Gotta love it. I think this is why people have such a problem lowering budgets and find raising taxes so much easier. Soemone wants to cut something that takes up money and people come out of the woodworks with all these buzz sayings like "this is a tremendous error!" or "This is the backbone of this countries economy!" or "Jesus will smite you down if you do this!".

In a dictatorship however, someone says anything, there heads are chopped off :D Kinda jeolous arent you ;)

yes you're right; the USA is probably the freest (free-est?) country in the world in many ways, that's why the government needs good corporate media like FOX, CNN, etc. has anyone else heard that saying "propaganda is to democracy as violence is to dictatorship" ??

The saying seems backwards. violence "gets things done" in some peopels eyes in dictatorships but propaganda... well.. propaganda can work in any direction, for or against progress, for or against the ruler, for or against whatever interest has the spotlight on it.
