I agree with this qoute because if we start taking shortcuts in our socities our society will only get half of the job done. So in order for our society to prosper and thrive we must do our jobs in completeicity and we must not get hypnotized or mezmerized by the people who take shortcuts in a daily basis.

I think that this quote means that if people pay attention to our government than they will make right choices for the government and leaders. But if we don't pay attention and start getting lazy than we will not know about the cantidates and who to vote for. and we will have a bad government and politics.

i think that this is true because who wants a lazy goverment that does not function well.the lazy goverment will always find the easy ways out of many things. that easy way not always be the best for its nation. that little shorcut may make the nation worse than what its is already. so to be a good and really functioning nation you need a good goverment that actually wants its nation to succeed instead of seeing it fall. so the goverment has to try hard and not be lazy and take the shortcuts. what they need to do is try not to become lazy and try there hardest so that the nation will rise instead of fall.

i think this is true because if we pay attention to what we are doing or what we are going to do. we will succeed and have a good government. also in politics it can be good because they can come to an agreement or something. and they actualy wait to see what will happen or what they can do. but if we get lazy and start taking short cuts. we will have a bad government because people wont want to do things. also when they do things they use shortcuts to do things faster but they just want to do something.
in politics it is bad because they are not going to come to an agreement. also because they get lazy and want to do shortcuts so they will just do anything to get finished with what they need.

I agree because I think success takes patience not using shortcuts and good thinking which results in better government and leadership. The more the motivation and cooperation the better the better goverment and the more the leaders. If you do get lazy especially towards politics there's no hope for you because you have to take time to get all your thoughts together and make sure that whatever you do its to make the betterment of your government legally.

uhh, i think he's saying that we need to get ourselves involved in the government more, i guess we always pick the wrong people to go into the political offices. and that we're taking shortcuts to get the job done easier, and yeah... so thats how we get bad people in the government.

i think this quote is true because i agree that people have gotten lazy when it comes to politics. The more people that we could get to vote the more power we put in our hands. in my opinion some people shouldnt even have the right to critic president bush because some of them were too lazy to even get and not vote. i hope that having such a bad president has motivated more people to get up and vote to make sure that it doesnt happen again.

i think this is true because you can see it happening right now. People are becoming lazy and taking shortcuts which literally menas your cheating yourself.I think its important to work hard and have good leadership in order to have a good government. I think that lazyness is a bad habit that makes people have no sense of responsibility which causes destruction and chaos. I think that the government is really important so it has to be strong but right now its being lazy and not wanting to cooperate together for one purpose..to better the country but nooo they have to go and argue over whose going to rule .

I think what this quote is true because it makes sense. Just like us, when we get lazy, we tend to take shortcuts because we want to do as less work as we can. But when you are informed about things, then you tend to try since you know what the information is about. For example, with homework. When people don't pay attention in class and don't read the information they have to read. Then when it is time to do the homework, they dont know what to do. So, what alot of people do is not do it, then they go up to someone who did do their work and ask to copy them. So yea that is why i think tihs quote is true.

I don't necessarily agree with this statement because i really don't think good or bad choices are made based on if you are paying attention i think it is based on what the person thinks about they are talking about. They are going to vote on if they like it if they don't and they only vote based on what they like they think about themselves and they don't think about people that actually have to live by it .That is what i think about this quote. :):):):):)

I agree with this statement because to get a good government and good leadership it needs people to pay attention to what is happening. It needs people to take charge and not be lazy to do things. It needs good thinkers to get the job done right. When people get lazy and start to take shortcuts they only get half the things done properly. They dont realy know what is going on around them. They are cheating themselves when they start to become lazy. Everything turns out bad and nothing goes right.

I agree with this quote because once our society began to take short cuts, we began to become lazy and start to procastinate(something I have a habit of doing) not getting the job done. That leads to disagreements and conflicts forming a bad government.

i think this quote is staing that people do things without thinking it through. if people whould had seen that when after bushs irst term in office thay would have done something about it but thay put him in again. after they saw that it didnt work out but the where brainwashed because he promised alot if things but never kept them.

when the government gets lazy they mess up big time again if bush wasnt bussy doing something else he would have seen who the troops in iraq are suffering and would have brought them back.

BARACK OBAMA, MSNBC interview, Sep. 25, 2006
When people start to do bad in school, we take shortcuts and the shortcuts take us no were but a bad road. When we do good we take no shortcuts and do all the work and give A work. A work is what people get for doing good with out slacking and be bad. Like G.W Bush he has been slacking since he has gotten into office I think kanye west was right G.W bush dosent care about minortys. Because a Good president is suposse to care about all races. So he is not making our goverment better then what it needs to be and which the coutry needs so we ccan be a great usa. g.w bush have a bunch of cons and a little pro but his cons show way more then his pro's he is what happens when you do bad dont be like bush.

i agree with this quote becuase i think its saying if most of society get lazy and began to take shortcuts or the easy way out of things then they make things harder or less things get accomplished so we go down as a society and its what cause proverty. when most of society do the right and take all the steps to life with out any shorrt cuts where more succesful in life and the provery issues goes down and poeple would be more aware and involed with voting and the govner and politic issues and poeple like bush wouldnt be running our country.

I think that this statement is true because the democracy does a lot of times make bad choices.if we keep on taking shortcuts then nothing will been the right way.if you build a house and get tired and instead of using nails you use glue and eventually the house is going to break down and that's what is going to happen to our government if they keep on taking shortcuts. if they dont want to do it then they should just give up their job to someone who does.

I think this is true because if you do pay attention then you will know what happens in the govenment. But if you don't then you won't know3 what is going on in the government.

I think that that is more true then what I a8 4 breakfast. THe second statement is more true then when I couldnt find the shoes I wanted. That is what I think most of it is. When You get lazy and dont vote you may be the cause that the guy you wanted to win will lose times 10. Everyone is diffrent. Then If you do vote you will be cleard mind it.

i think that this quote is saying that if you take shortcuts then the things u took a short cut to will come out being or looking bad.if people are active in pertisipating in our government tthen it will prosper and grow for the better. i think that the amount of effort, time and persistance the better the outcome. i believe the amount of work you put is the equal to what comes out . the more you put in the better the outcome. the less the worse the outcome. you can also aplly that to government.

I guess wat people decide to do in office isn't always wat u c....If people will vote on wat they want 2 happend then the outcome wukd b alot betta...ut if people decide that they wanna do wat they wanna do and they jus wait 2 c tha outcome and then wen the outcome comes out they want 2 get mad and tlk about how they dnt want that person in office wen itz there fzult that they r in office. If all the peole who didnt vote decided 2 vote and they all wanted the same person in office then they may have a much greater chance at having that person in office.

I agree with this quote because I do believe if we had more people wanting to be involve in our environment we can actually have a good leadership and that can get other people involve on whats going on and maybe they would want to help. But if we don't keep up what were doing then we are going to have a bad goverment because no one is going to want to be involved in what we want to do with society and is going to eventually fall apart.

This is true because if people pay attention to the government they'll be qable to spot the prblems and maybe even solve them.But most people are too worried about themselves to worry about the government. If its a problem for the government to tell if their running the area right they should hire more people and this will make space for homeless people to get a job so this helps everybody.

I agree with this quote because we can have good leadership and good government if people pay attention on what is going on in the world. They need to know what is going on in the world so they can decide how to run a democracy. If they don''t pay attention, then they won't have an idea to make rules and stuff for people to follow to have goood leadership. When they do get lazy, things start to go wrong and out of control and it would be considered a bad government

BARACK OBAMA, MSNBC interview, Sep. 25, 2006

Barack is absolutely right. When we start paying attention to who is running for what and what they're stands are on certain issues, for example the biggest issue today is the Iraqi war. If you pay attention to all this you will be able to pick a good leader and vote for them based on what you've seen. But when people get lazy they don't pay attention to all this. They don't do their research. They don't know what certain candidates viewpoints are on what issues and can't pick a good leader because of it. So if they do end up voting they pick a bad leader possibly because they could go eenie meenie minie mo or just pick based on name. So yeah, Barack made a very intellegent and profound statement.

Lazyness would just make our governemnt worst which affects us all.

This is true because people now a days are loooking for shortcuts. Especially the people in office. After all the shortcuts they have taken they still havent learned not on thing. The thing that youd expect them to learn is that when you take shortcuts you miss the important things and when you miss the important things you make mistakes and when you make mistakes it leads to a very bad wgovernment. That is why we have a very bad way of life right now. so thats why i think this quote is correct.

And that if we let our guards down, we'll be stuck with whateevr electoral congress chooses. Am i right, kinda?? not really?? ok, whatever. I guess that's pretty much trrue, becauses i don't think the govenment really cares about what happens ot the people , so they'll just do what's best for them.

i think i kno exactlly what this quote is talking about, its saying that if people start recognizing someone that they kno will do a good job and that they kno will be a great leader of the united states then this country will be ran right and with no economic issues. But if people vote forsomeone who is just like a famous person(Arnold scghanjywer-however u spell his name)then the right decisions wont be made or some one who just says that they are going to do something great but never do it(gorge bush)then people get brainwashed into thinking that there the right choice but they are really not. sometimes people dont pay attention to the facts and just go by what they say they will do and they dont really pay attention to what they are really doind so that is what bad voting is. We need a leader that will actually do what he/she is supposed to do and a leader that will do his/her job correctly and someone that we can depend on to represent america...power 2 da ppl

i think this is true because you can see it happening right now. People are becoming lazy and taking shortcuts which literally menas your cheating yourself.I think its important to work hard and have good leadership in order to have a good government. I think that lazyness is a bad habit that makes people have no sense of responsibility which causes destruction and chaos. I think that the government is really important so it has to be strong but right now its being lazy and not wanting to cooperate together for one purpose..to better the country but nooo they have to go and argue over whose going to rule

i agree wit dis quote because if we start taking shortchuts in our socities our city or community will get half of the job done. so to be a good and really functioning nation you need a good goverment that actually wants its nation to succeed instead of seeing it fall. so the goverment has to try hard and not be lazy and take the shortcuts. what they need to do is try not to become lazy and try there hardest so that the nation will rise instead of fall.

I think that this quote means that if people pay attention to our government than they will make right choices for the government and leaders. and when people dont pay attention us as a society start slipn adn every thing will go wrong in this goverment. That is what i think this quote means.

I always believe that ultimately, if people are paying attention, then we get good government and good leadership. And when we get lazy, as a democracy and civically start taking shortcuts, then it results in bad government and politics.

well when ppl don't pay any attention then yea ppl won't really care of what the government say. yea i really don't kno haha...

I agree because if we listen of course ou society will do som much better. But if we just take shortcuts and dont complete the job well than we will do poorly of course and if we take short cuts your just completing half of the job. If you pay attention in a campaign then you willl know who to vote for and your socciety will do better. If you dont vote then the society will do poorly and you wont be able to complaign.

The quote is saying that we are needed to make the government stay in consistently good shape,for example if you see that the president has no elementary education and you dont say anything you are as much a part of the problem as he his

I say that this means our society or nation grows only if it is able to succeed and work hard. But if people don't work at all, then the society will go down. I don't know what this means because it's getting me confused and yeahh. Omg! Today is Esmeralda's last day and it sucks because she won't be part of the square for the rest of the week. I am going to cry if she starts crying. Have fun esme! :D

i Think this qoute is true because if u dont pay attention then you wont know whats better to vote for. it would be like guessing. if you pay attention you would know what to vote for and have reasons why. if you vote for anything it would be a risk because you always want to vote for the best thing.

BARACK OBAMA, MSNBC interview, Sep. 25, 2006

I believe this just means that some political officials just get lazy at times and don't do their jobs which results in a bad government and politics. Someone who actually pays attention to the problems around the community. Barack Obama promises that he will be focused on our economy and society which is what will fix the world. Someone who is dedicated year after year to their job will always be successful but those who get lazy and lose focus may just lose political leadership which leads to impeachment. The most vital time to be focused on the world of our nation would be when you are campaigning for office. When you show focus to the community or the nation you may have more of a chance to win that election because you appeal to the community's side of th story. You start fixing problems that no one ever really focused on which more voters to yuor side of an election. To be focused you must really work hard but to be lazy would be to lose the election and not care for your nation. When you are focused, you become a more thought provoking person and you become a totally different person appealing to all the voters' side.

I agree with this quote because it makes sense. If we didn't have so many ignorant people who are avoiding all of the big problems this country is having we would have a good government and good leadership. Once the government stops focusing so much on the little problems that we are having and put the spotlight on the bigger ones, this country would be taking a huge leap into democracy. When they are faced with a problem that they don't know the real solution to, they become lazy and do it the easier way or as they mentioned above "a shortcut" in order to not waste their time, energy, or MONEY. I think this country is a bit to lazy...thats just it

I agree with this quote because I do believe if we had more people wanting to be involve in our environment we can actually have a good leadership and that can get other people involve on whats going on and maybe they would want to help. But if we don't keep up what were doing then we are going to have a bad goverment because no one is going to want to be involved in what we want to do with society and is going to eventually fall apart.

is like if we start paying attention to the good things and bad, the government will not do such things like shortcuts that only gave us disaster in the community, the society use shortcuts to make it easy for them but an easy way is not always better, some of the shortcuts could solve some problems, our government is going to be lazy but if we pay attention then that would reflect our government.

i agree with this quote because i think its saying taht if ppl pay more attention to the government then they make better choices. in the other hand the ppl who dont pay attention to the government those are the ppl who make stupid choices.

This is soooo compltelty true. With hard work comes great results and and with lazy effort comes and messed up economy. We can tell we have a mseed up economy. Our nation is in alot of debt and our nation is in major trouble. We are in war and that is not a good thing to be in.
Life shoould be about enjoying life in general and not having to sacrifice your life for a leader who isnt responsible.

i agree because if people dont pay attention they will not know what is going to now what is going on in the world around them. and if they pay close attention are government can make some good moves on the state and improve the way we live. they can make are lives good if they pay attention and on the other hand they can make are lives bad.

i agree. with this quote because its like if you don't pay attention to tests and study and try to get an "a" on them your grade will go down.I think that the government is really important so it has to be strong but right now its being lazy and not wanting to cooperate together for one purpose
