Call me stupid, but I've never been able to understand how a government can spent trillions when so many of its citizens can't afford to buy food.

Do you know how much it cost for us to maintain all of our soldiers and wars overseas and all of the money that is handed out to other countries annually?

One trillion dollars.

So we do the math and see that a full one-third of the taxpayers' money is spent on endeavors outside of our borders. Think about it.

Justx...It's a topsy turvy world. One day it'll hit you like a freight train and you'll see that forces out of our control are running the show no matter what anyone does. It took me years of refining my thought processes to realize this. At one point and time I too thought that the welfare of people was only disrupted because and only because of their own doing, but realized that there are dark and extremley evil beings behind the mechanism of this world. Deep think tanks devised to make the wealthy strive for domination. History proves this and to think that certain persons within this govt. are immune to greed and look out for the general well being of the less fortunate is a blindingly misconception that they've cretaed so well ast ot hypnotze us into believung this is true.

Believe me when I tell you that they don't give 2 red cents about you and me.

Yep Rick that's a third. I would be willing to wager that more than a third the money is spent on war and security.

There's one thing for sure, those trillions of dollars doesn't favor the American people. We still haven't found weapons of mass destruction or the man hiding in the cave.

All we are getting is legislature that take more of our rights away in the name of "terrorism" while we struggle to put gas in our cars, feed our families, afford medical insurance, afford medical treatment, and jobs.

Where's the balance? I see big corporations getting richer and more jobs being outsourced. If we really want a peaceful demonstration we can boycott the companies that send our jobs away and give our jobs to illegals. The under-skilled and uneducated need to work too.

We can boycott those places. They can't throw us in jail for that. We have the power to stop helping other countries with our dollar and keep the money we need for ourselves right here in America.

Pac, I agree with Tenaj. There's more we can do to fight the big corporations. I'm not naive and I'm not looking through rose colored glasses either. I've probably felt the same way as you for a very long time. The difference is that, no matter what I feel, life goes on. We still need to work to put food on the table, make plans for tomorrow, and contribute to our communities to work for change or it's time to leave.
