How has the Obama admin and its acts done to mess with your view on the world and our government?
Clinton's came close. I saw crap oozing out of the White House but it seemed to stop there.
Lets see... My first political memory was RFK assassination. I didn't know what was going on other than my parents saying "SHHHH!" When the TV was on.
LBJ: First time I heard my Dad say "Asshole!"
Watergate. Looking back I think I messed with my folks a bit. "If President Nixon is bad does that mean that President Washington and Lincoln were bad too?" "Did you vote for President Nixon?"
I don't remember much about Carter going into office. The Iranian Hostage incident kicked me in the ass, making me take notice of what was going on. At the Dem Primary I thought that Teddy Kennedy would make things better. Then Carter said he would "kick his ass."
At that point my Dad decided I had to learn a few things. When I came home from school saying that everyone should vote for Carter because Reagan was "trigger happy" -leading us into WWIII. My Dad, well, he had a conniption. The weekend: Saturday he read my textbooks then Sunday he sat me down and said "I never thought I would have to tell you that your teachers are full of shit."
Over 30 years ago.
That is how I started out. 9/11 had me going from a peace mode to war mode where the government had to do things. Then I figured out that while I liked Bush the next Carter in office could use what Bush did to make things worse...
How did you come to where you are now?
