The Late response

Yes I am a slacker in the blog world

A comment, the only comment, on my last post

Why do you stay here if it is such a failing, miserable place full of self-centered, money grubbing people? Are the Flickr pictures posted beside your blog those of your child or grandchild? Are you raising a child in this “horrible” country? And do you really think New York City is a true representation of the US? I advise you to get out of the bars and big cities and talk to real people like me! It would open your bleary ‘Saturday a.m. at the bar’ eyeballs to a bit more reality than you are currently being exposed to! Good luck in finding that reality and a bit less to look down your nose about! Erika Collins

I don’t leave, because there is no place to go that Big Brother doesn’t have a hand. I’ve considered New Zealand, which is how I found Tom Wilson’s post, but I don’t see much of an improvement in government. I do see some hope, but it is an uphill battle. Ron Paul’s recent efforts and the ground swell around him has given me hope that people are waking up to the world around them.

One must realize what is going on in our world. Call it a Democracy, a Monarchy or a Dictatorship, all forms of government, even those that start out with the best intentions, end up being corrupted and no longer serves the people, the people end up serving the government. Spend some time in the world. Give it 2 weeks and see if you don’t have a new understanding of the world.

Yes I think we are Rome on fire and Bush is Nero fiddling away as it happens. But know this the Democrats are not the answer.

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”
