1. And the thread below says, "Tell President Obama: Stop Attacks on Anti-War Activists!"
Maybe if Obama didn't act so much like Bachmann the choice would be clearer to more people.

(Not that there's ANY excuse for liking Bachmann)

2. I can no longer conceal my disappointment.
Bottom line is that our way of life wont be missed until its gone. It will take a surge of smart people to overthrow what is happening; and there just are not that many of us.

Let Bachmann run. Let Unions lose their power. Let the uber-rich have their money. Let education and our infrastructure fall apart. Maybe then we'll see some serious political activism. But dont fool yourself in thinking it will happen in our lifetimes.

I bought into the President's 'hope' and the promise of change. It's a myth.

I apologize in advance, usually I'm not such a downer.

3. Probably true
We have a astroturf populist movement focused on get the people excited to give all their money to the rich. To embrace a neo-fuedal model.
