quote:Originally posted by moonfireThere is an ole cliche'...in order to have peace one must have war...but in my opinion...if the war is not for a good reason...then no! Which president has not lied...that is not a question...War was really inevidable...it was a matter of borrowed time..."Lo" Loretta
quote:Originally posted by moonfireNot true...there are many who have and we see proof of policy changes up to 2 terms later when another president is in office...we can go back to Lyndon Johnson, John F. Kennedy, etc..many ignore the issues...we, the people. In the late 70's another pres was in office gas skyrocketted...what did the American people do? They went on strikes, truckers parked their trucks and would not transport petroleum..oh, excuse me I am so sorry, there really is not shortage in fuel, energy in general...remember??? Now we have no backbone to stand up against the government which is weaker now..."Lo" Loretta

quote:Originally posted by moonfireI would say that "government" represents all from the House of Representatives/Senate/Congress...they are the real controlling power...so they are yet weaker as the standards have lessened in great senses! We allow to "many freedoms" people do not take a stand on issues being voted on...or as many...so if we the people govern ourselves, we allow them to be stronger over us even though it weakens us as a government in a whole.I know if I have an issue with a law about to be passed, I call, email or write...not everyone does that..."Lo" Loretta
quote:Originally posted by 4getmenotYes...and the media is one i really do not believe most the time...don't they only tell the public what the government "tells" them to tell us when it comes to certain things??? So what is the point of having them if they are not going to tell us the trueth?? although i can understand why they do not let us know some things..like ones that would allow for our enemies to gain information..security type stuff and i do not understand the people who say that the government shuld enlighten us on those topics when we should realise that if WE know were sy a top secret site is then the enemy would KNOW where it is too....i dunno...so many un harmonious things in life.....
