86. Seems? Think of being the first people to declare independence and write a Constitution, inspiring
Edited on Tue Jun-08-10 07:35 AM by No Elephants
the French Revolution, then think of today.

We ceased being a people who would fight for a principle like "Taxation without representation is tyranny." We became a nation of apathy, inertia, or even unconditional cheerleading (be it Republican or Democcratic), some of whom sneer at lawmakers and voters who give even momentary lip service to their principles, rather than falling in line immediately.
