    Nothing is going to change until the citizens in this country do something. All the talk in the world is not going to change things. And all the complaining isn't going to change anything.

    We had our chance at election time, and the people put the same career politicians right back in. Obama just gave congress and his cabinet all pay raises, and now he just gives presidents armed guards for life, at our tax expense.

    This administration is going to make it financially good for themselves, and to heck with the people in this country. Its all about what the politicians can gain and get. They are raking in the money while the citizens struggle to pay debts.

    They talk about us people having to scarifice durning these hard times, yet they give to themselves anything they need. The scarifices should start with them. They need to cut their pays, and they damn sure don't need armed guards for the rest of their intire lives....nor do we need to pay them salaries after they are out of office..............where is the outraged and voice from the people.?????????

    If this is what you want then don't complain.

    So voting for Mittens would have changed all that?

    Rise up and do what?

    Personally, I'm happy with the stores full of food, the banks open during business hours and the buses running on time.

    The OP is retarded.

    As long as they get welfare and food stamps, nobody is rising up.

    Zilch, about the only people on welfare here are Roma Czech citizens (think gypsy, kinda like blacks in the US). The rest of the population is white with a large Vietnamese minority who actually work and do well.

    That's right. The People elected who they wanted to represent them in a free and completely open election. That is their right and they exercised that right.

    Just because you don't LIKE who they elected does not give you, or anyone else, the right to reject the Will of The People and impose your own preferred solution.

    That would be tyranny, and if you and your fellow travelers try to subvert the Will of The People, you'll find yourself heartily opposed by those who love the Constitution and the principle of self-rule.
