    Furthermore, declaring the United States government a farce because of an instance of misjudgment on behalf of a small number of Democrats is just a tad harsh.

    There is a time and a place for comedy. Personally I found this whole thing to be out of place. I think the problem is that he did the whole thing "in-character". In other words he was trying to be funny the whole time when really he should have just been normal Stephen. The whole thing just came across as stupid. He's making a mockery of something that should be taken seriously.

    In reality. The American government is still serving us well.

    The one that is confident that we can turn things around, and despite the large amount of bad decisions from democrats, this country's national and state mechanisms are still working well. Dissent is working well, the Republican party is being responsive towards the dissent against the Obama administration, and stand a significant chance of affecting policy decisions in the near future.

    Do you foresee, realistically, the removal of our constitutions? I sure don't. How about a violent revolution in the streets? Not I.

    Wrong.. He did not do the whole thing "in-character" just the first 5-8 mins. The rest was him being real. Try to stick with the facts please.

    And yet this pales in comparison to the horrors and dangers our young republic faced domestically. I know this seems out of step with the ferver in the realm of current event analysis, but I see these serious problems of our country, and still can have enormous faith in our ability to solve the problems. We faced far worse in our first decades as a Republic. I find your lack of faith depressing, and short-sighted.

    Be that as it may, no country in the world has been able to get out of the amount of unfunded liabilities that we are on the line for. At $100 trillion, we'd have to sell every Federal and state Asset, confiscate every house and sell it, confiscate every retirement account and auction it just to start to reduce that red ink.

    When the GOP refuses to raise taxes and the Dems refuse to cut, we're headed for real big problems.
