19. Now that was good.
I always voted as my family did, then one day I said what do I really believe and who is near to it. I found I was a liberal and not how Gore run but a real Liberal. So how to handle that. Nafta ? no but there was congress voting for it.As I went through it all I came up with Dem were as near as I could vote for what I liked in the over all picture and vote Green in local stuff. In a society like ours we need groups to pay for the interstructure, as this society could not run with out this interstructure, so need taxes, to buy them. It is not a cowboys world where every one makes it on their own and any one that thinks they did it on their own is nuts. Go down the list and see how the group has only made these things open to all. You could start as you get out of bed. Lights, roads, schools, college, land( needed army to take it from the Indians) water lines, tel. lines and the list goes on and on. I do not wish to have to fight a corp that will skin me alive to take every cent I have to use these things, after my tax money put them in, in the first place. If the Christian right do not wish to do things fine but do not make laws do I cant, on top of that. So we do not watch what is going on and vote or who we like even if it does hurt us at times.Let the Freepa stay on, he is good to getting you thinking.
