25. You no longer believe the change we need
will come from the democratic party?? So who do you think will do a better job then?

I no longer believe that the change we need will come through the Democratic party - but if the country ever wakes up enough to take to the streets, I'm in.

This is your idea of starting an uprising, were where you when people were marching against Bush? You calling for this shit now that we have a democratic government working hard to clean up the mess left by Bush and his cronies.
