The problem is that the peace movemement from the 60's is not going to work in the new century. The government in power does not care if we march in the streets. They are prepared with weapons and Naziesque cops a plenty. This generation HAS TO HAVE A DIFFERENT PLAN. Your grandpa's protesting won't work now.

The challenge is two fold:

1) Find a way to wake up the pathetic people in this country enough to get them to throw out the Democrats and Republicans and opt for a better body politic. It does not matter if Bush is in the White House, he is just a figurehead. We have to get them all out of congress and choke the hell out of the CIA, FBI and the Pentagon they hold the keys and are the dogs of the corporations. The last great depression and ensuing wars lead to a very leftist government agenda. The bastards won it back by lying to the idiot electorate in the bible belt. We have to get control of those morons again!


2) Crush the American economic system so the corpoations cannot exert the power that do now. This can be done easily...stop buying their crap. Buy gold and silver and get control of your money by removing it from their pockets. A dollar in the bank is worth a heck of a lot more to the banker than it is to you.

Once the depression hits vote the right people into office and we'll take this country back.

what I think

"Once the depression hits vote the right people into office and we'll take this country back" wake up

The elite have the money, the elite will finace the TEEVEE capaigns of their puppets like Thune or Clueless chimpy, and it will be just as bad as it is now only we're ALL cold and starving like some of us are now.

tell us the plan then 15.May.2005 09:59

Got any ideas other than being a turd on a rock?

karl rove is a genius 15.May.2005 10:26

turd

I got nothing.

Apparently it is more profitable to be in a state of war than peace... 15.May.2005 11:18

Pravda or Consequences

The military-industrial complex (via lobbyists) tells Congress what to vote for, taxpayers foot the bill, responsible investments in education and health are demonized as wasteful spending and we can bench test our way to enlightenment leaving no child behind.

Somehow, I think it is all just bullshit.

war is peace. 15.May.2005 11:39

this thing here

ignorance is strength.

jesus is an armed soldier firing rounds.

torture is o.k. if americans do it.



so maybe all the peace marches all around the world didn't stop the war.

but try to imagine if there were no "ineffectual" peace marches, at all.

talk about a dark world sliding under...

try to imagine 15.May.2005 23:46

.

if there were some _effectual_ political actions.

talk about a bright world rising.

of course, I don't count voting for, or sneering at, the lesser of two evils as politics.
