Why I Have Faith In The System

This is an entry I've wanted to write for some time now, because it has a lot to do with me, and a lot to do with current events. It's about what I believe in and how I live my life. It's about handling the fact that there are so many things in my life that I don't control, and can't control. Because let's face it... there are a lot of times in our lives when other people are running things, and when we lose faith in those other people, it can be hard to cope. I know that many citizens of my country have lost that faith. They're sure that we're going to war with Iraq, we're going to start world war III and gabazillions of people are going to die, and there's no reason for it because g.dub is the biggest moron to ever walk on two legs and he only got into office because of a vast conspiracy to ruin everything.

Well, I didn't vote for Bush, either. And I don't think I really support this war with Iraq. But I also don't feel totally informed enough to outright say that it's flat out wrong, because I know I'm not fully informed about the situation.

So, I admit this. And then I have faith in the system. And I have reasons for it.
