  1. The fastest way to get anything done for the country is to elect a house and senate that will actually WORK with a president. Not a party who signs pledges, and vows to “make him a one term president” before he even begins. We have a serious problem in our country and it stems from the lack of cooperation that recently surfaced with the advent of our new “tea Party Republicans” in office. Sure we had a slow moving congress before…so what else is new, but never an intractible one.! If people bemoan the fate of our economy and the future of our nation, I would suggest they RECALL the uncooperative congressmen who sign pledges and make vows. Vote in Republicans who actually have the good of the country in mind, not the success of the party. Any state can petition a recall. Stop whining and blaming…just do it.

  2. I think most people don’t really know what they are voting for. Even if they did those elected probably won’t get done what they ran on to get done.

    I’m starting to believe that Vladimir Putin is right; “Democracy is a Myth”. Especially in a representative democracy where the elected do whatever they want anyway, after the election. Out go the people’s wishes as varied and obscure as they are, and, in comes the lobbyists.

    I also think we ought to start keeping a close eye on the military. They have been getting far to political for my comfort. The military should have no political opinion ever. That is the sole domain of the citizenry in my opinion. Manuel Noriega, Idi Amin and Andrew Jackson come to mind.
