That is exactly true...
<<"They get away with it because most folks want their opinions fed to them.">>
Ya know, it's always nice to hear that people are aware that there is corruption in the government. It's nice to hear, that they don't like and they want something done about it. It's all nice to HEAR.
But when it comes right down to it, people are lazy. They don't REALLY care about corruption. They don't REALLY care about lies. I doubt that half the people bitching (whether pro OR con) about this war ideal even really care or truly understanding what the hell is REALLY going on with anything. It's sad. Truly it is. If more people got up off their asses and CARED, actually DID something instead of bitched...this country would be a lot better off.
You're completely right. They want opinions fed to them. It's easier than taking a stand and coming up with your own.
Just wanted to point out that was a good point =)
