    Two-party system.

    Corporate elite.

    Hawks.

    Also:

    The irresponsible consumers/electorate, without which none of the above would be possible.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Re: What has Damaged America the Most?

    I took:
    2 Party System
    Political Spin Doctors
    Corporate Elite
    Government Corruption
    Hawks / US Pro-War

    I think the first two have become the same thing. The 2 party system is not in and of itself bad if there is mobility in the party system and the possibility of replacing parties. But current rules and propaganda have taken that away to a large extent. Corporate elite speaks to large companies having much more power and sway over the actions of the government than that of the People. Government corruption I think is self-explanatory. Hawks/Pro-War I think is very dangerous as it takes away from more of a proper defensive attitude towards our defense and more into an offensive/world police attitude which I think is costly on all fronts.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    What has damaged the US the most is unrealistic planning, bad investments, buying things not needed, maxing out credit cards, and no rainy day contingency fund.

    The Federal Reserve is #1. It is the heart of the hydra. The rest are just the heads.

    It seems the United States has become so populist that it is unimaginable the American people might be the main source of our political and economic problems. People have high standards of virtue and accountability, but they apply them on institutions rather than on their own persons.

    The midnset that you are entitled to a certain standard of living, and that if you haven't been able to provide that standard for yourself, it's someone else's fault.
    there's the single best answer to the question

    the dems created a mindset that existence is an entitlement to others' wealth
