    Ask yourselves if Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell, and HG Wells could be wrong about anything as important as war.

    Fifty-four years ago, Al & Bert wrote an open letter about a choice facing the world described by the three words in the above title. "...shall we put an end to humanity; or shall mankind renounce war?"

    With 20 percent of the local economy in many congressional districts dependent of war spending, humanity is looking like a real long shot in the Land of the Free.

    My solution is to Flush the DC Toilet in 2010!

    Vote against every single congressional incumbent running in next November's midterms.

    Replace as many incumbents as possible with candidates who are neither Republican nor Democrats.

    Welcome to USMB. Your solution to replace all incumbents has been advocated before...never happened to my knowledge, even with an attempt to exchange Democrats for Republicans and vice versa. Changing to third and fourth party congressmen is a far fetched dream.

    About 64 years ago, Japan renounced war and changed its constitution to preclude it. Japan has done well economically for several decades, so it can be done. Unfortunately, the government of Japan is considering changing the constitution to once again allow war.

    Personally, I feel a big war coming, not necessarily from Japan...they will be one of our allies against the collectivist nations.

    He said he'd like to replace them all with some other party's candidates...meaning third or fourth parties. This will not happen.

    I am wondering what party he favors. I'm guessing the Green (front for the Communist) Party.

    I know a Green party candidate for Congress last election. I am yet to be able to have an intelligent conversation with him.

    And what if war is the racket Natural Selection employs to put and end to humanity?

    Fiscal conservatives need to be swept in, not moderate/liberal pork barrellers who got us INTO this mess.

    Fiscal conservatives get the point that we can't afford diddly right now and are going to have to gut the government gravy train just to survive.

    Life's gonna suck for the next decade. And I mean REALLY suck.
