The internet is a wonderful thing. You can find almost anything you want, and usually fairly easily. The government aims to change that at the drop of a hat.
Wikileaks is a site built on the basis of freedom of speech and freedom of information. The government believes said website is abusing these basic human rights and claiming the site threatens national security by spreading the truth. What people need is truth, and not force-fed bullshit from the government. Not to say I am anti-governmental. There are things we could only accomplish with a useable government... Sadly the opposite of progress seems to be congress.
I think what people can't do themselves they rely on 100 or so idiots in five-hundred dollar suits to do. I guess it's sort of a "we have no money, we can't do shit, you assholes do it" mentality. So right away we throw away our ability to think and do as we are told by some asshole with a bad comb over.
Who are these men to tell us what to do when they don't even do their own work properly? I mean, as much as everyone tears up the president, he is doing something the last guy didn't do, TRY.
I'm not saying anarchy is the way to go. My statement is far from that. I'm saying we need competence ruling our country. we need our freedoms back. I don't know about you but I want to be able to say what I want without fear of persecution. Well this blog has escaped it's original purpose so time to come back to that.
The opposite of pro is con
The opposite of progress is congress
Perhaps it's time we took a good hard look at our leaders and judge their ability to actually LEAD.
