    It is time to start openly ridiculing and mocking Republicans and Democrats. Not the politicians but our neighbors who claim to be a members of either party. Peer pressure is the only way to affect change, and it must be a grass roots movement. Start at the local level and then move to state level. Forget the federal government for now, they are going to do what they are going to do with or without the will of the people. That much is obvious.

    Make fun of them, call them names, laugh at their stupidity, and make them try and defend being a member of either party. Point out that they are traitors to the American dream by siding with the oppressors. Perhaps even start a door to door campaign, a flyer campaign, or an article in the paper. Something, anything. There are many businesses that will lend a financial hand to help achieve complete independance. The goal should try to be an independant community without democrats and republicans.

    It is time to identify them, the Republicans and the Democrats, as the enemy that they are. They have obscounded with our independance, they have made a mockery of our democracy, and they have sold our leadership to the higfhest bidder (corporations). Their crimes are too numerous to list, and border on treason.

    The question is... do we have a fraction of the backbone our forefathers had?

    My friends and I don't much talk about politics, folks are actually held accountable for their mouth around here and not much good ever comes talking about it when there's usually booze involved. Folks into discussing it go to monthly local council meetings where the donnybrooks take place over it.

    I was always taught the same thing, don't talk politics or religion, and don't discuss how much you money you make. I've pretty much followed that line of thinking for the majority of my life. Now looking at where we are now I have to wonder if that was such a good idea.

    Sorry to hear that, but at least you have more of a backbone than 95% of our current politicians.

    I have no idea what my neighbors' political convictions are.

    Nor do I care as long as they mind their own business and keep their property up.

    looking at the state our our great nation perhaps we should start caring about what are neighbors think. Perhaps we should start a dialogue with them. Obviously bitching on a message board isn't achieving anything substantial.

    Only if you use it to stand on your own two feet.
