I was watching MSNBC's Hardball last night, the only show that's not on Fox News that makes sense. During the segment which has some guy going around the country and gathering a group of people together and asking them questions about politics, this time is was Iowa Caucus voters, he asked the question "Should the Dems be attacking Bush or going after each other". Only three of the people there said they should be attacking Bush. Now mind you, there were all Democrats. When asked why they shouldn't be attacking Bush, the overall answer was that they felt that the Dems should be talking not about what Bush is doing, but rather what candidates are going to do for them. "What are you going to do for me?" Chris Matthews, I think, brought this point up. What ever happened to the days of JFK? Remember when he said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"? What happened to that? Now it's all about how the goverment is going to help me, what can they give me. We've lost our way. We take and take and take from this great country, yet most give nothing back.

You may have noticed that I've changed my phrase at the end of my post. I'm going to keep this quote. If you've seen the move Tears Of The Sun with Bruce Willis, great movie by the way, then you may have seen it at the end of the credits. It's a quote from Irish philosopher Edmund Burke. I think it says it all.

The Only Thing Necessary For Evil To Triumph Is For Good Men To Do Nothing
