Well let me start off by saying I am a 27 year old male, Served in the military since I was 18, Went to military school from 16 to 18, I did 3 different deployments to Iraq, seen things I wouldn't wish on any of you and all I wanted to do was come home to my family and work a decent job. I served this country and I would figure it easy to find employment but I see that this is not the case. While we were having to be "Responsible" citizens of this great nation, our leaders were doing what they wanted and being immature childeren with our tax money and lives. I am a Democrat, I live in Ohio, you would think I was for Obama, but I did not vote this time. This country is in desperate need of help, now we can point and belame Bush, or Obama, but the times call for a different approach. This country needs to turn it's flag up side down because this nation is in distress. I love my country, I love the constitution of the united states, I love Democrat and Republicans, I get annoyed but you all are my neighbors and I would defend you all with my life and I have.... All I ask for, All I want is a decent steady job to support my family. I see secession is the talk of the town. I do not agree with Secession but instead of laughing at the "Far right" Republicans, they have a valid point. People at the bottom of the barrel are just sick of living this way. We need to do something about this. If we look back at the French Revolution it was fought because the lower classes did not have anything and were wore out from being worked to death with no gains. The American revolution broke France's economy and the lower classes had pick up the slack in tax and the king did not care. Sounds familiar. I just want change to actually happen. I do not want to see our nation split because I look back at all the lives laid down by SOLDIERS of this great nation and they fought for this country and they need not die in vain. On the battle field it does not matter if your a Democrat, Republican, from Newyork or Alabama, we were all stuck in the same mess. Something needs to happen..... Something needs to change. Anyways, love you all, god bless, good night. Just had to voice what's on my mind. I can not sleep at night looking at my wife and daughter wondering how the hell I am going to feed them and hearing the politicians saying their coming up with some grand plan to fix it. We need this to happen now. I work seasonal jobs where I break my back 70 hours a week in a warehouse to make sure they have a damn roof over their head and food on the table. Is it too much to ask for a stable job where I don't have to worry about being let go after Christmas. God help us all that are in this struggle.

Welp, have to partially disagree. We didn't have that many problems when Clinton was president. Bush started 2 wars that cost trillions and blew threw a surplus. It did start with him, but it is damn sure ending with Obama.

It will take longer than 4 years to fix, more like a decade. The next president in 2016 will still have leftover crap to worry about.

Some states seceding like Texas? That wouldn't be so bad
