Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!

Benjamin Franklin

After seeing interviews from Watter’s World, it dawns on me that we are sooo doomed.

Rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away. They’re privileges. That’s all we’ve ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges. And if you read the news even badly, you know that every year the list gets shorter and shorter. Sooner or later, the people in this country are gonna realize the government does not give a fuck about them! The government doesn’t care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety. It simply does not give a fuck about you! It’s interested in its own power. That’s the only thing. Keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.

  1. The only issue I have with George Carlin's comment, is referring "The Government" as it's own entity - as if it's not made up of PEOPLE... if you don't like what the gov't is doing, RUN FOR OFFICE. We could use some better people in DC. Degrading the gov't as a know-nothing, evil, power-hungry empire, causes Good People to run away and not get involved, and things just get worse.

    And, Ah... Watters doesn't know that the Senate is ONE PART of Congress??
    Student: "he's a great congressman"... Watters: "ah... he's a senator"... YES, those are BOTH true statements! DUH!
