bluefoca, I agree with your comment. My thoughts are so similar I could have written your statements. We all are in part responsible for where we are in this country. Taking responsibility for what you do or don't do is a must. Asking the question of ones-self; what have I done or what am I doing to help myself and others to rise upon this mess. If we each cleaned up our own messes and change how we view ourselves as part of the whole, things can get better quickly and efficiently. One man did not create this and one man will not fix this. Put some skin in the game. Claim your authority over your life. If you change what you do and that change is positive, you will get positive results. You are the only one that knows what your needs are; address them. No one can fix what they did not create. Some of what we all experience, we created it ... now fix it!
