short but good
« on: July 30, 2009, 12:01:05 AM »

i'd be willing to bet that more military have read their constitution, than have politicians.  bet we even understand it!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I saw that on O'Reilly the other night, I think there's another one, too, somewhere else.  The People may be starting to really wake up, we can only hope.
