    I remember as a child. I was at a workshop. They had a bunch of people representing a range of people.

    They had people representing CEOs of many various corporations: Disney, Playboy, others I can't remember.

    They had people representing Churches, the devil, the President, Kings. etc

    And then they posed an interesting question. Who was the most powerful person in the room?

    People would guess trying to determine wealth power. But the answer really was simple. We were.

    See, none of those people have power, unless we consent to give it to them. We have the freedom to choose what to do with our labor, who we give our money, and what we let influence us.

    We the people have power over all corporations and governments.

    It's 2011... If you want to know something you have more information at your fingertips than at any other time in the history of the world, thanks to the privet sector. The Voters chose to be misinformed and vote for what they believe to be a lesser of two evils... Our current predicament is nothing more
    than a reflection of the US voter base being having a majority in unwillingness to hold elected officials accountable and to a higher standard.

    Bush/Obama
    Cain/Mitt
    Pretty much all of congress…

    It’s the voters/supporters making excuses for horribly corrupted and stupid people that allows them to gain power.

    Precisely. WE the people decide to retain power or give it to those that might eventually take it from us...which sadly too many are doing, and sadly too many are abridging their right to stop for whatever reason...

    "A Republic, If you can keep it..." ~Answer from Benjamin Franklin as a person asked him as The Constitution had been voted upon in the affirmative, as to the form of Government they had voted upon...

    A gift given unto us over 200 years ago all too many are willing to give unto others that they hardly know but by name, and scattered deeds...

    Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people.

    ---Thomas Jefferson

    I think that pretty much sums up what the intent of the founders was.

    Im sorry to hear that. You really don't need to drink to participate in discussions here.

    Do you have an opinion on who has power?
