The spirit of 1984 in 2006

Washington State pupils given patriotism test
Children in Washington State are being given 'Patriotism tests' which are completely unrelated to their studies. The paper gauges whether or not the student shows fealty to the power of the state and whether the student believes in the right to overthrow a corrupt government.

Hmmm, that is an interesting read...
I don't understand why more people are not outraged and taking action against the overthrow of We the People. I honestly didn't realize just how apathetic, complacent, impassive, and disengaged our electorate/population was. Even the supposed Progressive Activists. ZZZZZ. What happened to the Wellstones of the Dems party and the Libertarians from the Right??? This Bush-NAZI militarized state is beyond offensive and intrusive. I'm am this close (I am holding the thumb and forefinger of my right hand 4 millimeters apart) from giving up on We the People, errr, You the Sleeping. Screw it. Rise up indeed.
There aren't many Wellstonians in the Democratic - there never really were.

As for the libertarians - I know you admire them, but I find them to be no more than Republicans who need to put on a costume pretending to be something else. Kind of like McCain - pretending to be a maverick.
People don't want to be bothered and just hope for the best. That kind of disillusionment is what our political machine longs for so that "we the people" can be further brought down into dronedom.
I don't think I admire the Libs. They purport to be all about Freedom, Liberty, bla-bla-bla. We have had this discussion before and I agree with you. They are Republicans in snakes clothing. (that's redundant) I just had the notion they would stick to their platform and give some outspoken disagreement to this sham of an administration.

I am into another book on Wellstone and the more I read, the more disgusted I get about the very dronedom Tim speaks about. Plenty-o-bitching, weeping and knashing of teeth but no movement. Too few men and women of wisdom running this leviathan called government and not enough action against the monster. I am sad about that. I know I will again be out there this coming November, freezing my baggetts off in the rain with a Willy for Senate sign in my frost bitten fingers. One small voice in the rain... I'll change this world allright.
