15. I believe our opinions do matter, but they're
Edited on Fri Dec-19-08 04:13 PM by Uncle Joe
as raindrops on rock.

With a nation of 300 million, it takes many voices and opinions for effect, but I believe eventually the rock will wear down to pebbles or sand and we'll have beach front property.

If it doesn't the rain will build to a flood and there will be what seems like sudden change, just as some people considered the 60s to have been, but in fact those forces of change were built up over time.

I believe we're approaching another transformational era but it won't happen until the new President takes office.
