    While I agree with this...for every politican saying "vote for me and I will give you some of their stuff" there is another one who says "vote for me and I will ALLOW you to keep some of YOURS"

    Voting isn't the problem. Americans aren't the problem. The government in its current state is.

    I agree in the sense that a big portion of the population DOES NOT EVEN PAY ATTENTION! Unless it comes to their doorstep, they are too busy updating facebook-watching american idol etc etc etc.

    Apathetic, jealous, lazy, myopic voters are the problem in this country. Tho who are easily swayed by class warfare tactics, who watch American Idol regiously, but wouldn't read a political analysis or watch a debate any more than they would volunteer for an audit.

    Though sometimes I think adding to that are single-issue or angry mob voting too.

    It's 1858 but the issue isn't slavery: It's 'is this country going to be a progressive-socialist state or are we going to be true to our founding and have liberty for all.'

    To paraphrase Abe Lincoln, we'll either be all of one or the other. We can't be both.

    As opposed to smart, generous, giving, moral Americans?
    Is the dividing line at the voting booth?

    Lew Rockwell says that "Voting is not the problem, Americans are the problem".

    Are there no good Americans left in the greatest country on Earth?

    I don't like Lew Rockwell!:steamed:
    And I've got news for him, the people of this country are not the problem.

    Tell me JB, how did we get to the point at which we are at if not for the people continually voting in these assassins of liberty?

    I don't agree that they are "assassins of liberty".
    I don't think they have the power to destroy this great country.

    This country's in far better shape than you Ron Paul supporters, and doom and gloomers think it is.

    We're going through hard times right now and it will probably get worse in the near future, but don't underestimate the American people.

    They've prevailed in worse times and they'll make it through
    the coming crisis.

    The people are not stupid because they rejected Ron Paul,
    and America will not end because he won't be president.

    Lew Rockwell.com (Eric Peters) is wrong.

    You guys live in the freest country on Earth and all you can do is b**** about it and find things wrong.

    There's a problem alright, but it's not with the country.

    Different perspectives lead to different conclusions.

    Yours seems to lead you to believe that the American people are still of the same mentality as their great grandparents.

    Mine leads me to believe that most are quite a bit more shallow and immature.

    What an original response.
    I'm impressed.

    Skillfully criticizes me, yet artfully avoids addressing the topic of discussion.

    The problem is the growing percentage of the electorate that is ignorant, uneducated, lazy, stupid, and selfish. It starts with kids in school being graduated without being properly educated first, taught to be reliant upon the government and to respect it's all-knowing, all-seeing authority.

    Once these inadequately/improperly educated children become adults, they are fully accepting of the idea that they don't need to be self-sustaining members of society. They are ready to embrace the big government teat. They are taught to feel entitled to everything the government offers them, and not to care that the government must first seize it from the more productive members of society.

    The politicians don't care about entitlement crowd, aside from their obvious power to re-elect them. The producers of society are little more than the piggy bank from which to bribe the entitlement crowd.

    It's sickening, but worse yet, it's our fault. Collectively, we get the government we deserve.

    OK, so the big question is:

    What is the alternative?

    Aristocracy?
