42. I side with those Jefferson didn't speak to/for.I don't necessarily side with white male Americans.

 

Because those he doesn't speak for/to don't whine about wanting everything and getting nothing.

It is like the old country cry in your beer songs like "pop a top" (and I like old country songs.)

Those guys whine and whine about what they lost, and dont' realize that they didn't have to lose what they lost if they would only stop whining

there might still be time to enjoy what was perceived to have been lost when it wasn't lost at all in the first place

anarchy is what a tiny minority do to interfere with the vast majority in 2013.

tyranny while on the internet itself is not tyranny

you didn't lose the right to speak, but if you yell fire or are places one shouldn't be, it is not tyranny.It's chaos and breaking the law.And this country is run on laws and run on majority rules. (it is why when the electoral system we have is upset by having a third person, someone somewherre will be in cahoots with one side or another, regardless of initial intent.

and one person can ruin it for a couple of hundred millions IMHO.

the whole 2000 mantra that both sides were the same led to the voters staying home
and creating havoc with the entire system, and no one getting 50% of anything.
And it is safe to assume, had the 10,000,000 less voters come out in 2000, that more than a few hundred thousand would have voted for the one who wasn't seated over the one that was, because the other side has a limited number of voters, and you figure all of them came out for their guy. There were NO hidden voters in either 2000 or 2004.
(we are talking Nov. 2000, not Dec. 12, 2000).
and the current problem of corporations, and corporate personhood, well, yeah, Alito and Roberts sure, they would have been picked by Bush.

the problem was self-created.
It is not tyranny, it is the voters who voted that created every single problem from 1968 on.
Because a bunch of changes, less bullets, less protests staying at home, sitting on hands,
voting for a 3rd person, changed everything

not tyranny.
it was a self-inflicted wound.

imho
