I say that we should get rid of the current representatives, since they are obviously incompetent.

Many Congressman also accept bribes from big business to pass bills that aid the companies but make the American public pay more to buy their products. It's awful what US government has descended into.

Many Congressman also accept bribes from big business to pass bills that aid the companies but make the American public pay more to buy their products. It's awful what US government has descended into.Its not the U.S. government, its the People of the United States. Don't forget that its the people who elect those who hold power. If we don't like them or how they operate, then we don't, or shouldn't, vote for them. But time and time again we as a country do. That's the reason the country is in such a debacle now. There are a lot of congressmen who don't do their job of supporting the majority of the state and just do what they want. Its the fault of the people for reelecting them again. How's that saying go: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Then there are the congressmen who represent the majority of the people in their state but it turns out that the majority of the people are stupid and uneducated. Because of this dumb people with dumb ideas flood into congress. There are always a few of these people in congress, its how it works, but the number there are now is staggering. That's one of the major things that's crippling government. The mass majority of the issues in this country come out of piss poor education. Every student in the country needs to take Calculus as a senior in High School but never are they required, or even offered, a class on how to balance a check book or a budget. There's a hell of a lot more then just that but you always serve the appetizer before the main course.
I think we are in need of more than two parties. It's rather undemocratic if a party is able to nominate anyone it wishes and they have a 50% chance of winning.Besides, things are always so poor when they have little to no competition.Yes, I know there ARE more than two parties. But these other parties are so insignificant they can be written off as nonexistent.
The reason that third parties are insignificant is because they are unpopular. The reason for this is that the third parties in America do not line up with many Americans view points. The reason the Republican and Democrats became our two major political parties was because they represent, in theory at least, Liberals and Conservatives. These are two ways of thinking that are always around. Third parties are more specific in their beliefs and so they attract less people.
OK...I'll tell you.1. He said he was going to lower taxes and take troops home. THEN he sends them in and royally jacks up our taxes!2. HE. IS. F*CKING. UP. HEALTHCARE.3. He's completely oblivious to the bribes major companies pay Congressmen (and women) to pass laws to benefit the countries, but damage us!And 4. He is just plunging our country into more chaos than it was with the former President Bush.
Insurance companies barred from dropping people from coverage when they get sick, ending the practice of rescission. Lifetime coverage limits eliminated and annual limits restricted. Young adults able to stay on their parents' health plans until age 26. Many health plans currently drop dependents from coverage when they turn 19 or finish college.
1) First, he actually did cut taxes.
Second, Obama is bring troops home. He's pulling out all combat troops. The expectation is that all U.S. combat troops will be out of Iraq by the end of 2011. 2. Now granted, he did put more troops into Afghanistan. It was a troop surge. The strategy was successful in Iraq and the President wants to 'win' the war, not just bail out and leave everything an absolute disaster. (A solid definition of what wining is may not be established
2) Please, some examples on how he's fucking up healthcare. Because the system as it is now it very fucked up and I would love to know what you think he's doing to make it worse.
3) Bribes are illegal.
