    Everything, all at once. The world is like an old growth forest that needs a good forest fire to spark new growth. Burn it all down, and let the survivors decide what to build in its place.

    What we need is to take 3 or 4 steps BACKWARDS in time. We need to return to the ideals of the PAST, not the insanity of the PRESENT/FUTURE.

    War and revolution will just cause more turmoil, pain and suffering. I doubt the Greeks, Icelanders, Irish etc really want more turmoil. I think the US is already at war in general and has been at war for 10 years, I doubt more war will make things better.

    Honest politicians.

    Campaign finance reform.

    Non-greedy politicians would help greatly. Human compassion instead of human greed across the board would help immensely.

    Too bad many people believe such a thing a myth to accomplish though.

    Has there ever been a time when there wasn't greed and strife and all-around general crap?

    IMHO We need a voter revolution in America...first targets are far right and far left hyper partisan turds...THROW THEM OUT.
    Then re elect reasonable men and women that will work together to make america what it always was again.
    Americans need to learn to give and take and UNDERSTAND that not everything is going to be just how they demand it.

    I agree with this. Unfortunately, American voter's memories are way too short, and politicians know this and exploit it. We, as a collective group, need to be more pro-active in at least remembering beyond the last speech and promise.
