Actually the two party system was designed fora much smaller populace; there were usually very few issues to concern the populace. The two party system was born of "simplicity" much like a checker game you are black and your opponent is white. I agree we need more choice!

You effin' moron! Shut them down and THEY would be sorry? Oh yeah, shut your place of employment down because it's hot where you work so you can take your unemployed asses home where your air will be shut off because you can no longer afford electricity. Smart idea, moron. Guess your kids will go on strike when the big guy that runs the household won't let them have air conditioning anymore. Go unions and Obama and the millions of morons who think the same way!!!!!!!!!! UGH!

So what's the answer?
Do we lower corporate tax rates? Would that really be enough to bring back "Profit Incentive...bottom line minded companies to come back"? This would help start an incline on middle-class America again and increase
our tax revenue to bring balance back to our fiscal house.
Is it enough? Their need for profit out weighs their Patriotism!
They have the jobs needed for Americans.
How do we convince them to come home?
We can't use force we're a free society and this would go against our very founding!
I'm open to suggestions and ideas..if the trend continues it doesn't matter what party controls the White-house or congress! Would a new constitutional amendment brought before the supreme court to decide if it's

Tell me! I don't consider this a partisan issue..it's a issue of national survival!

There is no one simple thing we can do to get the jobs back to the U.S./Ideas of reducing the regulations,taxes on corporations,etc.would be a good start.
One seperate idea presented by the New Yorker was to charge a tax on all products from China.Every item sent here from China would have something like a value added tax.Since we want the products,if they cost too much to buy from China,then some enterprising American might start up the business.Of course,China would do the same with our exports,so who wins?
For many of us one simple thing we can do is remove this present administration in Washington.
Notice the comment about Biden and his every week end trips at taxpayers expense.Check the GSA`s expense accounts and trips.There is no leadership there to require honesty or conservative use of the taxpayers dime.Neither the President nor the Congress wants to cut excessive spending.They should be replaced.

... a doctor makes a million dollars a year, for what? Why should he make more than the guy that fixes the power line in the middle of the night during a storm? The doctor can't even get electrocuted like the lineman can....
Doctors have to complete years of costly schooling before they can begin a career. And then have many more years of working and paying large monthly college payments before even getting out of debt and making an actual profit. Electicians have training, but nothing like that. Electricians also make great money. Electricians do put their live on the line sometimes. But doctors do too, just in a differnet way. They work with blood and needles and could catch a disease or illness. They also have other people's live in their hands. They run the risk of being sued too, which is pretty common. There are a lot of factors to consider.

I can see if you take an opposing view point,but absolute humiliation of one credibility is astonishing.Why you choose to belittle someone

Redistribution of funds is not something any one is willing to consider,that has worked for what they have.Why should they?It is not the American way!!Only the ones wanting to take from the ones that worked for what they have are the ones wanting to redistribute,so they can live the easy life on the backs of the workers.It will not work,has not worked since the time of the Pilgrims,is Communistic,while we supposedly are capitalists.Progressive liberals hide the fact they are communists wanting to take what others work for.

I will say I don't appreciate politicians that change parties mid-stream if i vote for some as a democrat or republican I think they should remain that instead of trying to stay in office according to how the political winds blow. No matter who they decide to caucus with!
Now if they change for the next election yeah maybe OK,but not before their current term expires. So yes on that I agree!

Got a little carried away,what is your definition of progressive?My actual thought was about the Pilgrims time when communism failed.Progressive to me is forward thinking--and that is what we should all be.I am registered as Republican,usually act more towards Independent,but that registration eliminates any participation here in any primary.

Good for you- as about the needy!There have been many here that fit in that category.We try to help a few we know.Kinda bad times now.

Walker wins! Will stay in office

Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker will stay in office, becoming the first governor in U.S. history to survive a recall election.

In 2008, Obama won Wisconsin by 14 points. Now, the Walker victory is leading some Republicans to suggest the state might be within reach for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. If Romney is successful in Wisconsin, he will be the first Republican Party nominee to carry the state since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

**********

Best news I've heard all day. Hard to hear myself say that coming from someone who use to be so pro-union. But not anymore after seeing what they are doing in this country. 7 plus million dollars worth of damage the taxpayers had to pick up, plus their disgusting behavior beating on people as well as underhanded lying and cheating.

Union bosses - nothing but crooks and thugs, living lives of luxury on the backs of hard working Americans.

And that's my opinion and until this corruption ends, will stay my opinion.

Their just as bad if not worse than the Chicago machine.

What are you getting at? I’m looking for ways to narrow the gap between wage earners and the obscene millions and millions corporate managers are pulling year after year. Clearly, it is the middle class, that giant money spending machine, that creates demand and a thriving economy
Wage/Price controls have never worked. Ever, in the history of the world.

What's obscene about the "millions and millions"? Who gets to set wages? Compensation? Sorry, that you don't like some CEO getting millions of bucks, but how many people can shuffle paper, and how many can run a multi-billion dollar international company? Supply and Demand.

Once you get into wage controls, why stop at CEO's? Let's just be "fair". Who gets to decide what's "fair"?

The nice thing is, if a company wants to pay someone millions, let them. If it's a poor choice, if they aren't worth it, the company will go out of business and the investors/bondholders will lose money. problem solved.

If you're wanting to generate wealth for the middle class, that's an entirely separate issue. Unless you're just wanting to see CEO pay closer to middle class pay, in that case, keep voting Obama. With the amount of businesses he's driving under, taxes he's proposing, etc, we'll all be paid the same rate before long. Zero.

Your comments are always so common sense, and when you speak it's easy to see you weigh things in the balance. We who see struggling people around us every day can hardly stand by and support the waste going on for the good times in Washington - so-called elected 'leaders' who appear to be in it for what they can get. A good example is Biden and his thinking that it's no big deal to spend our money -$20,000 - on a quick trip for a round of golf with BO. This is what's going on everywhere in government, and we wonder why we are broken.

We need to vote them all out this next round, and give someone else a try. For if we keep them all around another four years, we just get four more years of the same.

" The cost of flying Air Force Two is $22,000 an hour, so each half-hour trip to or from Delaware costs about $10,000. Each golf game costs taxpayers $20,000. At that rate, the annual cost to taxpayers of Biden’s weekend trips is well over $1 million."

Obama does what Soros and Ayers and those type of people tell him to do. He couldn't care less what Biden is doing. Obama is just arrogant enough to believe that American citizens are dumb and lazy. He believes they will fall for anything he says and they are just lazy enough not to care. Obama's reckless spending and failed policies can not be blamed on Biden. Although I'm surprised Obama hasn't started blaming Biden since the Bush crutch is no longer working. Obama knew that having crazy old Biden as the second in charge guy he would never have to worry about impeachment no matter what he did while in office. Biden is job security for Obama.

Yes, everything you said makes sense. The question is how much input do "WE" have in making these decisions? I've signed petitions up the bookoo to my congressman and senator's and written letters asking questions, but they are only one vote. I know this, but who are "WE" and how much do you think they listen - really listen - and care what we think?

I can remember when just about everything was made in the USA. I have things yet in trunks that have the USA label. An interesting story of how times have changed ~ about 25, maybe 30 years now, I walked into a store much like a Kmart, and there was a blue light sale. The counter was filled with women clogging the aisle. As it turned out, the reason everything was in such a hubbub was that the store was selling women's sandals made in Brazil. It was so unusual to be able to purchase anything made outside of American, that these women thought it was so cool to own a pair of sandals made in another country. The store manager said they would not be getting in anymore sandals because it was a one time deal. The store sold out in two days. Today, we are lucky to turn a product over and not see China on the label.

You pose some very good questions. Now where do we start?
