42. There is a lot of truth to what you say, but remember that history will repeat itself...
Just when you think that the people have been beaten into permanent submission, they surprise us all and rise up to demand their rights.

Just when Karl Rove spoke of a 'permanent Republican majority' the Repubs drowned in their own hubris and were turned out of office as the majority party.

I agree with your view on charismatic leaders who could make a difference, they are often identified and killed off by their enemies early before they get a foothold in public consciousness.

However, you would be wrong to assume Americans will continue to take what has been dished out for the past 50 years and remain lowly serfs to the ruling elites.

It is coming... and all these events are speeding up that day.
