Republican gerrymandering has changed our only democratic institution, the House of Representatives, and their politics of fear have made us cowards, isn't it time we changed our National Anthem?  After all we can no longer sing about our nation being the land of  the free or the home of the brave.  Considering its subversive message, we should be having a national dialog about replacing the "Star Spangled Banner" with something more fitting, something that will extol our "fear and fright" response rather than our no longer existent virtues.

  1. I second that emotion! "Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt." ~ George Sewell Republicans claim they want to cut taxes.

    Since Star Wars is seeing a revival: "Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." ~ Yoda

    Knowing all of this, why do Republicans continue to fear factor? The answer is simple: "Social control is best managed through fear." ~ Michael Crichton, State Of Fear Republicans see it as their way to control the electorate.

    The purpose of FOX political news is to promote collective fear in our country. Why you ask? I offer this: "Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd." ~ Bertrand Russell, Unpopular Essays It follows the premise of "divide and conquer".
