from here to Venezuela
« on: January 05, 2010, 11:45:02 AM »
it is always fascinating to me that certain people become leaders over what would seem the common sense and best interest of the people.  how did Germany get a Hitler, or Venezuela, a Chavez.  the answer is that they didn't elect a monster.  they elected "change". 
i find it hard to believe that the far left is going to sacrifice itself on the alter of the progressive agenda.  power is a stronger drug than ideology.

be sure to read to the bottom.
.....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 would like to dig up George and the fellow founding fathers and see what there reaction to the current situation would be.  Until we elect people with actual morals and ethical standards to public office, this train of abuses and excess will continue.
