  • The government isn't failing. They have us right where they want us. Control through FEAR. If you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. Fear has got the best of us, and if this country is going to prevail in anyway it must be fought and taken back by THE PEOPLE.. It is our moral obligiation as a citizen to overthrow a government who's best interest is no longer the people's. Who over the years has become corrupt and greedy at the cost of innocent people everywhere.

  • You live in a democracy, not a tyranny. You do not 'overthrow ' government, you vote it out of office at elections. Your quotes do not constitute a justification for anything. Anyone can quote historical figures to ' justify ' anything

  • Well, i am moral and religious but i am certainly NOT Christian.
    So what's your point?

    Answer by outstandingLove at 1:33 AM on Aug. 24, 2009

  • Wow bloodbought. Sounds like you need to move to a socialist or communist country. I believe in equality for all. Not to mention that UNDER GOD was only added later, it was not in the original. Oh and gee. I think ppl should be allowed to read whatever they want. Even if that means they pick up Harry Potter over the Bible.

    Our government is failing. But not because it is not run by people who think the same as you do. It is failing because it is has been run by people who claim to think the same as you do but then never hold up to what they claim.
