"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Think you have a say on illegal immigration? You don't!

Oh, I hate negative posts....especially when their true...

You are probably like most Americans, you think you have a say in how this country is run. Think again. I mean REALLY think about it. Look at all the emails, faxes, letters, phone calls, articles in print media and on the web, blogging, ... what good has it done? Really, answer the questions? Our govermnent and elected officials are still doing exactly what they darn well please. Are you frustrated? Me too!

I heard a very interesting 'rant' on talk radio this week on 101.5 Jackson, Tennessee. The host of the show, GeorgeB, told the citizens of Jackson that they might as well accept the fact that they had no say in anything their government does. His comments were 'local' but could be applied nationally. In Jackson the government is run by a local ''health care system' and the mayor. Beyond that no politicians really have a say in what goes on. And thus, your opinion really doesn't matter.

Don't you feel that way about our federal government? As GeorgeB said, 'you may as well just bow down and thank the powers that be for what crumbs they give you, accept the decisions they make for you, and you will be much happier' because you can't change the situation.

I hope GeorgeB is wrong, but I'm not so sure. What say you?
