The majority is always wrong, at least 50% of the time. Then you have mob rule, and chaos. Ignorant people are easily persuaded to follow their "leader". Look back into history: The French Revolution, Russian Uprising, Hilter's Germany, Mao's China, Kim's North Korea, Jones' Jonestown... Each event resulted in major human catastrophe as citizens turned on each other, and were slaughtered like sheep.

Even the US is not immuned to mass hysteria. All you need are a few radio and TV hosts spinning lies and people turn into sheeples. An example is the idea you just repeated. The stimulus plan has been available for some time. I've skimmed through it. You can, too, if you care to spend the effort. If I held high officie in the government, I would have teams of people (smarter and better trained than me) going through every page, and negotiate back and forth among the many other teams in closed sessions. You don't hear the people in Congress complaining, only those trouble-makers on radio stirring the pot. And if you buy into that, and keep spreading the tale, then you'll have been used and everybody loses. Luckily, there are enough people around who would stop and check and ask questions...

(cont'd) And also Hannity. Yes, he is very conservative, even a bit much for my taste, but the reason I watch him also is because he will also "always" have both sides on, unlike CNN and those other left sided fonies and loons. I beg to differ with your definition of liberal-minded as"open-minded". I see it quite the opposite. P.S. I'm not in the market for your "respect". But thanks anyway. And the feelings are mutual.

Take it easy on labeling others without any proof. That’s what dishonest people do when they cannot win with facts. The truth never hurts those who truly seek it. So now the “deceiving and dishonest media, which is liberal” is controlling the internet? I wouldn’t repeat that in any normal social gathering. So if you cannot find any mention of your accusation anywhere on the Internet, that means the “liberal media” conspired to bury it—rather than that, maybe, just maybe, (cont'd)

(cont'd) that it was fabricated by someone? I ask you back, “Does the truth hurt or scare you?”

“And also Hannity... He will also "always" have both sides on, unlike CNN and those other left sided fonies and loons.” ROFL ! I didn’t know you had such a great sense of humor !! : )

My respect is of no consequence to you or anyone; it’s your own self-respect, and the respect of those whom you consider worthy, that are important.

Lily unfortunately for you and I this is not a perfect world. This being said the minority is right sometime. But I would like to think it is more often than not that the opposite is true. I am sure that innocent people sometime end up in prison for crimes they did not commit, there to I think it is more often the opposite though. Myself I think we are doing the best we can to protect our rights, and keep justice alive.

By the time this all unravels, it will be too late. Every one in washington agrees that the outcome is unknown, EVERYONE. Knowing that the outcome is unknown, obam, tonight is going on tv to tell us, he "inherited this mess." thus, incase a disaster issues, he has already thrown his get out of jail card. Unfortunately, the majority of sheeple, led by our great media outlets, will bahhhh along with anything that smells right. The minority, who's voice's have been silenced, can only go along for the ride. So to answer your question, all we can do is grin and bear it.

I guess you are right. Grin and bear it......but hopefully by voicing our opinions and dissatisfaction with the government, rather than waiting around like sitting ducks, someone will hear it and eventually get the big picture. As it stands, I feel like the proverbial fattened pig waiting to be slaughtered.

Who would make the decision that the majority are  wrong and the minority are right?  I have a big concern about judgment, and the people who make judgments.  I mean no offense to you; it is a very interesting question.
