Considering the history of our country is relatively short compared to that of other countries, I think our system works fine. Here's the fault, the spoiled brat "I didn't get my way attitude" that has errupted in the last few years. Suddenly no one takes repsonsibility for their own actions. It's their parents fault, their teacher's fault, their circumstances in life. Whine whine whine. People have to realize it's no one fault but your own. You, in the end, are the primary contributer to your fate. You decide how your past will affect your future. No one can make decisions for you, you are not owed anything. You do not deserve to be given everything in life. Everyone must realize that life is not free. You create yourself, for better or worse. You decide how to react to life, and if you make yourself better or let yourself ride along, that's up to you. If the election had gone the other way, I would not whine and bitch about how I didn't get my way. I'd say, ok, I may not like Gore, but he's president, lets see how he does things. Who knows, he may have surprised me. But I would not stomp my feet, and whine and cry about how the system is flawed, like the media and most of the Democratic party did.
