View PostI really just find it odd how so many are just fine with this congress and previous congress and piling up another few trillion in debt this year and all the entitlement programs that we can no longer afford to fund - but then again it just points out the sheep who are just fine with things. Its pretty bad and getting even worse with govt growing by the day but I dont expect some of you to have a problem with that.

 

And I am not packing up and moving on - I am merely talking about changing who controls our govt - obviously another thing some of you have no real desire to change. The likes of 20 year plus career politicians make you giddy and tingly.

 

I'm not okay with any Congress in this century. Centrists have lost any voice they had.

View PostYou laugh, but this country was founded on the backs and brains of people used to packing up and moving on. Mass exodus, no, but we might well lose a lot of the best and brightest, further eroding our situation.

 

Dan, I'm not happy with where we're heading now, but it is hardly the end of times. Honestly, I don't know where our best and brightest would go because there's not much else out there unless they're looking to be humanitarians. The best and brightest are still trying to come here.

Ultimately it's the entitlement culture self-destructing. We now have so many people in this country that feel they or others are entitled that they control the electorate. Politicians need them to stay in office and won't disappoint. The cycle of increasing taking/spending won't stop until the system collapses. We may be watching it right now, but it'll happen in any case, because too many people no longer have pride or honor.

 

It won't be capitalism that killed it, it'll be what started out as "kindness."

View PostWhen you think about it we really didnt take to long to destroy this country and completely ruin quite a bit. You figure it was only over the course of a few hundred years that we took a government for the people by the people and let it become a government for the government.

 

You know Khrushchev promised to "bury" us back when he was in power....and he said that they'd do it from "within".....(and they are...)

 

We really need to clean house at the state and federal levels, get rid of all the career politicians who really don't serve you and me and enact term limits once and for all.

 

That's exactly what it's all about....but how do you "re-educate" the public? They will continue to vote for the "free lunch" at the table of socialism....

his policy and voodoo economics have prevailed for the past quarter century.

It's not possible to even deny that reality.

Not up on your "voodoo", but I only wish Reagan's conservative economics and lack of taxation, were the trend.....but they are not even close!

trickle up, government bad, borrow, cut taxes, deregulate, bust unions, has been in fashion since he arrived in DC.

 

And bigger government is good? And cutting taxes is bad? And stopping the unions from driving all our labor overseas is bad? Just where did you wake up in the hospital?

John Adams:

" We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

 

The man hit the nail on the head. The paperwork can only do so much. As the people have become dependent and complacent, and our Politicians morally bankrupt, beholden to that which keeps them in power, we find ourselves at this crossroad. Failure to act and reign in the Government will destroy this country. Our Constitution was not designed to manage this kind of mess. Especially as it has been trampled on and ignored by our Government for quite some time. It is up to the people and I really wonder if they are up to the task.

View PostThe dim wit Democrats have been rewarding bad behavior since 1932. Now with the One, (Barry) they will take yer tax dollars n' give 'em to people who overspend and overborrow and hard left bright blue cities that do the same.

 

Kinda makes ya go hmmmmmmm, "is Liberalism a mental disorder?" as one SF based talk show host states? He may have a point don't ya think? JR

 

 

While not a fan of the Democrats (most), there have been far too many Republicans along for ride of usurping individual and states rights...

 

With each day, my concern about the long term viability of our economic system and the future of what we currently call the United States grows.

 

I feel like I'm watching a movie, or reading a book that I know comes to a bad ending.

Capitalists run the country into the ground and you blame the government ?

 

The "good old days" werent so good... you'd probably be slaving away in a mine or factory for a pittance and living in a slum shack , like our immigrant ancestors did. If not for courageous individuals who stood up and organized workers we wouldnt have the leisure time to fish or be on the internet.

 

The Deck is stacked in favor of a few at the top, and they fuscked up AGAIN.

I hear much on this forum about the entitlement crowd. People on welfare and food stamps. Sucking the tit of the government. Hard working tax payers footing the bills. Pay my mortgage, pay my bills, etc. etc.

 

Its understandable but don`t you have any problems with spending trillions on wars that have`nt accomplished much for the benefit of America and most of it borrowed debt. Or Wall st. crashing and losing many millions of dollars of our citzens money with out of control and corrupt practices.... never mind the banks.

 

Why is it always the poor and disenfranchised that have caused all the issues with the economy?

 

Feel downtrodden so focus on the downtrodden?

And you blame capitalism? I think you had better crawl back to where you crawled out from....maybe Russia? And even there, capitalism has finally struggled up from the iron shoe..since the utopian concepts of big brother telling you what to do has finally hit the fan......

And granted, that early organizers of labor were honest men, and courageous, but their modern counterparts are mafia crooks.....and have sent our industry to foreign soil with their greed.

The liberal ideaology in which the burden of the nation's economy is put squarely on the middle class and those who benefit from their efforts do not contribute to the creation of wealth is what is slowly eroding a delicate financial balance. Then propping the broken system up with borrowed money has begun the ball rolling faster and faster.

And lets mind the banks, as well...And when is your Obamistic savior going to prevent the corruption and make these practices illegal, instead of immoral and corrupt?

The liberal ideaology covers the Republican and Democratic union for many years now.

 

Is Social Security wrong? Public schools? What shall we do with our sick and infirmed?

Agreed. But we are now going headlong into an administration who touts taking from the working class...you can only take for so long before the working class can no longer support the weight of the rest of the nation.
