Re: What if you held all the marbles? II
after reading the input here, i just have to point out..in each and everyones mind, their ideas ate the cornerstones to a better civilization!...HOWEVER...if each of you had to LIVE under the others rules...well..lets just say it would get interesting real quick...for instance lets consiter one comment from a recent post..
from HunterAlpha1.."corporal punishment would be legal, in fact parents who refused to spank their kids for misbehaving would be spanked themselves. also, police officers would be authorized to spank unruly children."
for me, should one of you or a person i dont know to lay a hand on my child, without my personal permission??(and to get that permission..well i would spank if nessary, NOT you!) and what if you spanked too hard or too much for the "CRIME??" well lets just say ..you had better have your plot paid for, dug and ready for use. the shear volume of "LAWS" that would be required to be passed to cover such a BROAD statement would keep us all busy for a century! and thats before one child gets spanked.
thats why my coment was what it was. while I "think" i have the answers..I am wise enough o understand what our FOUNDING FATHERS understood..NO one man howerever great he may be can have all the answers. hence in the beginning of OUR CONSTITUTION...WE THE PEOPLE it takes a great many decatated minds to try to come to grips with our socity..if anything WE THE PEOPLE ARE TO BLAME FOR OUR CURRENT STATUS..WE DROPPED THE BALL! write down on a piece of paper all the names of ALL the people you personally know..now ask this question of each and every one..did YOU vote in the last elections? include local, state and national elections..for each one answered yes give yourself a point..for each one NO..subtract 10 points. hows your score? if each and every one of us took the time to encourage just 5 more people we know to actually vote..would we be in this situtation? for your information our FOUNDING FATHERS took the time to try to get every person they knew to vote every chance they were able to.
except for the very people we complain about here and elsewhere..no one really works to get people to vote..we allowed the scholls to be barred from teaching the importance of voting..we allowed the family unit to stop teaching the kids...oh sure I'm sure WE personally try to get our kids to vote..what about ours neighbors..you talk to them about the importance of voting? your shooting buddys?, your pastor? your hairdresser?
you see its really is in OUR hands already to change the course here and now..WHAT are you going to do about it? I know what I am doing....i dont want to BE THE MAN..it too big a job for me..i know and understand that part..but together ..WE can DO IT! you just need to start today and WORK as hard at getting the people around you to vote as you do bringing home the "BACON" or learning to shoot that new rifle, or what ever it is you do..
flame me or cheer me our future is in our hand and voices. it up to each of us if we are a ROAR to be noticed or just a tiny squeek to be ignored.
