Re: The Changing Scene
Ya know, I hate what "O" has done over the last couple years as much as anybody. The fiscal & economic problems bother me more and will affect all of us way more than all the crazy ex orders that have been the law for many decades.
I still believe that "O" will only be able to go so far, then It will all back fire on him. I do also believe last Nov election is the writing on the wall for the demise of his ideas. I just hope the dollar, all our 401's, and our financial security doesn't collapse. I figure that he is trying to crash everything in order to force through an added value tax. Somehow, I don't think it will fly.
Our country has went through changes from the alien & sedition act in late 1790's to present day miscarriages of constitutional rights; but we always seem to make it through as a Nation. I still have faith in our system, call me crazy; but I believe it will all come back around and our Nation will be better for it; look at the tea party and it's growing influence; maybe the tea party will be majority main stream thought soon enough; heck I think it is already.
Maybe it's because I live in Alaska; pretty conservative place. We live on the Yukon, quite rural; all kinds of freedom that doesn't exist back east. We have left wing greenies in our community too; but they are laughed at, not taken serious at all and they are letter writers. Whenever they attempt to change things; the majority puts them back in their place. I think it's like that over much of main stream America too.
We have a couple Germans, been here for 30 years, I call them socialists, that's how left wing they are. Once the one lady was at school meeting and started going on about how in her country (germany), the govt paid for everything. The fat people paid more taxes, ect. I told her if Germany was such a shan gri la, why is she still here in Ak, I then told her that in America if you work hard, you get fat She stormed outta the place after I mentioned that the Russkies should have got her too. But ya know, most everybody in the community thinks those greenies are jokes and whatever changes those Germans try are quickly beat down by the majority.
Wait until nx election, big change is coming and the dems will feel awful lonely once again. Common sense is very basic to most Americans.
