    I am with you in every way. This is a very critical time in our history, which is why I am very concerned that people are withdrawing from decisions happening now that can change us for a long time to come.

    Many people feel the same way you do, but I feel that now is not the time to lose focus. Obama doesn't have to worry about re-election so I fear that he will enact many things, in his own way, that will hurt us in the short and long run.

    I feel the same way, but I worry what can happen if too many people are sleeping.

    Wayne, my fear is that Washington is counting on our disgust, or should I say Obama is. He is poised to enact anyway he can legislation that will cripple us in so many ways. This is his chance to "change" us in hideous ways.

    Yes, Amy, I believe we are easily manipulated and ultimately controlled. It is not by accident that the media has become so bold in their distortion and suppression of the truth. Our nation is changing and not for the better.

    I can't remember the last time that the media actually told the truth. Couple all the misinformation with the reality of our economic situation and that spells disaster. I have a very strong feeling that a lot of people have lapsed into apathy.

    Pino, I feel exactly the same way. We have to keep our voices heard and for now I intend to annoy the hell out of everyone who is supposed to be working for me.

    Politics is a game, but I think we have to keep our eyes and ears on the players. I don't appreciate being the pawn.

    I still believe that there is still something we can do to keep things from really going astray. Maybe I am naive.

    I agree JThomp42. Apparently we have sent children to do business in Washington. My fear is that way too many people are turned off and tuned out. That leaves plenty of room for bad things to happen.
