OT: Revolution Calling

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Just watch the television Yeah, you'll see there's something going on

Got no love for politicians Or that crazy scene in D.C. It's just a power mad town But the time is ripe for changes There's a growing feeling That taking a chance on a new kind of vision is due

I used to trust the media To tell me the truth, tell us the truth! But now I've seen the payoffs Everywhere I look Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

Revolution calling...

Everyone's using everybody, making the sale I used to think That only America's way, way was right But now the holy dollar rules everybody's lives Gotta make a million doesn't matter who dies

Revolution calling...

'An occasional revolution is good for the country". I just hope it's at the ballot box.

Almost all revolutions achieve only the replacement of one parcel of rogues by another.

Unfortunately no one in his right mind who is worthy of serving as a politician would want the job. We need to destroy our current government and start over from square one, applying the wisdom we have gained from the failures of our current system.


I think it would be better for most of us to have a new parcel of roques. Problem is a lot of people would rather have someone that they can constantly complain about, than to actually do something to change it.

I got distracted looking at the picture of the waterfall and reading Philip's Travels With Samantha. The picture is so beautiful I wish I had it hanging over my computer.

"a" you say "no one in his right mind who is worthy of serving as politician would want the job." I think some of them start out with high ideals, and then the get DC disease, and power hungry and "worthy" goes out the window--or may that's the only type that run in the first place.

"I tip my hat to the new constitution Take a bow for the new revolution Smile and grin at the change all around me Get up my guitar and play Just like yesterday Then I get on my knees and pray We don't get fooled again ... Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Right, a revolution is what we need. That's what the Russians thought in 1917. If you want to change the world, get involved with it. Stocking up guns and talking about revolution is a coward's way out.

-- NoSpam (nospam@nospam.com), April 22, 1999.

Until we can change the mind of the electorate, it is not going to matter what happens in Washington. It will continue to be business as usual.

No Spam, I'm afraid you are right.

Anybody want to go throw tea in the harbor?
