    Thing is do you KNOW Bills in Congress? Or Do you just follow talk radio?
    Not even Congressmen men know the bills in Congress. They make them too long, too complicated, and it's all about the back door deal with these things.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    You missed the bit "man is not yet smart enough to take care of himself". I'd love to see absolute openness and honesty - it would be a first..
    The trouble is, general perception = "socialism" rings a bad bell...I do not go by "perceptions"...man is a social creature. Why is this so denied by so many?
    What causes the pealing of bells is "run-away socialism".
    We do need balance.

    Well, how else can they get the loopholes they need to benefit their corporate campaign donors?

    Politics are...

    enormous popularity contests not at all based upon a candidate's intellect, or competence (in todays day and age).

    As such, politics are about becoming more popular than the other guy, for more time, with more people. And doing whatever you can to achieve that goal

    No, I don't think so. Politics is about power.

    Politics are about convincing as many people as possible that someone else has all the answers who they should listen to, for those who are too smart for that trap politics is about making them hate the other guy more than you. And at all times, never compromise your ideas.
