do you have a car, or reasonable access to reliable transportation?
do you have the freedom to say whatever you want, without worrying about catching a bullet with your head?
if you answered yes to any of these questions, and you're bitching about this war that's going on, you need to back up a few steps and look at what you're complaining about.
Fact is, without zealots like those we have in office defending your ability to answer yes to those easy little questions, you wouldn't have the first clue how to maintain that level of freedom for yourselves.
Many people don't realize it, but freedom is comprised not mainly of priviledges, but of responsibilities.
So if you don't have a better solution in mind that you can implement right now, shut up or get out. If you have the answer, run for office and fix everything-- because if you don't, it's going to continue to be this way: they'll run it the way it's always been run, and you'll complain about how much you hate the way they run it.
