United we stand, divided we fall - a slogan no longer applicable - we've become a deeply divided nation since Bush and Cheney - Obama cleaned up what he could given that the American Congress when shifted to the Right - took oaths not to cooperate with any proposals for lifting the nation out of Bush's he..ll. Their sole goal is not to help the electorate - but to destroy Obama in every way - and never take responsibility for tying his hands with their well-financed oath taking lock-step group of religious ignoramuses. Romney will have to start at least a one war to look like a autocratic, powerful leader, and reward his war-profiteering friends - of which he will have many. To pay for the wars - we'll once again have to go into debt - borrowing money from China - enriching them even further. We could never compete with both China and Russia in league militarily or soon, financially. One day China will be outsourcing labor to America.

Wrong direction. The US Constitution is on life support. US citizens can now be imprisoned indefinitely without due process by order of the President (he asked for that specifically to be in the NDAA 2012 BTW. lovely.), virtually stripped searched, humiliated and groped, expatriated, KILLED, spied on, arrested for protesting near any government official, put on a watch list for having served in the military or for having more than a week's worth of food, all in the name of security. Yeah, I feel so much safer now. And that's not even touching on our ever-growing conflicts and uncongressionally approved wars, the dollar crisis, unemployment, disaster recovery, our national debt and the fact that the DHS has purchased over a billion rounds of ammo over the course of this summer.
Definitely the wrong direction. We need to repeal the 16th Amendment, get back on the Gold Standard and get back to the Constitution with the Bill of Rights. We also need for the two major parties to stop pointing fingers at each other and start working for the benefit of the Nation instead of themselves. Can it be done?
I think the country is BEHEADED and moving in ALL directions GOOD, BAD AND WORST. GOOD = Many policies domestic, health, tax they are just good. BAD = They are not having good tuning with the allies. WORST = International policies are the worst and the cause of real disturbance throughout the world.
need a statesman.. none in sight (our options are well meaning). What we NEED to do/hear.. will not be popular; and you wont find it on foxnews nor cnn. the return to great-plan in my mind would take 8-10 years minimum. its taken a village and lost perspective by both sides to get here. have witnessed (inside/out)
I've said it a million times, we didn't get where we are over night, so, it's going to take a magician to bail us out, since no magician can help for real, it's just going to take time to recover, things need to be done the correct way. No loans, unless you have a job and can repay what you owe, this among many other things caused the collapse.
