I believe this place used to be full of people going back and forth about the big events of the day but it seems this part of the forum has been dead for a bit now huh?
Politics used to be a major subject here.. I think that with what happened with Obama, on how on TV you had a dude who seemed promising and genuine, yet it all turned out to be smoke and mirrors and in the end, another dude in the office.
I think its given the world a type of helpless and "fuck it" attitude to anything thats going on.
What ever happened to men of great vision and revolutionaries? Good men (people) and good stories of good beating out bad?
So whats up with you guys? I honestly have given up on politics.
The US citizen has as much chance at making a difference in politics as he has making a difference in the football game he's watching on the same TV at home. Its all TV entertainment and ratings.
The fact that the only way you can even hope to run for president is if you have enough money, fucking MILLIONS, to compete with the rich currupt, perfect smile, perfect hair fucking ASSHOLES we call politicians says enough about "the system".
One thing I liked about reading the news on here was that I was always able to read the ground persons version of whats going on. We have people from ALL OVER the world here and I've always thought that special.
So... whats up with your worlds these days?
