    Just messing with you a little, but seriously, what if the states don't want to adopt the Federal program? What if the majority of Wisconsinites want public sector unions as they are? That seems to be what the recall there is all about. And what if Ohioans want a referendum on the Ohio law, which can't go into effect for 90 days, by which time, it will be forced to a referendum vote in November? What if what the people want is not the same thing as what their governments are trying to force down their throats? Would you agree to Federal intervention, or would you let the voters of the states make their own decisions?
    What if? So you have nothing. I gave a solution but I know states will not do it because the unions have to much money

    No one it would have to be voluntary.

    So we're on this merry go round.

    Republicans going after unions, which hey, I can sort of understand, but that's if everyone has to sacrifice. Unions aren't being totally dismantled, and while I stand by them, unfortunately there is a pretty good point to the fact that why should state employees get bargaining rights when Federal employees don't. A very difficult point to counter.

    And then we go on the protest merry go round, the same ones from 2 years ago.

    Democrats are calling Bush Hitler, they're terrible people!

    Tea partiers are calling Obama Hitler, they're terrible people!

    Unionists are calling Rick Scott Hitler, they're terrible people!

    Hypocrisy strikes again in American politics, as it usually does. Thing is, it's often so blatant, transparent and obvious that you literally have to choose to ignore it.

    But it's cool.

    But the real issue I'm seeing here, is the amount of time and energy spent demonizing the other side, from Unions, to Tea Partiers, to democrats to republicans...

    I mean honestly, why even bother being a country anymore? If you want to know why you're in the predicament you're in, I suggest you look away from Republicans, Democrats and Jersey Shore and look in the mirror. Each of you is responsible for your own countries destiny, and most Americans don't take part usually, we're all keeners here, but the reality is most Americans are to busy working for their next paycheque, going to the mall and reading about Brangelina to care about any of this ****.

    You don't look like a country thats ready to sacrifice for the good of the country, you're not standing up and saying "Ok, we will with less for a few years to pay down the debt". Look I understand this point is pretty moot when you can't trust the politicians to implement a long term fiscal policy that will pay it down, but in the end, you can't have it all. You're going to have to make hard choices, you're going to have to suffer as a people for awhile, and you don't seem ready, you don't wanna give up what you have, even for a second.

    Is that the America that won WW2, that accepted conscription, that said "we will go without, we'll take rations" to reach an ultimate goal in a world that was not as comfortable as it was today.

    Again this is a rant, filled with generalities and hasty conclusions and I fully admit that, but somewhere in there is a point. And I think a pretty good one.

    Americans are always pretty eager to find blame, but are pretty short coming when it comes to solutions.

    There are very, very few times when there's a complete right and wrong answer, and those times usually always involve body counts.

    There's a solution to your woes, and the answer lies within you, and somewhere in the middle.

    That's the word, I stick to it.

    Jetboogieman :
    I am kind of tired of American politics and this back and forth. I am an independent, and I am tired of both parties and what they have done to America. Most of all, I hate the people who are far right republicans and far left democrats and can't admit their party is wrong, and when it's wrong. I hate people on these boards who try to twist every success as belonging their party, and every failure as belonging to the other party.

    Bush was a good president, things just got bad because the democrats took the house and senate... Clinton was a good president only because the Conservatives had the majority of the house and senate..

    ... ohhh please.

    GTFO

    I am saying, wait and see what happens with the recalls.... If you think the republicans are right, but the majority of the people disagree, then the GOP has to work on it's message or learn to stop attacking unions. So far, the approach doesn't seem to be working.

    Unions are not being attacked. States are trying to balance budgets
