    BOTH the Democrats and Republicans are destroying America. People need to wake up, take their "party" blinders off and get rid of the two-party system.

    RON PAUL 2012!

    Wow, when you have to point to FDR`s actions in the great depression as an example, you know you have a bad argument.

    " party systems are a bad idea. Republicans are a bad idea. WHy? Because theyre intent on destroying the US economy purely to prove a point.

    Theyre refusing to put a small tax on wealthy people, which would generate BILLIONS for the economy. Theyre refusing to put ANYTHING through that the democrats offer.

    And guess what, the way its going, Obama and the democrats will have to veto or ignore the republicans offer and raise the spending ceiling anyway. Guess what will happen, Obama will be impeached.

    It`s pretty obvious when you look what that guy is doing. It`s a good job that some republican senators are waking up tho, and voting against the republican offers themselves.

    Y`know who disagrees with you? Economists.

    Yes, the two party system is poo. No, no Ron Paul vote from me. It`s a waste of a vote. Seriously, you are only pushing the vote further in any which direction by witholding this single vote. I didn`t vote last term because I do not support the GOP, nor do I believe in the democrats view of a socialized America. Sure, the more people voting for a non-partisan shows that people are growing increasingly tired of the two-party system. But as long as people view this as the American way, as long as people blindly follow the two parties via empty promises, it won`t matter what you do. While I do want to tell you all who believe in doing away with the two party system, to JUST NOT VOTE and Boycott the whole damned money wasting event (none of the funds raised to promote a single candidate will NEVER get back to the community, even from non-partisans, as they won`t ever be voted in). I can`t exactly tell you to rally a group in your community for this cause, I don`t want to be black-listed.

    And the Democrats are refusing to "put through" anything that has ACTUALLY passed in one house of congress.

    What a stupid cartoon.
    Obama has CUT 500K gov`t jobs? B*llsh*t! Pay for gov`t workers has risen A LOT since BHO took office though, that`s a fact!
    And the Dems `solution`? Tax! More taxes will surely increase public spending, improving the growth of the GDP (0.4% in IQ2011 syas CNBC ) because people will have LESS money to spend! Simple; Marxism at it`s finest!

    We don`t have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem. I have to live within my means. I don`t think it all unreasonable that the country as a whole should do the same. The problem is a huge chunk of the population with their hand out. It`s all about your right to this or you`re entitled to that. It`s about how government can be the savior to all. Let me tell you this. You go looking for government to solve your problems you`ll be waiting a long time.

    Do any of you, regardless of affiliation, worry you`ve succumb to hubris in your views?

    Kevin Smith’s character had it right:
    “I think it`s better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can`t generate. Life becomes stagnant.” - Rufus

    How does this apply? So many of you treat your ideas (or more accurately, ideas you’ve heard from others) as beliefs and become zealots/extremists you’d mock for being excessive on principal.

    @DromEd, we have a spending problem? Really? What, exactly, should we cut then? That is precisely the problem Boehner has. He says we have a spending problem, but he doesn`t know what spending to cut that wouldn`t f*** up America even worse.

    We have both a spending AND a revenue problem. If my wage is cut to below minimum wage, I don`t say, "Oh gee, let me just starve myself or live on the street. That way I live within my means." I both cut my spending, AND I look for a job that pays me more than minimum wage.

    Unfortunately, the Bush Tax cuts put us into the "below minimum wage" category. ...and since no Tea Partiers want to let them expire when Bush SAID they would expire, we`re going to either have to raise revenue, or cut spending in ways that will lower the GDP to near catastrophic levels.

    The real problem we have right now is that the people who are trying to solve this problem are only interested in two things. 1) Keeping their jobs. 2) Keeping the special interest groups that fund their campaigns happy, so they can keep their jobs. No one in Washington cares about doing what`s best for the country.

    55% of all spending is on the military, I`d say thats the best place to start cutting wouldn`t you?

    I really need to stop caring about anything political, especially since I can`t do anything about it. They`re going to do a little more grandstanding before reaching a deal on Tuesday, and the world will keep turning.

    5cats said: "Obama has CUT 500K gov`t jobs? B*llsh*t! Pay for gov`t workers has risen A LOT since BHO took office though, that`s a fact! "

    Is it? I looked to see if u were telling the truth, and i couldn`t find any legitimate source to back you up, so,`s not a "fact". You`re a liar.
    As far as "people having less money to spend"`re right. Business will suffer if people don`t have expendeble money to spend, which means that any tax breaks considered should be focused on the working/middle/spending class. Hence, you`re wrong, Con.

    LOL China is not going to be the economic force the media makes it to be.

    While it`s good to know Mandarin, knowing English is way better.
