    Do you disagree with this statement?

    The federal government spent more taxpayer dollars than ever before in 2011 to subsidize Americans. The average individual who relies on Washington could receive benefits valued at $32,748, more than the nationís average disposable personal income ($32,446).

    How about this statement.

    As of now, 70 percent of the federal governmentís budget goes to individual assistance programs, up dramatically in just the past few years. However, research shows that private, community, and charitable aid helps individuals rise from their difficulties with better success than federal government handouts. Plus, local and private aid is often more effectively distributed.

    These are well-established facts, by the way!
    I'd like to see a non- biased link for those numbers, and the very last bit is nothing but conjecture you agree with.

    But assuming that the numbers are true that would have nothing to do with the depression we've been in which wasn't Obama's fault would it? Because the banks fell all because Sen. Obama was a doo doo head right?

Most of the other parties have similar issues that just don't appeal to a lot of Americans.

    It seems a legitimate question would be, is our problem our representatives, or those that vote for our representatives? Perhaps "we have met the enemy, and he is us."

    No, you are mistaken.

    Here is why the banks failed.


    Democrats were WARNED of Financial crisis in 2003 and 2005 and did NOTHING

    3? I'm thinking more along the lines of 4 or 5.

If someone went into a bank making that and tried to buy the average house without a huge downpayment the bank would escort them to the door. It isn't even possible to buy a starter home anymore and acquire equity because they aren't selling either.
    The average salary in Canada is $46K. The average house in Canada ranges from 150K in Fredericton, NB to $700K in Vancouver. I've been to NB. Fredericton is in butt**** nowhere and there are few things out there outside of drinking and going to university.
