Well you canít just blame the republicans. Both parties have added to the mess. We have so many issues at hand. Too much spending, too many government programs, pork filled bills, and the list go on. The one issue that has always stuck out for me is the fact that our tax system is the most complex in the world. It changes so frequently that itís almost impossible to keep up with it. We would probably be better off if we used a usage based tax system but changing over would be a nightmare. Personally, I just think the government is too big, too powerful, and has too much influence on the economy. This will most likely never change though. We have a lot of issues that are a direct result of the government. It doesnít matter what the political party is, itís the beast of government that is the problem.

The ENTIRE government played a roll in this mess. You can't blame one side or the other, it was everyones fault.

They are ALL leeches. Each and every one of them should personally be held responsible for what they caused and be ordered to fix it.

You do remeber it's our taxes that fund the country right? It's our taxes that pay their salary, pensions, medical benefits. It was THEIR hands and decisions that got us in this mess, yet WE suffer!!

Thus government SUCKS!!!!
