I have no problem with people arguing against specific actions or policies put forth by our leaders, but I take issue with those who say government is the problem. Our enlightened forefathers were brilliant men who came up with a darn-near perfect justification for existence and Constitution for self-governing.
Government OF, BY, and FOR is just fine in my book. It's the people that's the problem. More specifically, those people who deliberately confuse governing with government itself. I wish they would just admit that they have no problem with the United States having a Congress, they just want them to stop spending money on social programs. And They have no problem with our nation being led by an elected President, just not that Black one in office now.
This country has collective amnesia. Did we really think Obama was going to fix everything in two years? And what is everyone so mad about... that we have better health insurance? That there are more bank regulations? That we are in the process of leaving Iraq?
Since JSG hates when I put bumper stickers on the car, I decided to start a "virtual" collection. I chose this one to be my first because JSG saw it on a car parked in Riverside. It cemented our decsion to move out of our present location and into a more "progressive" community. By the way, Riverside/Avondale was voted the #2 best neighborhood in the country to live in by the American Planning Association.
