Less government.
Less government micromanaging, controlling, interfering and taking more of people's money to waste on all of the above.
That's the solution.
Such as?

Wars? Defense spending? Foreign aide?

2016, either Hillary or Michele Obama. I would have given Christie an outside shot but the rightwingers have already turned on him. He needs them to get the nomination then he can turn his back on them like Romney did.

Agreed. And there are good women in politics from both parties. I say let the women rule, I mean just look at the bang up job the men have done. Not to mention all the sex scandals with other women/men, hookers, interns, foreigners, pages, toe tapping, etc. Not many women embroiled in these kinds of things.

Romney found out how hard it is to run so far right and then move to the middle. He may have made it but the independents were still afraid he would let the neocons go forth on Iran. That and the ghost of W who may have paved the way for another twelve years of Democrats in the WH.

What did Bush want?????????? Obviously, it wasn't a balanced budget.

And tell me why Obama wants the US to be in a depression?

I smell a tad of your racism in your last statement. Are you a racist f*ck like some of your buddies here on Topix?

The next election will be a ripe moment for a third party candidate; the republican party is weakened. He can run as an Independent and probably get elected.
I don't think Michelle Obama has political aspirations; and I'd like Hillary to run but think she's not going to. We shall see, she will be 70 then, maybe too old.
I like Elizabeth Warren, the new Senator in Mass.

People like Terry Jones make Americans and Christians look bad. He has put Americans all over the world in danger because of his sicko comments and disrespect for others.
He brings in upon himself so good riddance.
Freedom of speech that is selective is not freedom.

Few intelligent people think Terry Jones speaks for anyone but himself. Obviously, radical Islamists like the Egyptian government are not very intelligent.

that happens every year as each government program spends any money they have left because if they spend less than they received not only do they not get an annual increase but they are cut to the amount they spent. Can't have that! September is always a very busy place around here.

Obamacare helps the uninsurable by giving them

$1000 a month insurance premiums!

Lets look at how cheap it will be (Kaiser):
"...A family of four earning $75,000 will pay $7,125 in annual premiums and as much as $8,333 in co-pays and deductibles, according to a preliminary estimate by the Kaiser Family Foundation. A single 40-year-old earning $30,000 will pay $2,509 in premiums and as much as $3,125 in cost sharing. For a 60- year-old making $40,000, the amount will be $3,800 in premiums and up to $4,167 in out-of-pocket costs..."
