How do we fix the problem of our leadership (both elected and the beaurecrats ) ruining our country? My opinion is neither Obama (socialist)nor Romney (rich out of touch with the average reality) are capable of dealing with the problems we face as a nation. Third party candidate ? Or will this insure Obama's re- election?

space cowboy5, really, after almost four years and you still are blaming the previous president, I am assuming that your are a democrat. When are you going to stop blaming the republicans and start taking ownership of your own president and party and what they have failed to do. The only thing this inept president has done is weaken a nation.

Bain, the company Romney touts was subsidized by taxpayer money to the tune of 37 million dollars. That's a free give-away. How many of you would like to get a free 37 million bucks, so you can later claim you made it on your own? That's not capitalism or socialism or communism. It's flat out theft for a so called capitalist company.

if i buy a car and finance it for your chidrens,childrens lives and get it with the defered balloon payment plan the next owner aquires, then we are talking bush jr.

the next owner willingly assumes the risk when elected owner of the car. when he extends the payments and restructures the loan to fit a better term, the previous owner screams foul and says "look what you did to my car" and claims he can fix the problem for 19.99 and unregulated loans.

the nation is stronger and we have far fewer illegals entering our borders. a zero net gain for the first time in years, quaddafi is gone, bin laden is gone, mubarak.... arab spring, we are safer.

Unless you own a professional sports team or a yacht I don't think you will find Romney to be any less arrogant. I would agree with you on Clinton but take it even further and say he has been our best (for our country) president in over 50 years.

There's never been a more arrogant pres. than Bush Jr. Remember when, a couple of years into his first term, a reporter asked him to name one mistake he'd made in his first two years, and he said, "I can't think of one." Either he was insanely arrogant or unequivocally stupid, take your pick.

So what your saying is, its not my fault that the car is being ruined, it is the previous owner I should contact to fix the problems I complained out, such as the breaks are bad, even though I knew it when I bought it. Instead of fixing them myself, I should continue to complain to anyone who will listen, even though I have had the car for 3 years and have not fixed anything. No I should own up to what damage I have caused and quit complaining that its not my fault, it the previous guy. Come on. As far as Quaddafi and Mubarak, please, please, what about Syria and Pakistan, know countries that harbor known terrorists. Don't see your boy jumping in and doing anything about these folks. Lets get rid of the "Bad Guys" that will not put up a resistance. Oh, lets not forget about North Korea, but then again, why bother, it might hurt his rating.

JPMorgan's $12 Billion Bailout - NYTimes.com (2008)
JP morgans 2 Billion Loss so lost total 14 Billion!

Fed intervention in the government debt market makes demand for Treasury bonds appear higher than it really is, as foreign creditors and other investors have fled U.S. government debt instruments and are looking elsewhere until the government makes serious attempts to curb spending and narrow its gaping deficits.

Goodman notes that foreign investors like Japan and China that once scooped up U.S. debt are shunning it. In 2009, such foreign purchases of U.S. debt amounted to 6 percent of GDP and has since falled by over eighty percent to a paltry 0.9 percent.

Without foreign buyers and a shrinking base of U.S. corporate and bank buyers, the Treasury has had to resort to the Federal Reserve itself to make the purchases. The Fed purchasing not only makes up the shortfall, but can keep long term interest rates artificially low.

"The Fed is in effect subsidizing U.S. government spending and borrowing via expansion of its balance sheet and massive purchases of Treasury bonds. This keeps Treasury interest rates abnormally low, camouflaging the true size of the budget deficit," Goodman writes.
From Money News May 16 2012

Also from Bloomberg News as well as PBS it is said that between 09-10 another 12.8 Trillion was used to "rescue" the debt.

Bailouts, Wall Street, Federal Reserve are cause of debt to include two ten yr wars.
Putting money into Social Security is fine and great, but that money is taken out. You can take out something that is not yours.
Fact is as grown adults we know that if there is no money you dont spend. People who run the government should not spend when we owe.
simple math -2-2= what.
if you dont have the money then quit spending.
Yes the i in citzen is left out.....

Here it is! Don't elect anybody that is an actual politian, Lawyer, or any other profesional liar!

Both parties have lost their morales one way or another. You want a good President?

Find someone with honesty, well business minded, and fears God. Then you will have the best President possible but good luck with that!

I'd like to thank all you smart Republicans who elected Bobby Jindal.

Not.

RUSTON -- New Living Word School in Ruston has been approved by the Louisiana Department of Education to accept 315 students as part of the state's voucher program, but the school doesn't have the facilities, computers or teachers in place to accommodate that many students.

State education officials wouldn't know that because site visits aren't a part of the approval process. Representatives of the Education Department spoke only by phone with school officials before issuing approval.

Piyush did that not the people that voted for him. Like Barry set up barrycare. Not all dems agree with barrycare just like not all republicans agree with Piyush and school vouchers. Just saying. Dont blame us like barry blames bush for everything that has happened during his watch.

George Washington put it perfectly when he warned us about the dangers of political parties. He knew back then that politics would become a team sport and the qualities of the individual would be lost.

Folks, what we need is someone (regardless of party) who is willing to stand up for the people of our nation and re-prioritize Washington D.C.

Unfortunately, the people who are most likely to do that are usually the first ones the establishment wants to get rid of or marginalize (Joe Liberman of 2008, John McCain of 2000, Hermain Cain of 2011, Ron Paul of ANY time period)

Right now the media is the most powerful entity in America and it is that way because we allow it to be. We allow them to frame the debates of our time and rule out anything that conflicts with their big money sponsor's opinion.

In short, it's time to think for ourselves and have the courage to stand up (even to the party we support) for what's right.

Anyone out there feel the same?
