I believe that our entire political system is totally corrupt. we (supposedly) elect these clowns to work for us. What happens? they say screw you, and do whatever they choose to do. They don't give a flamin' monkeys butt about their so called constituents, till it's time for reelection. They all are in it for $$$ fame and glory that's it. I agree with Mike these rights are given us by the creator of the universe, and everything in it. We are to blame for much of what garbage befalls us, because we make lousy choices. Including who we again, supposedly elect to office. If they cared at all about what befalls us, they'd do the job they were chosen to do, and they would not stay in office for a lifetime. I am currently reading George Orwell's book 1984, and the parallels are astounding. Sorry for rambling on so badly, but I agree these rights are God given, and man has no business taking them from us, and the occasional victory for our side is done with nothing more than an eye on reelection down the line. I guess my question would be we've messed it up, how do we get back on the right track again? I'm not being cynical, just fed up with all the crap, and I'm looking for an honest answer, or answers.
