    agree,
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Suggest you ask someone who gardens...they'll talk till you fall asleep on your feet! Better yet, get a book from the library. And there are enough gardeners on here to ask specific questions...

    Greetings, vasuderatorrent.

    Now how do we actually accomplish it?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Stop looking to government as your god to provide for all your needs. Stop voting yourselves money.

    Demand personal responsibility of all citizens

    Get government out of the way of business. Stop allowing us to be a nation of regulations so to promote an atmosphere where jobs are created resulting in less people on the dole and more paying taxes.

    Stop the corporate welfare. Let businesses rise or fail on their own

    Pass a balanced budget Amendment

    Sorry. The majority have already spoken. I will let the data stand alone.

    I'm fine with all of those. Now how do we actually accomplish those, considering neither of the major parties support any of those ideas?

    What ever shall we do? Oh my!

    You left out the option of what I would do if I was in charge of America - gather the criminals who claim America owes them money and put them in labor camps until they die. problem solved. the ignorance level is stunning and insulting.
