Thank you very much for sharing your perspective. I didn't think that your post was rambling in the least. Complacency is probably the biggest threat facing our country. People simply do not remember the sacrifices that have been made on their behalf and the hardships faced by those who came before them. I hope that you are right that our constitution will protect us from those who throw out our entire system for expediency.

The other night I watched a movie called "Gabriel Over the White House" which was released in 1933. It was funded largely by William Randolph Hearst. The film advocated for an American President becoming a facist dictator to solve our country's problems.

Franklin Roosevelt was given a copy of the script and "He liked it so much that he took time during the hectic first weeks of his presidency to suggest several script rewrites that were incorporated into the film." The film is in the public domain and can be seen in its entirety on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz8sNARc6mw

From Wikipedia, "Following the election of Barack Obama, People magazine film critic Leah Rozen included Gabriel over the White House as one of "five films you should absolutely see before inauguration day."" There are those in this country who would gladly give Obama dictatorial powers.

A few of them would be too many, but there appears to be more than a great many who have this desire.
