No, they are not angry enough. However, they are safe from terrorists. Yep. Safe. No one is dying because of it. We are safe. (insert horrific sarcasm HERE)

The elected officals provide the illusion of safety. The vast majority is not bright enough to know it's an illusion and gleefully trade their liberty for it. Point out that it is an illusion to people at your own peril.

That said, the democrats don't protect our liberty either and are just as guilty as republicans in their actions. Even if the empty suit with the 'D' label had beat the one with the 'R' label the status quo would be preserved. Real change can only come with a third party.

but i would say that it is more than that... real change will only happen when the citizens are actually angry enough to change the system. a 3rd party at this point will only be just as bad as the current large 2 as the system insists on a particular path in politics.

it is my belief that possibly with Bush in power and the R's in power for the next 4 years may just incite enough anger...
but that possibility is slim...

all said, people simply want to keep their worldview... not to face reality...

cause reality is harsh
