he's not alone in awaiting her dethroning.  unfortunately, her district will send her back. let's hope we have the majority again and can take that gavel back and.....use it a little more wisely.
.....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.....

That was so beautiful...   there's a tear in my eye.  :evil:  It is truly sad how low this country has sank...   I would really love to be able to go back in time and ask the founding fathers what they thought about this debacle we now have as a government.
