Re: Lets Have OUR OWN PROTEST

Something i dint think is ever considered is how young the Uas is. Its rise to power as a nation happened incredible quickly. From the outside looking in there does seem to be major issues at certain levels that wont be solved in any short space of time. And while it is in living memory that blacks couldn't vote 50 years ago i think resentment on both sides will live on. All you can do is keep taking small steps in the right direction. I obviously say this as somebody with no stake in either side and as somebody eith no links to the country

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: Lets Have OUR OWN PROTEST

It seems that regardless of what civilization we're in, at some point, the interests of a Government or ruling body and its citizens go in opposite directions.

At that point, Government's main purpose is to ensure it survives and perpetuate itself. (Doesn't matter, right, or left, they want to perpetuate themselves) Why do you think the traditional GOP was having a meltdown that Trump, an outsider was winning the nomination? He's a disruption. Same when the Democratic convention emails were released about trying to smear Bernie Sanders. The more time we spend arguing with each other, the less time we spend scrutinizing our elected officials. Those with power don't really care one way or another if we argue and throw rocks at each other, as long as we *feel* like we can vote and real issues addressed. They'll swoop in from on high and big daddy government is going to fix it all. How long have we heard the same tired line, "This is the most important election of our lifetime." Yet nothing changes, that was 50 lifetimes ago for crying out loud. Besides a couple of cosmetic political issues, the real issues are kicked further down the road because of their catastrophic threat to disrupt the whole system. As a politician, the more watered down and murky, the better. This insures you don't isolate any particular voting population, which is perfect if you hope to win an election.

Eventually the issues that keep getting kicked further down to future generations will be a cancer too far along to treat. It will result in something drastic. But again, diversion is just one effective tactic. Fears of all various kinds are another, from plagues, to threats of terror, to natural disasters, and to financial crisis.

If we really want to protest something, it should be this tired propaganda machine that has its fingers in everything we do. I can't piss in my own back yard without a permit these days.
