Arlee Bird's Tossing It Out blog had an interesting topic on the state of the Union and what to do to turn things around. A lot of people offered up solutions involving government solving our problems.

Since I've been in a Rundgren mood lately (if you follow my DiscConnected blog, you'd know why), I though this quote from his song "Fair Warning" was relevant.

You know, wishing won't make it so
Hoping won't do it, praying won't do it
Religion won't do it, philosophy won't do it
The supreme court won't do it,
The president and the congress won't do it
The UN won't do it, the H-bomb won't do it,
The sun and the moon won't do it
God won't do it, and I certainly won't do it
That leaves you, you'll have to do it

We do not need the government to solve our problems for us. We're smarter and can do it cheaper and more efficiently. Don't sell yourselves short!

This fall, really vote for change. Look for candidates who endorse the Constitutiton, freedom and individual responsibility.


  1. Eventually God will do it.

    Thanks for the mention of my blog post. There were some great thoughts expressed.

  2. Lee-

    If you mean eventually God will do it because of the end times, I can't disagree.

    Until then, I do think it's up to people to do for themselves, and I really wish Americans would get that spirit back.

    If the origianl settlers had the same apathy as Americans today, they'd have all sailed back to Europe because there was no Bureau Of Inidan Affairs to intercede on their behalf.
