Go away! [/quote] Must be a COMMIE out there.. [/quote] Bottom line is this..This is being discussed over every table in the USA..Both sides.. [/quote] See that's what I was wondering!!! Hence why I made this post! So does anyone else concur with my theory that they are doing this on purpose? Idk I just can't believe that this is some kind of plan to better the country at all... It just doesn't make sense... What does make sense though for whatever reason is that they want us to riot... Maybe they want an excuse to shoot us to incite THE FEAR CONTROL factor... [/quote] It seems that all sides are unhappy with the current flow of our country. Change is a normal factor in our history, But I see your point as to how prevalent it is. [/quote] Everyone here is asking for a TRUE DEMOCRACY. Not a system that needs a congress/house/senate to vote on decision but a state democracy voted on by the people of THE STATE for decisions. Different places different styles different needs. They say the Feds need to step away and give people back the power they were supposed to have at the start of this country. The technology for this exists today. We are all so networked now that it would be so easy to convert to this style. Let the people decide whats best and if we go down then we know who's fault it is. [/quote] So you want 51% to vote away the rights of 49%? People are stupid and a democracy doesn't protect against mob rule. [/quote] MOB Rule is just a negative title designed to push people away from it. Theres really only 3 ways to handle decision of a large group of humans. Dictatorship- Which branches into many other forms of government but the general idea is the same. True Democracy- You can call this MOB Rule or w/e but the point is the majority decision is king. Current Democracy. A System designed to give people the illusion of power. When in reality the media and Feds generally control the outcome even if they don't rig the votes. [/quote] Only a fairly public school graduate could come up with this answer. [/quote] I apologize if it was to layman for you... but please feel welcome to elaborate on your opinion. What would you say is the problem with mob rule? Feel free to use your PHD brain to elaborate I promise it won't give me a headache. [/quote] I see you are a Ron Paul supporter. Since I am as well I don't care to argue with you. I wish,however, that you would rethink your defense of mob rule. That is not the way to go. Maybe a constitutional republic? [/quote] Let me clarify what I really want is the State to be in charge of everything except National Security and Foreign Policy. Meaning I want majority votes for everything in question that the fed currently rules over. Example would be taxes, medical insurance, drug legalizing, Gay marriage, abortion and pretty much all "Pressing" issues that shouldn't be delegated on a nationwide scale. I honestly can see the problems with MOD Rule but it doesn't mean what we are currently doing is any better. [/quote] Although not a direct-vote system, Hong Kong has an autonomous agreement with China for self-rule in all areas except National Security and Foreign Policy. So sadly, in a sense, China has a deal with Hong Kong that's better than the deal that the US states have with their federal central government. [/quote]
Video Reference for today's overheard conversation during my lunch.
EDIT: A Video a commenter on here showed me. Seemed very on the spot.
I love going out to eat here in Texas. We have a ridiculously high selection of restaurants to choose from so I have the luxury of most time being able to eat at a place I've never eaten before.
That being said I must say the chatter I've picked up through the last month or so have been in one word... INSANE!
Everyone and I mean EVERYONE is talking about how they can't stand what our government has become. Yes Obama is a big part of it but it's more than that now. They say it's the entire system practically!
Today I overheard a big group of people talking about the newly signed UN treaty banning guns. They were talking about what they would do if someone ever came to take theirs away and it wasn't pretty...
I just want to say this now... NO one is going to accept that here...
This leads me to wonder... Is this planned?... I can't imagine our government wouldn't know the reaction of the people if they were to try and do a gun ban...
This makes me curious that what if they are trying on purpose to piss the country off into a violent confrontation? I honestly don't know what the benefit of that would be but they can't surely be so stupid to think that half the country would rather die than lose their defensive tools?
I don't really know a solution to either side but I'm telling this chatter is not just small talk. These people are dead serious about this and everyone is getting grouped up on the same idea. I heard many heres heres in response to this groups conversation. Remember I usually go to a new restaurant everytime so it's not the same people I'm hearing this from it seems to be everyone around here.
Has anyone else heard from the general population talk like this?
