Two Pence

you'll see to the left of my post i have a handful of blogs i read. they are the ones i try to read everytime i get on my computer. they tell interesting stories. whether its a sexy, make me horny story or some insight into their life i'm intrigued by them. they all teach me something about myself too. they teach me that without friends & different opinions we are just one big bunch of misfits. Walker asked if we felt so inclined to help make this point to anyone ready to read it. i'd like to say i agree with him & its original author. in our constitution there is an excerpt that states that in the event the government doesn't seem to be meeting the peoples needs & demands we could overthrow the government. i did find something in 'Lincoln's First Inaugural Address' This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember, or overthrow it but i'm sure i read it in association with the Declaration of Independence, as well. maybe we need to congregate & enforce our rights.
thats my 2cents.

So true.
I sit here and watch people complain about their politicians and how things are but when the time comes to stand up and complain or throw them out we tend to cross our hands and stay quiet.
We are getting to lazy maybe and would just rather let someone else do it but if no one does then we can't complain.
My favorite right is freedom of speech and i think we shopuld always excercise it
Thank you for the link.

You know, Walker, I'm not sure its that we're too lazy I think we're all afraid of the repercussions of the govt. I remember when I was young & the NORML group was so big. I was scared to death to voice my opinion & things have just gotten worse.

Hey Lindy life is
deep and we are merely
the swimming fish.

You may be right, I know my parents were terrified to speak out on Greece and brought that here but if we truely live in a free society where know we can speak out for our rights we must buit as is the same during election time people don;t bother to vote because they beleive their choice will not win.
I guess there are many factors but they have to change or we will find ourselves one day losing one of the things we cherish the most and that's our freedoms.
Have a nice weekend
