    Anytime men are in power, eventually either a corrupt man gets into power, power corrupts a man with good intentions, or a man misuses that power with good intentions without realizing the negative outcome.

    As such, no earthly government can be trusted completely. That is why it is imperative that we exercize our right to vote, and our right to exact changes in the government systems when necessary. However, getting enough people to agree upon what needs to be changed and how it needs to be changed, as well as working to make that change is a challenge that leaves most people deciding to just let things stay as they are instead of working to better the country.

    It doesn't help when the electoral process is rigged. The only "electable" politicians that are presented to us on a corporate platter are fascists.

    A vote for a republican is vote for fascism.

    A vote for a democrat is a vote for fascism.

    A vote for Ron Paul is, well according to the fascist's and their conglomerated media prostitutes is a vote for terrorists.

    C'mon y'all stop buying the big lie already. I'm sick of living under fascist rule . . . I want my republic back!!!
