I wonder what the founding fathers would say to you if they were here to say it. Might they say something like this.
“[I]t does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds….”
Sometimes those pesky Founders have such a way of putting things to right:
“If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
I do not post here often anymore because I agree that this forum is not much more at this point than a support group.
But I can tell you that if we do not find a peaceful way to get the attention we must have to make change among society, The change will happen anyway and it will be dramatic and consequential.
This club has grown quite a bit over the last year. 230 people could hardly make a difference, Unless these 230 people can make enough noise to get public attention. We will not be able to change laws in family court.
I think that we could make a difference.
I agree with Certifiable Patriot. and to add to what he is saying about paying child support. we could start making noise By joining every public forum on the internet and post a message daily that tells everyone we paid our child support today.
Us 230 people paying child support on a daily basis can in a short period of time with gathered support of other groups can create a huge problem for the child support system. the book keeping would be tremendous. this could be done legally and would make lots of noise. If we can bury the system in paper work we can make a change. Online installment loans for bad credit could help us a lot. Take a loan each time you need to make a payment – and it results in even more paperwork for the system.
Another thing we can do is every time we go to pay we take it to the family support division directly and secure a receipt. While doing that we could drop off Information in the offices that show what is happening to our children because of this oppressive system.
In political clubs of which I am a member I have managed to get people who have not yet been raped by the system to change their stance on the retorich they have bought.
So the question stands. Are we to get a hold of an idea stick together and at the very least give something a try.
I say we stick it to the tax payers and see if we cannot effect a change.
You comment derisively that “are we to be nothing but support groups for one another” and yet, you use this forum as your own form of therapy……you’re also obviously looking for support of one type or another and chatting on message boards is an inexpensive therapy for many people.
You’re wanting to reform the system – when the very simple answer is for people to stop having children. It’s that simple. And yet that difficult.
If humans were fair and honest, think about it…there would be no need for laws or systems at all.
But humans are humans.
Despite the religions they immerse themselves in, they don’t follow the dictates of their beliefs. They harm one another in so many ways….that there’s no alternative but to create a system to handle the misconduct….it’s inevitable and unavoidable….
You’re late – there’s no laws that say you have to stop at a four way intersection – but there’s an unwritten law that says everyone stops, looks and then proceeds…..but you’re late….so you run the corner and strike another car….killing people……there has to be a system…and it’s only as complex as we force it to become.
