"Great nations are simply the operating fronts of behind-the-scenes,
vastly ambitious individuals who had become so effectively powerful
because of their ability to remain invisible while operating
behind the national scenery."
Buckminster Fuller
[Richard Buckminster Fuller] (1895-1983) American visionary, designer, architect, poet, author, and inventor

If these indivuals are successful, we will all be just one big happy family under that wonderful group of thugs known as the United Nations. This thing that Bush has cooked up known as the "North American Alliance" is part of this international scheme. Wake up, America, and tell the boobs in the US Congress to vote against this .

    If by great nation, Fuller meant, maintains the most powerful weaponry and most efficient police state this should probably get 5 stars. If by great nation, Fuller meant the support and enhancement of freedom and liberty by a transparent government of, by and for the people, it gets a thumbs down.

    I can't help but feel that the "real America" has been hijacked. And sadly if it goes...we all go. In as much as I despise the last several US governments, I have tremendous faith in the American people. They'll find the way.
