Well I'm back. Had some major computer issues with a damaged hard drive, not to mention meetings, family, school ending, etc. But now I am on a mission. Tomorrow I leave for Washington D.C.. Part vacation, part mission. I am going to petition for a change in the name of our great nation to the United Socialist States of America. With recent comments from Maxine Einstein-Waters "this liberal wants ... socialization, we'll take over the oil industry", to Barack's recent commencement speech at Wesleyan " individual salvation is directly related to the collective salvation.." and " we all can't drive, and eat as much as we would like, or keep our homes at 72 degrees...we need to give a little more".. (look at his tax records to see how much he gave over the years) to the ever-present take-over-healthcare,it has become obvious where we are headed. While there I will do my part to stamp out any last reference in textbooks to the rugged individualism that this nation was founded on, and replace them with glowing references to "achieved" 5 year plans, collective farms, and meeting target steel production, all for the glory of the state. It has become obvious to me that the market economy is an abject failure, and this nation does not care about the rest of the world, statistics on individual giving and U.N. contributions to any and every cause be damned. I envision a cross between France/Cuba/China, taking the best that each of these bastions of collective/socialist thought can offer this once great nation that has lost it's way down the road of individual freedom, market economy, and innovation. It's time for the workers of the world to unite, and take back from those who toiled/ invented/ designed etc. to make this nation great, what is rightfully ours. This is my dream. Change, change, change.
