back toward the needs of the people. Yes the power elite will seemingly disappear and weather the coming storm in their bunkers but the people will not regain half of what has been lost in the last 30 years. The fight for equality will be overtaken by a fight for survival.

IN the long run people will willingly trade any remaining freedom for the priviledge of regaining electric power and food from the state.

This sounds harsh but remember the thread I started 5 years ago "Why America will lose the War" and see how everything has transpired as predicted.

GUEST, THAT was funny.

Richard Bridge, all the taxpayers would be deceased too. Why is it 'DEceased' and not just 'ceased'. 'De' usually means the opposite (like when you deflower somebody you make them not flowered anymore), which would make the dead all un. I'm an American and I'm pretty sure I have not fallen off my perch. I just get quiet sometimes.

Also, ask a sample population from a other countries. They'll probably tell you that the dead aren't as irritating as we Americans usually are.

Ethically, the United States government has been moribund for some time now. Under the aegis of the Bush administration, the death-rattle is almost deafening.

As the "moral leader of the world," methinks that title has long since moved elsewhere. To be a "moral leader" requires that one have a moral or two. And to lead, one need remember that people are like a strand of spaghetti. It's far more effective to lead it than it is to push it.
