    Re: Obama: Something is wrong with country's politics

    Hell yes something’s wrong with our political system.

    The system is now based on the theory that we need protection from greedy rich people, and that the solution is giving the government more power to protect us from them.

    But the disconnect will always be that the people we are given more power to are the same people we think we need protection from. The government will always largely be controlled by rich people. Even if you manage to change this for a short time, it will ultimately revert back the other direction.

    There is only one reason he is now willing to compromise. November 2010.

    To remind you what he said before those elections.

    Yes, let's bring back the man that turned a 2 year recession into a 10 year depression, and is at the heart of this problem of unsustainable, nanny state, unconstitutional welfare state to begin with....Good plan.

    Do you have any evidence to back up the crazy sh*t you just said?

    Re: Obama: Something is wrong with country's politics

    The 112th United States Congress will be remembered as the least productive session ever, worse than the 80th Congress, a.k.a., the "Do Nothing Congress."

    Standard & Poor's downgraded their rating of U.S. Treasuries based on this performance.

    The contrast with the 111th Congress which passed substantial health care and financial sector reform among much more, could not be more stark.

    Obama is right.

    Obama is right.
    I'll take the 112th over the 111th any day. I'd rather the government did less than more. Unless the more is deleting more regulations and laws.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    When I see responces like this it makes me wonder who exactly is the government? Do we elect a government? You want the government to do less instead of more do you have any thing speciifics in mind or is it just a generalization, do you think we should remove stop signs or let people drive on either side of the road what exactly is it that you want deregulated? We need to bring back the greatest President the only President to ever be elected 4 times President Franklin D Roosevelt
