"Nothing short of an aroused public can change things; nothing less than democracy is at stake." - Bill Moyers
I like that! We didn't start the fire Bush did but if it is going to be controlled or put out it is up to us and our kids.
hi, AAP--yeppers. heaven knows our gov't isn't stepping up to the plate-- so it's up to us to do what has to be done to make the world a better place.this is nothing new, tho. our gov't likes to blow its own horn and make a lot of noise about this being the 'greatest country on earth' [gag me with a spoon].but, when it has come to things like: ending slavery, unionizing, working toward lessening poverty, creating equal rights for all races and women, doing what is needed to help the environment, bettering education, promoting peace, etc. etc. etc. -- the gov't has had to be dragged along, kicking and screaming, by the PEOPLE.that's how it has always been and that's how it will continue to be from the look of things.
