    That’s what I say Jack.

    Left and right have a lot in common. Our rights are being trampled and it looks the same from both sides.

    The big difference is, do we fix govt. or get rid of it? The right seems to say get rid of it. But I think we need govt. to protect our rights. Without functioning democratic govt. we get oligarchy, strongman, corps thrashing the environment, abusive lending, …., etc.

    Before democratic govt. there was feudalism and rule by royalty. All power was concentrated in the hands of a few. Now it’s getting like that again. We need to restore govternment for the people by the people.

    Some say it’s impossible. I say it’s not. Some say it’s not efficient. That depends on how you measure efficiency. Representative democracy isn’t easy, but it’s been shown to work if you work it.

    People have to pay attention and not let themselves be swayed by marketing spin and social engineering. When life gets too easy people get lazy. Life’s not that easy these days. We have to work harder to be effective citizens and when people get mad enough that’s what they’ll do.

    People are getting pretty mad.

    Reagan said government’s not the solution to the problem, government is the problem. But Reagan was wrong; that’s throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

    Instead let’s throw out politicians who represent big money interests and replace them with ones who represent us.

    I may have different political views than Harvey but I am in complete agreement with no blocking of internet.

    Being able to block the internet is what conservatives would view as an equivalent to taking away your right to own a gun.

    Conservative, liberal or other. Resist all efforts for government control of the internet and any power to block or restrict it.
