Too many states dependent on government. Must cut defense spending to help pay debt. No longer afford all the fraud and wasteful defense spending. Defense contractors is just more dependent on government. Like republicans say we must have less spending and a smaller government.

Congress does want less government, less regulation, so they can spend more on themselves thru DOD contracts.

No the past four years has been a roller costa for so many of the American people of all races. I'm sure some would say they are better off and its not financial. This Country is heading in the wrong direction and with the wrong leader. Black, White or Yellow, we need a new President. One who can handle the problems facing our nation. Obama is taking the Country in the wrong direction and it's
time for a change. Moving Forward? In what direction? Higher everything!!!!! We're accepting everything that rolls down the pike, NO MORALS, and that is not healthy nor good.

You can't stop a determined terrorist, you can strip the rights of free people under the guise of fighting terrorism.
