Or rather our need for it does. Why can't the days of Star Trek be hear now? No one would need money, I wouldn't be freaking out about paying my bills, no one would care about the price of gas, etc. That sounds heavenly. Unfortunately, I'm here and in this time, so I do have to deal with it. When is the government going to wise up? I'll tell you when: when they benefit financially from helping US citizens. This may sound cynical, but the people in our government don't care about us at all. I've said this a thousand times to my friends: the government, big business and the media are in bed together. None of them make decisions without thinking about how it will benefit their bottom line. It has nothing to do with what's best for this country or its citizens. If any politician says anything else, they're lying.
