  •  The last protest marches for me were against (4+ / 0-)

    the Iraq war. When around 2/3 of the populace wanted out of the Iraq war, I recall the words of Cheney, "So", and more recently Panetta's words on Afghanistan.

    There is no we the people left in this country.

    So, if you still believe in we the people, do you have suggestions on how we stop this madness of military forays and military bases around the globe, the MIC sucking the economy dry?

    I am as politicially active as I can possibly be, but I have little faith left in we the people to have power to change much of anything in DC. There was a time when I felt the opposite.

    Perhaps a million person march might garner some attention in the press, but an impact to change the WH and congressional policies, I do not know the answer. I feel such despair as the insane foreign policy in this country continues on decade after decade.

    We, the People, have allowed the MIC its place, with our fears, with our disinterest, with our abdication of social responsibility in pursuit of whatever geegaws have captured our attention.

    Saying "It wasn't it my name" is a cop out. Unless we rounce our citizenship and leave these shores we own all that is done in our names, like it or not.

    How do we stop the MIC, the WH, and congress, (that  never lack the votes for war funding)?
