Just a discussion I got into with one of my fellow brother in arms the other day. Does anyone else feel that the government today cares more about itself and less about the people it was created to serve? I mean today most of the offices held are held by career polticans, not by the average joe. Does our government opperate in fear of us as it should be? Has the media fallen under control of the government and its soul use is to keep us at bay or confused with petty ideals. In 1776 this nation was forged by traitors to the English Throne. Traitors who felt the passion that "Their" government should be a government that should work for them, the people. 1861 a new set of traitors felt that their government had forgotten about them and was trying to oppress their lives. And had it not being for the fact that the former Union was able to convince the nation that slavery was the key issue then it is possible a new nation would have been forged then also. 115 years of difference between to wars both fought for the reason of changing the government in which ruled. And had not the 60's been over run by drugs it could have very well been another attempt to change the government. So here we are 155 years since the last time citizens stood up to the government and demanded change..... Thomas Jefferson would be very displeased. I might be wrong on the actual wordage here, but it was Jefferson that said "For Freedom to work, then a revolt every 20 years is a good thing" and that the "tree of liberty must be refreshed by the blood of patroits" Now I am not saying to go stock pile arms and build bunkers in your backyard, all I am saying is that I myself have been very displeased with the workings of our government on almost every level. And if this slide away from center does not stop, we as a people might not be left with any other option.
