recovery is unlikely. no unity among citizens. no honesty or service in government. everyone is too lazy to act and too selfish to sacrifice

Kinda pitiful that some of the high level drug dealers operate a more cohesive business and even militias than what our own country does.

China & so many foreign countries own our debt. We are very dependent on China for virtually all goods. Manufacturing has left here rapidly leaving us without many jobs & dependent on foreign governments for money and goods. Added to the problem is that you have automation & robotics which replaced workers. Also, the countries which were previously obliterated during various wars have recovered & produce goods for export which we depend upon. Oh let's not forget our dependency on foreign oil. Our government spends billions upon billions to make every other place better rather than invest in our own fuel dependency issues, US poverty solutions, education, etc. Many citizens would rather live better on the draw than make money to support themselves. So, to answer your question, I'm thinking we are going down the drain. Pessimistic, yes. <sigh> :(

Someone once said on here that he or she knew local professionals, teachers, factory workers, clerks, and most any job you can think of, who are struggling or have significantly decreased their standard of living over the last couple of years. I too know people like that. So not good locally!

Whiny, slanted, biased, pessimistic! There is always HOPE and the nation will continue on. Differently perhaps, but it will progress.

Of course there is always "HOPE"; however, the likelihood of the "HOPE" being fulfilled is not likely. Guess I'm not as optimistic as you like! LOL

Hope? I don't believe so. It's not being pessimistic, but being realistic Outlaw. You can't possibly believe that we are better off today than we were say even 30 years ago? We may have more gadgets, but the USA is turning into a cesspool of lawless citizens. Abort babies or kill them in their strollers- what does it matter? We are a weakened society for sure. We have glimmers of greatness and compassion, but basically we're done. You can say what you want, but in the most basic way, we were so much better off when we had not tossed God out of our society.. you can barely even find him in church these days. That's not the only thing wrong with the country, but it sure tells you why a lot of stuff is going down. JMHO

Liberals took God out of the schools and then guess what happened: a bunch of school shootings, that's what. And then people act all surprised, as though they didn't know this would happen.

The people at Sandy Hook Elementary brought this on themselves. You took God out of the schools, God isn't watching over our children anymore, and bad things happen. You have only yourselves to blame.

And I am not the only one saying this, everyone from the CEO of Chik-Fil-A, to James Dobson, to Governor Mike Huckabee, to Billy Graham. We all know the truth.

And the same thing goes for our military. Because of Obama and his agenda of "political correctness" and his condoning of homosexual perversion, we now have more gays serving in the Army than we ever had in the Navy. And guess what: soldiers are getting killed. God is no longer watching over our soldiers.

You brought this on yourselves when you voted for Obama. Last election people in this country had a choice between doing what's right, or voting for the "cool" black president who had "gifts" for people who don't work for a living.

You had a choice. And you decided for all of us.

All over America, people are facing financial ruination. Floods, storms and wildfires are destroying millions of homes. Because God isn't watching over America anymore.

Turn your back on God, and God will smoke you. God has destroyed countries more powerful than America, just look in the Bible. History has a way of repeating itself.

And now this younger generation think they know better than God??? Guess what. If you think you know better than God, on judgment day God is going to load you into a smoker and barbecue you with the homosexuals, the muslims, and the rest of the human garbage.

But hope is not lost altogether, because there is a growing contingent of American patriots who believe in God and aren't afraid to say it. And we also believe in owning lots of guns, too. And there are more of us then there are of them. This is our country, not theirs. We are taking the country back.

Patriots like the Tea Party are the ones who put up the capital to colonize America, patriots like the Tea Party are the ones who fought in the revolutionary war that created our country in the first place. We will take over America. This is our country, not Theirs.

People get the government they deserve...Obama supporters were voting, while Christians apparently didn't. Now, all of us are going to be taken down. We have taken God out of America....why should He "bless the USA"?

Dear IDIOT: Then your immediate solution to this nation's problems is to wallow in pessimism and despair and HOPE for an economic religious miracle to come in the POTUS election of 2016? Hope is not an evangelical term--and I did not mention prayer, you did. I

The concept of 'hope' is a secular term not an evangelical one. In no way do I believe that this nation is 'better off,' than it was 50 years ago. Pessimism and resignation accomplish nothing; prayer alone, ditto. Hope, optimism, and hard work will do more for Americans in the long run. The nation will continue--but the future will not be a retrograde. On the whole, this post is an excuse for those so inclined to whine, cry, wallow, and blame others for the situation. Happy wallowing y'all--I have more constructive things to do. Anon.

Wallowing? LOL That's a crock.. I'm just realistic and old enough to see what has happened in my lifetime... Just how many AMericans do you see that have grabbed onto the hope, hardwork and optimism missive? IT's the exact opposite. Back in the early 80's when RR was president, yes, you did have hope and optimism.. but sadly, it has dissipated with each passing year. Do you REALLY think America is going to pull itself out of the financial hole it is in? I do not. YOu call it wallowing, I call it realism. Doesn't mean that I am going to give up, but again,I'm realistic.

I learned a long time ago that realists are regarded as pessimists to some. Personally, I prefer to deal with reality rather than sugar coat bad facts.:)

as usual - you dont comprehend what you read. i didnt say pray - i likened your stupidity to that of a religeous zealot who says to pray. them ment of hope was in the same context. to answer your question (not that you will comprehend the answer) no! i dont expect wallowing or miricles to be the answer. the solution is perhaps un-attainable. "we the people" would have to stand together and, somehow, i dont know how, force change. to be honest our whole government needs to be dismantled but the impracticality of that is mind boggling. so - do i have the answer/solution? no! is the tripe you blather about on this site of any value? NO NO NO! mostly you are just full of yourself. some sort of nacisistic idiot i think.
