Response to Original message
30. Pete, I'm gonna respectfully
disagree with you. How was ever any bad president ousted? By nodding and agreeing to their misguided policies?

Think back to VietNam. Our country was in chaos then. People gradually became more and more angry over what was happening over there. Their voices rose in unison, demanding change. Recall the outcome of that.

My opinion is: they're not doing enough criticising. Start raising those voices. Calling all Democratic contenders: be creative in finding new things to criticize King George about. Ferret out new, unbeknownst to many, cheating and larceny.

If all the Democratic candidates start singing in unison, the noise will eventually filter down to Joe Average, who will finally pay attention.
