What patriots?

What patriots indeed! If the population of America were alive 235 years ago, I think we'd still be living under British rule. There's no will to address any national problems within the hearts of Americans today. We allow petro-chemical companies to put our lives at risk everyday at their refineries because the industry refuses to improve safety at its plants, and also refuses to upgrade security despite the threat of attack from terrorists.

It's despicable and cowardly for the majority of people to let the federal government tell us all how business is going to be conducted in this nation. When we have a national problem we ought to get involved, but most people - as is evident - choose to remain ignorant and uninvolved with politics, whether at the local, state or national level.

When are the sheep going to rebel against the crazy shepherd?
