    None of the above.

    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.

    I voted for these:

    Government Corruption
    Tax-paid Unions
    Welfare & Gov't Dependants

    **Government corruption plays into government waste/earmarks and the like.
    **I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Tax-paid" unions, but I see unions and especially those idiots who've given into their oft' times outrageous demands, as being a serious economic drain....especially in the pension area.
    **Our welfare/entitlement programs are completely broken.

    what's a tax paid union, and doesn't family and children welfare account for a miniscule part of the budget? do you believe unions shouldn't be able to negotiate their wages and benefits?

    I don't know what a tax-paid union is either. Ask Noodle. I believe most union leaders are corrupt ***holes and their memberships are filled with people who have absolutely no idea what a fair wage is and don't realize how lucky they are -- even when they drive their own companies out of business. Family/children welfare is only a part of entitlement programs. Read SS, Medicare, Medicaid, VA and SS Disability, Public Assistance including Food Stamps, yada yada yada.

    Oops! Thought the word censor would take care of ass. Ha! Can I say that here????

    Re: What has Damaged America the Most?

    Unions should be allowed to negotiate wages and benefits, but at times their demands are totally unreasonable.

    I voted corruption, federal reserve, 2 party system, hawks, and welfare.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Really, "What has Damaged America the Most?" comes down to one culprit - the citizens of American.

    All that **** in the list would likely not have happened if we had bitched against it when it was being passed, or worked to reverse it at a later point in dime.

    Re: What has Damaged America the Most?

    Rational irrationality combined with the ability for artificial persons to lobby our govt. That covers it


    wiki has a nice thumbnail of it:

    A voter has very small chance of influencing policy. Therefore, the vote he casts is of little consequence to him. There is no incentive for a voter to invest time and energy analyzing the consequences of a policy. However, a voter derives some benefits from voting. It allows him to signal the kind of person he is, who he associates with. If there are no consequences in being mistaken about the effect of a policy, it becomes "rational" to hold the most pleasant opinion, or the one most conducive to socialization.

    This seems to apply to religion as well as politics worldwide.

    Those meddling Republicans!

    They are only making us act against the president because they do not realize that Obama's trying his best to restore the economy and keep jobless rates in check.
