    Well your opinion is worthless as can be, I formed mine long before talk radio ever came into being. I was a gung ho anti commie patriot from Tenn who joined the Army to fight the commies in Nam came back even more to the right after seeing the commie loving Democrats made us lose the war and what the communist NVA and Viet Cong were all about.

    Didn't care for them over there and even less over here. So don't go telling me how I formed my opinion or how my friends who feel the same as me formed there's. If anything most of conservative talk shows are more PC than I am. Thank you, thank you very much

My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."

    Without the direct support of our representatives, no person with official standing could do what has been happening to us for years. This didnt happend overnight, its been planed this way for a long time, before WWI. And its not going to be corrected, until we realize that we now have a goverment that is a criminal enterprise, in every sense of the word. A goverment that breaks its constitutional laws is by defentition, an unlawfull goverment.

    Most americans know something isnt right, but most are still in denial and want to blame the top, as though we lived in a kingdom and ousting the king will make a difference, its a wet dream, for our king, like any king, has no power, unless those below him give him such powers. The fact that I see people arguing about Obama/Romney etc in here, shows why this insanity keeps going on and on and on.

    So whats the answer ?...well, from my perspective, things will have to get a lot worst before we as a people will do something to shake things up. What is scary, is that it may already be too late, and that things will just have to take its course. Like an alcoholic in denial, were just going to have to hit bottom, before we look at ourselfs in the mirror, and realize the problem is not the addictive........

    Good post. Not sure about you guys but up here representing your constituents is almost a thing of the past. Basically you follow the party line or you get turfed. You still retain your seat but not being an independent you have little power and say. Well that was the theory.

    But May is right. All MPs are powerful. She is proof of what even the most disadvantaged MP can do -- if they are not muzzled and leashed by a party leader.

    But almost every MP is muzzled and leashed. They are told how to vote. They are told what to say. And most obey, because obedience is rewarded and independence punished. Even cabinet ministers have been reduced to ventriloquist's dummies, mouthing words chosen by the Prime Minister's Office.

    Worth reading guys, different political system but you should get the idea. The thing with this woman who should be a nobody, heck she is the head of the Green Party, she is siring things up like most wish they can. Backbenchers from both the ruling party and the opposition party have been courting her opinions. Why? She is getting her voice heard and actually giving some clever second thought to proposed legislation. And the people that we elected that get muzzled by party politics see something very seductive in that.

    Mind you she is sharp as a tack. Lot of politicians are not. Kind of why they go with the flow and accept the party line.

    Nice story, printer. Reminds me of Jesse Ventura a bit. Same result will happen. The big parties will team up and destroy anyone who does not "belong". This might be one of the reasons George Washington despised political parties.
