    (Hey, nice to see ya too!!!)

    So we have finally arrived.
    (Cool!)

    Based on the "legal" dissolution of a city government in the US, Democracy is no longer the law of the land.

    We the People have placed OUR POWER of self-determination into the hands of politicians, who we then TRUST with OUR POWER, to manage responsibily on our behalf and for our benefit, and to do so within the bounds we all agreed upon when we TRUSTED THEM with OUR POWER.

    That is how a Democracy is supposed to function.

    However, it is now LEGAL in the United States to disassemble a city's government.

    People, if you cannot see THIS IS THE LINE - then please tell me - if this is NOT the line, then what the FUCK, is?
    (You're an idiot of course!!!)

    The CONTRACT is broken.

    This is NOT about MICHIGAN.
    (Sure...)

    This is about ALL OF US.

    Keep talking about the 2012 elections. Keep being distracted by open mics (sorry, I don't believe in "accidents" and Mr. Obama). Keep being distracted by fine political theater, like we saw in the House today, which has so many a flutter, which, in the end, signifies NOTHING. Why?

    Because what happened in the House is MEANINGLESS in the face of what occurred to ALL AMERICANS in Michigan today.
    (O.M.G. :eek: what happened???)

    I swore an oath to defend our Constitution, and I fear it is too late; there is nothing left to defend.

    If you cannot see the END - the DEATH - of our Constitution - in the events in Michigan, I urge you to read up on 1930's Germany, and how the German people did NOTHING when their government was eaten from the inside by vile greedy monsters.

    If you carry on tomorrow, and the next day, and the next, as if all is the same, as if it is "business as usual," and keep merely strolling along while Rome burns all around us...then all I can do is welcome you to your future...good fucking luck...

    Time to stand up. Time to fight. The free ride is over. Now you have to pay for your freedom.

    Or recognize you are CHOOSING to give up your freedom in favor of this fucked up, unjust, immoral SHAM.

    YEAH MAN!!! Speak Truth To Power Man!!! It's all over man!!!

    WTF is this retard upset about??? Did Trump find Obama's Birth Cert.????? :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Where were these addle brained morons when Jenny Granholm was leading the state down the sewer? How many property tax payers in the state were totally screwed when she got the system changed from paying those taxes in arrears to paying them in advance over the course of 2 years so in effect we were taxed twice?

    That lump of Canadian trash increased every tax and user fee that she could get her fingers on and we still kept going down.

    Now when Detwat, Flint, Pontiac and other cities have sucked every last cent they could out of the rest of the state and we finally get people in office that want to hold these ghetto mayors and corrupt school boards accountable, NOW they complain?

    Of course. The Governor is a Republican and is trying to fix the h***hole that Democrat politicians made of the state. When the money spigot is turned off they yell bloody murder.

    I find it funny really. Look at every stinking shithole city in this country. Look at the top 10 most dangerous cities in America and then take a look at who has been leading those cities:

    St. Louis, Mo-Democrat
    Camden, NJ-Democrat
    Detroit, MI-Democrat
    Flint, MI-UNK Party
    Oakland, Ca-Democrat
    Richmond, Ca-Green
    Cleveland, OH-Democrat
    Compton, Ca-Democrat
    Gary, IN-Democrat
    Birmingham, AL-Democrat

    Notice a trend here?

    2. Yes. We must STOP participating in this system. Updated at 12:37 AM

    Edited on Sat Apr-16-11 01:03 AM by JFN1
    For it is no longers OURS - it is THEIRS.

    We sold it to them, a piece at a time, with complacency and laziness and apathy.

    Yes, we were seduced by promises of a broken Dream. Yes, we were lulled into a food induced, shopping filled, debt-ridden, dishonest, near-coma-state of existence.

    This is all true.

    But these truths can no longer be used to justify moral cowardice and indecision.

    Everything we do in our lives, right now, is governed - not by LAWS, not by DEMOCRACY, not by MORALS or GUIDING PRINCIPLES.

    No.

    Our lives are goverened exclusively by, and for, PROFIT.
    So he admits the Democrats (with the help of Republicans) have seduced us with "promises of a broken Dream. Yes, we were lulled into a food induced, shopping filled, debt-ridden, dishonest, near-coma-state of existence" and the remedy is ....

    Spending more money and blaming businesses that provide jobs for ... what?....telling govt to stop spending money and provide a climate that provides for job growth?

    5. Right now, you and I are playing by "the rules." Updated at 12:37 AM

    We go to work, to school, take care of our kids, pay taxes, and for the most part, act in a law abiding way.

    This is the social contract you and I have with each other, and with every other American. Without this contract, and our continual, daily decision to abide by the terms of the social contract, our society cannot survive, for it is based upon our agreement to follow the same rules.

    Those to whom we have given the privilage of conducting civil affairs on our behalf, have abandoned their compliance with the contract.

    Thus, to continue following the terms of the contract, when those to whom we trusted with our power are not following the terms of the social contract, is to be foolish, selfish, short sighted, and cowardly. In my opinion.

    In other words, to continue playing poker with a table full of people who are cheating, is, well, stupid. So what do you do, in this circumstance?

    You get out of the game, because the game you agreed to play - poker - has definite rules which all players agree to - or there is no game. How can there be?

    We cannot continue to participate in a system controlled by people who feel no obligation to the social contract we have all agreed to follow.

    Time to stop following the rules of the contract, and when enough of us have the courage and determination to do this, we can then begin the conversation of what to do next.

    Until a majority of us agree the system is broken and thus the contract nullified, the corrupted system will continue to perpetuate, because we will continue to feed it.

    And the longer we continue to feed it, the longer we continue to conduct ourselves as if all of us are still bound by the social contract which defines America, the harder it will be to free ourselves.

    We are no longer citizens, you see. The events in Michigan saw to that little inconvenience today.

    No.

    We are now property.
    Is that it!!? Fiscal responsibility makes one "property"?

    7. We need a nationwide general strike

    Shut the economy down. Go out into the streets and stay there, like the Arabs. I fully expect the fascists to give the order to shoot, but I think most of the military would defect.

    We've got this. We would so win, and probably with a lot less bloodshed than the Arabs. With our culture and shared myths about America, I just really don't see our police and military willingly turning on us. Not if we got out there in large enough numbers. And the entire world would be watching online.

    I was imagining that today, the world watching an American revolution online. I got chills.

    We just need to get out there and do it. Now. Before they learn too much from the Arab Spring. Before they get too much control over the internet. Before they get settled in, and change our culture and norms to the point where the security forces would turn on us.

    21. It's not just those states. Shit like this is going on in almost every single red state.

    We can't let them succeed.
    Because they know that conservative policies DO succeed if allowed to go forward.....so they do everything they can to not allow conservative policies to happen...especially now that there are conservatives (tea party) who are holding Republicans accountable for their votes and policies.

    19. I hate to say this, because it is so pessimistic but I don't think elections

    can save us this time.
    We need revolution and I'm not talking about war in the streets or secession, violence is always a last resort and especially in this case since we are talking about the nation with the largest army in the world, I mean this: 1. Mass general strikes of workers and students. Shut the whole system down at once, hell in the spirit of the newest Oscar winner(do I really need a sarcasm tag?) "Lets go Galt on these fuckers." The thing is, this must be done by the majority at once, just a few people is meaningless. 2. Mass marches and protests on Washington and every state capital demanding real change, it worked in Egypt it can work here.
    When I see comments like these I just sigh and thank God that the DUers are the minority even withing their political party.
