I know all about the fallacy of . . .

calling a republic a democracy--

but this woman has the courage to speak out against tyranny--

I'm not from California, and I appreciate what she has to say--

she does talk about representative government--

she admits that America has had dark times--

I remember when, even though terrible things have been happening all along--

it did feel good to be in this country; I remember that--

she mentions 'rule of law'--

she talks about drones and Guantanamo--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--


At least she is off the couch.


earth to naomi ...... earth calling naomi

`Naomi .... here's some news for you honey--america was NEVER, *EVER* supposed to be a democracy. Please go do some basic reading on the subject and what the founders had to say about democracies.

other than that I share your thoughts, emotions, and passion.

Just don't continue to perpetuate the LIE that we're supposed to be a democracy or that promoting democracy (aongst other nations in the world) is a good thing. It's not.

And to the Code Pink bashers, stop it. They are exercising their right protected by the 1st amendment. I do not agree with their cause or philosophy, but I've met several of them and they are genuine people, and I would venture to say those ladies are more "active" in their beliefs than 99.999999% of the people bashing them here. Get your ass up off the couch and protest something that affects you, or zip it.

what on earth is a code pink basher--


I've never believed in socialism--

but, aside from the comments about democracy--

I know how she feels--

trying to teach my children from the constitution and then watch as they flounder around not sure what to do with what they encounter when they go out 'into the world'--

it's tough; at least some of them are searching and finding truth about it all--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Code Pink bashers

thanks for writing what you did. Yes I did bash them and Yes they are exercising their First Amendment right to speak their mind.

Also, it seems to me that it is a matter of the top down philosophy where the bottom believes in what they are doing but do not know the reality at the top. More active than 99.9999999%? Most likely.

Although it would be good if those on the front lines would do some research into the origin of the organization.

Ron Paul is My President

the introduction says it all

she's all yours. this is a good speech to embrace socialism as in "... create sustainable democracy."

just love the commie code pinkers flanking her.

Ron Paul is My President

I guess you have to be from

I guess you have to be from California to tolerate her speaking.
I just can't.
Like Really?

She follows everyone back on twitter.....

and re-tweets your tweets.

I like her

She is very consistent and true to her beliefs.

Idiot.... that's why you

Idiot.... that's why you voted for Obama.


She voted for Ron Paul, then when he lost she didn't vote either Obama or Romney.

more faulty civics

"Dictating government by us to them, by us to them..."
That has NEVER been the way government works.
The Legislature makes the rules, and enforces those rules with violence.
Democracy? When was the last time you voted for a law? The legislature as a democratic form of law making. Society is not involved.

how optimistic!

I guess the founding fathers should have just given up

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

portray it anyway you wish...

I guess its either go along with a lie or give up entirely-that's mighty defeatist. What about doing the work necessary to pursue higher and higher levels of truth; achieve new levels of understanding that lead to a solution...

Naomi Wolfe being faulty about the nature of civics is no different than "his majesty" being faulty about the nature of statutes and the judicial system.

Both fairy tales make the believer feel good for a moment, but ultimately, rob them of their power to make the change they desire.

Like a mechanic not understanding the how an engine works. Until he does, he will be unable to consistently and reliably fix the engine.



but there are people who say the car works when it doesn't--

and people who at least admit the car isn't working; Naomi may not have gone beyond that, but many people still think the car works, even if it won't start--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

thanks for that...

what are you referring to?

just using it as a parallel--

Naomi Wolf realizes the country is 'broken'--many do not.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Very nice......

I'm forwarding.
