  • The demonization of individuals is one thing I always found interesting about our culture. Americans always want to find someone to blame so that we can somehow make things right. And for whatever reason, it always ends up at a Congressional hearing somehow. Whether it's oil spills, hurricanes, volcanos, or what have you, it always has to be someone's fault for forgetting to put a cover sheet on his TPS reports (Watch "Office Space"). It's such an incredible waste of time and resources that can and should be used to actually solve the problem.

  • To Mr. Lewis and theoneinthearmy, you are ssooo right. I used to say our government was at the root of such and such problems but have came to the reality that it is our society; our friends, neighbors and the faces we pass every day that empower the "demonized individuals". I am in complete disbelief of the actions and words coming from our current president and I too have had thoughts that if he weren't our president our situation in the world would be different. However Barak Obama did not appoint himself. He was elected by the voting public. I believe that here in lies the real problem. The voting public constitutes only a small percentage of the citizens of our great nation. And a high percentage of the voters base their votes only on the information provided to them by the nightly news and their favorite news paper. The demons change with the ebb and flow of the news worthiness of any given story.

    Unfortunately it is not an easy task to be well informed of the truth and facts. I personally put a great deal of faith in the fact that God is in ultimate control and some day soon will send his son to take care of business here on earth. Until that day I will continue to utilize the internet to research the facts of the politicians/demons (the titles sometimes blur together) before I show up at the local poling booth.

    I encourage every one who is eligible to vote to do so!! Even if you are not sure of the facts of every candidate on the ballot I feel it is your patriotic duty to cast a ballot of votes. Take some time to get to know about the people who are representing you in Washington. Vote for the ones who share your feelings on matters such as abortion, US national debt, government spending, laws governing oil drilling and exploration....

    Simply go to and type in the subject of your choice. I believe that everyone should devote an hour a week to turn off the television and get informed about their respective political representatives at all levels of government and then EVERYONE VOTE for the candidate that best represents your ideas and beliefs. When we the people get informed and take action there will be a monumental change of direction in our government at all levels. Until then the demons will govern the rest of us.
