    America has been dismantled, this is not "our government" it does not represent us, it does not have our best interests in mind. We have been decieved and raped. We are in grave danger, government has always been mans worst enemy. When the jack booted thugs come to your door and demand your firearms, what will you do? Will you submit to your new masters?

    Lexington and concord.......

    History is repeating itself right before our eyes, if you cannot see it now, there is nothing i can do or say to help you, may the lord be with you in the coming tribulations.

    The Federal Government was never designed to be the savior of every person, at least not by the framers it wasn't. As it gets larger and more bureaucratic it becomes even more unable to quickly and decisively help in any situation.

    Regardless of the Party in power I would never rely on the Federal Government to come to my aid. This is a lesson in self-reliance and the fact that centralizing all government functions into one "national" government is not the answer to all things.

    Federal support to state and local officials and volunteer organizations continues around the clock in effort to save lives, sustain life, and assist with law enforcement operations in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina. The following facts highlight some of the important activities as of 2 p.m.:

    * Lives Saved (rescues performed) – 47,300
    * Shelters – 750
    * People housed in shelters – 235,200
    * FEMA responders – 7,500
    * U.S. Coast Guard personnel – 4,000
    * National Guard personnel – 45,000
    * Active Duty Military – 19,000
    * MREs provided (meals) – 17 million
    * Water provided (liters) – 37.4 million

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency is implementing a new assistance delivery tool by issuing debit cards to the thousands of evacuees at the Houston Astrodome. Currently, the amount of money being distributed through the expedited assistance program is $2,000 per household.

    ---

    75,500 personnel in the area -

    Yeah....the government won't help.

    You would think that democrats would get the picture not to politicize tragedies.

    The Wellstone memorial got politicized, it outraged the country so much they all voted against the Democrats.

    This hurricane was a much bigger tragedy and yet Democrats still haven't figured out that they shouldnt be politicizing it.

    Plus the Democrats still haven't figured out that the federal government isn't supposed to help with things like this unless the state government requests it to. and even then its not the governments first priority.

    I've finally been swayed. Americans' have no one in Washington looking out for America. There is no apparent leadership if any at all. If we cannot deal as a nation in recovering from Katrina (who we saw coming for at least a week) we certainly will be unprepared for the next terrorist strike. The GOP and the Dems will be so busy posturing that literally thousand of terrorists can enter America and destroy any city at will--and it only takes one.
    You're right dude, grab what ya got and hang on to it because no one is ready to protect you from a thing.
