    My sentiments exactly. Conrad retired from the senate last year. Pretty level headed guy, a democrat in a very red state who know how to work with people across the aisle.
    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.

    Most of the problem centers around campaign finance reform. It use to be one could donate any amount to the candidates and the parties. There were no pacs or super pacs used to get around this or a person or pac running his supposedly advocacy or information commercials that are nothing less than campaign commercials for one side or the other. No money bundlers etc. It seems to me the more limits, changes, rules etc. that congress tried to place on the money in politics only led to more loopholes and end runs around the law to what we have now.

    I think we were much better off when only candidates and parties were involved. But that is just my opinion. Now we have so many outside groups running their ads in behalf of the parties and candidates one doesn't know how to take all of this.

Such is our election system.
    That, more than anything else, is the biggest problem we face.

    Please be patient while I add the poll.
    I'm pretty sure I wouldn't vote for a family member if they associated themselves with today's democrat party.

    Because they have nothing to do with each other. Banks receive their low rate at the discount window because they put up a huge amount of collateral, their assets are easily defined which reduces risk, and the loans are for incredibly short periods of time usually less than 24 hours. It is primarily used to cover temporary shortfalls that result from daily activities. In fact I'm not sure if a bank has ever defaulted on such borrowing. Students on the other hand borrow for very long periods of time and usually have nothing to guarantee the loan, they also have a historically high default rate in the double digits. Cutting student interest rates to below inflation is a surefire way to encourage colleges to jack up their prices to match families access to these funds. It will cause temporary relief and entrench a longer term problem. It's populism and its wrong.

    If you want to address student loans do it seriously. If you want to offer up debt relief do it overtly. She was engaging in chicanry, taking advantage of peoples feelings towards 'Wall Street' and 'Big Banks' to push a deeply flawed agenda. I wont vote for her.

    I totally agree. Big money controls our election system. election day boils down to a choice of one bunch of corporations, wall street firms etc on one side backing a candidate and another bunch of corporations, wall street firm etc on the other side. So we vote to decide which of these folks will have the inside tract to favorable legislations, tax breaks, government contracts and the like. The candidate are just the face of these people. sad but true. Then you have all these corporations and wall street firms who donate huge chunks of money to both parties and candidates. Like they really cares who wins, regardless of the winner, the winner owes them big time.

    I find it fascinating that so far Rand Paul is neck and neck with Ted Cruz. I did not expect that at all. I also find it interesting that so few people picked Christie, who seems to get more ire from conservatives. Admittedly, poll has not been up long, but I do find these early trends interesting.

    Completely agree. Really spot on point.
