    Given the current circumstances in the United States, it seems quite reasonable that the American people are upset with the government. With the country in extreme amounts of debt and a struggling market, things aren’t looking good. The world has given us examples of the next generation going out and overthrowing the government to institute a more just and helpful government for its people. What is to say that the young people of the United States couldn’t do the same? The task might not be easy, but neither was the first revolution of this great country. I would like to open it to debate. How do people feel about revolting from the current government and instituting a new one? Can it even be done with a country this size? Would we get invaded? Or would we succeed and be able to wipe away all our debts to the Chinese and finally have a stable growing country again. Its been a long time America, but now is your time.

    Yo Vern, while you were watching Oprah, our Constitutional government was replaced by a fascist welfare/warfare state.

    Things are not nearly that bad. You have no idea how bad it has to get before the people riot. It is a case of life and death, NOT poverty as it is defined in this country and not what we are experiencing by a long shot.

    Do you have any idea how bad things would get in the transition period? That would make what we are going through a cakewalk.

    I'm always amused at those who attempt to chastise others on a message board. The "American Idol" is on reference being my point. As if the poster who said that is actually contributing something by making such a post. The intrinsic value to society is probably far better served via the watching of American Idol than posting on any message board, blog, etc.... Well, the commercial is over. Thanks for reading. Candycorn-out!
