Are you talking about me?

  1. It’s encouraging to me that lately I’ve noticed a crack in the Grand Coolie Dam of resistance to revealing the depth of corruption at all levels of US government. The people finally seem to be awakening from their slumber, and the real power lies with them ultimately.

Two of my adversaries have repeatedly said “It’s the lobbyists that are the problem” but one is convinced that everybody on welfare is on it because they are lazy and want to be on welfare, following this line of thinking he thinks the only way to combat all this welfare fraud is to vote Republican. The other votes Republican because they support the military.

In short, most kids just can’t really think! Without an educated public, we have no defense against the death of liberty.
