GUEST,Texas Guest BS: US Democracy on the ropes.... (30) RE: BS: US Democracy on the ropes.... 27 Jun 07

Rapaire - you're right, it's not the document, it's the way certain folks are "using" it, and being allowed to use it. It's the same way with Christianity - over the eons so many negative things have been done in Christ's name that go directly against his teachings - it's a crime of humanity.

I will end with what others have written before - for a democracy (or a republic) to work, one of the necessary components is a concerned, informed and active citizenry. To that, I will add that in the case of this country, for the most part, the citizens do not demonstrate that they are truely concerned about the "real" issues; they are most assuredly not actually informed; and, active participation has been reduced over the years to almost nothing other than the small percentage of folks who cast votes whenever it's election time. It is a shame, but right now, this country is headed down-hill; and the answers for positive change, if they're out there, are not apparent to me - I hope they are to somebody. Cheers.
