As long as

I think we could call this generation the "as long as" generation. As long as I don't have to pay more taxes, I'll vote for a change.

I think the tea parties are great. I wish I had time to hang out at one; I'm too busy earning a living to pay the taxes, which I could say is a government plot to keep us enslaved so we can't be in protests. That sounds like something a rightwingnutjob would say, and heaven knows we can't let anyone think that (as if the left needed any help with conspiracies).

But the only protests that really matter are the ones that take place on election days.
