charlie: 'Yes, each of us does have a voice in the matter by how we vote.'By which time it's too late - since most elections are won on rhetoric, not substantive issues. Nobody voted for invading Iraq/ Afghanistan, or even TARP. Pols get the votes, then go and do exactly what their respective campaign contributors pay them to do. Sure, we can boot them out later - but we can't undo the damage.'But when cuts to US-based, military bases are proposed, or cuts to huge hardware projects are proposed, who protests the loudest?'The respective industry lobbies - by speaking softly and wielding the biggest stick of all - $$$ signs.'The faster the US spends itself into bankruptcy, the sooner the rest of the world will have a chance to achieve genuine peace.'Very well put, rhetorically speaking, but I can't think of a more painful Rx for the American people.--------------------------Global Gains Home Fool
