Maverick

Trickle down economy?
Looks like it has trickled UP to me

And flown right out the window

And now I suppose you want me to pay for it
And my children too
And my Grandchildren too
And my great grand children too...
...
...

I'm sorry Ronald Regan
But the curtain has fallen
And you have no cloths
You never did
It was all "backstage wardrobe"
You were just a naked old fool.

I'm not really "for" wasteful government
However

Handing all of the money over to the richest people, because they presumably know what best to do with it, doesn’t seem to be working.

So yes

Seeing that we have a population of over 300,000,000 people
In fifty states and a handful of possessions
That we have a ten trillion dollar economy
We are trying to interface with a number of complex emerging foreign economies
And act as the primary defense of the “free” world...

It’s a big county
With big problems

Yes
I want a big government

Not an inefficient one

But one with the scope and depth, necessary to protect our rights and see to our collective interests.

Let us be clear on this
Deregulation, for the most part
Has NOT worked.

I’m sorry too, John McCain
You were the deregulation maverick guru
And now you want to “rein in” the corruption on Wall Street?
ROTFLMAOCOPTER!
(as my son would say)

I’m asking all, of my fellow Americans
To join me In becoming more active in government
WE are the people
The government is supposed to be
Of the people, for the people and by the people
U.S. = Us

I'm showing up.
I was appalled by the VP debate: her well practiced high school speech. Her lack of empathy for his pain. Her ignorance on things important to fullfill the role she'd be given if he wins. Oy.
Appalled by the Bail Out.
Now what? I am showing up.
I will vote.

Oh, I'm showing up all right. This "bail out" was Bush's last chance to leave a legacy since he sees the Whitehouse chances going down the toilet for his party (or so I pray).

I am delight to see such spirited responses
"I'm showing up"

Sounds like the rallying call to a movement

Doesn't it?
