What Does It Take?

What does it take to get you interested in national politics?  I found myself surprisingly disinterested as the Obama machine "fundamentally transformed America".  I found myself sitting by and observing as the healthcare system was completely turned over to insurance providers and our privacy was completely violated by the federal government.  We have completely given in to the victim mentality as we no longer are willing to take responsibility for our own actions.  I find myself waking up to an America that I don't like.  I'm just not sure what it will take to move me to action. Meh....maybe tomorrow.....

    So good to see you are still about my friend. A voice from the now defunct MW site which met an untimely end some years ago. I too feel your distain for politics, both in your nation and in mine. Perhaps old friend, we are simply getting ancient and should leave the arguments to the children. Max and Rick could be our champions and Lew as moderator should at least prevent the spillage of blood.
    Cheers from Aussie.

  3. Kingston and Mick, as always, I can't argue with your comments. I am moving towards a time in my life where I truly desire security over liberty. I am becoming too old to fight. I am young enough for this to bother me a great deal. As this world moves towards a more civilized and controlled human experience, I can only feel a sense of loss for the kids who will never experience pulling themselves up from their own bootstraps. Oh well, times change, people change, morals change, expectations change.

    1. Hey Storm.

      Glad to see you still about.
      I personally prefer my freedom vs government intrusion into ever facet of my life. I dislike the personal pat downs at the airport and now drive when I travel Takes longer, uses more energy but that's the price government pays for being crass at the airport. Government there to talk care of one and all. Not sure I like it a bit as people are no longer responsible for having 4 children as mommy government will help. Why push the envelope and work harder if government is the great equalizer? As more of us just walk away, the worse it will get as everyone wants their fair share of freebies. A sad commentary for a once great nation.
