    No matter what, no one is going to be happy. Yes, I strongly believe in our constitution. However, I believe even more strongly that it's true meaning and intention has long ago been lost. It is now just used as a gimmick for politicians to twist to their own benefit to attack anyone who doesn't share their beliefs. We are all (well most of us) going thru hard times in 1 way or another, it doesn't matter who is president, we are going to blame them regardless of when the difficult times actually started. And until someone comes along that can pull miracles out of their ass, we will be in turmoil.

    Until we all demand a way of life that has a common goal & can co-exist w/ the masses, we are doomed to continue the tail spin we're in.

    I wonder if the solution for most of The United States' problems lies farther down in the country. We can't just rely on one person to make this change, the United States has to want to make a change as a whole. I know there are a lot of people who are unhappy with how things are (it's quite obvious), but it also seems that the country isn't willing to work together to do it. With horses, the key to a good horse is a good foundation. What is the foundation of the United States? The citizens are the foundation. If there isn't a good foundation, then there isn't a good final product. So maybe our governmental leaders need to stop trying to fix the final product and start focusing more on the foundation? Maybe the government and the country needs to look deeper into the roots of the problem and then try to fix the foundation, instead of trying to just fix the outside. Does any of that make sense? It all made sense in my head, I'm just not sure if it makes sense now that I've typed it out.

    I do not believe we are in a tailspin. We are in a maturing democracy, that must deal with a new place in the world, that is changing up around us. We are no longer isolated. We affect and are effected by other nations. We aren't homogenous, we arent' all powerful, we aren't immune to the problems of the rest of the world. But, we are not in a tailspin.

    I would just have to disagree on what makes our foundation. I think the leadership is the foundation. When our leadership is weak, the people get weak with nothing to believe in. When our leadership is strong, the people have a reason to want to emulate it. Our leadership is extremely weak right now.

    You make a very good point. But our current leaders aren't listening to the very people who elected them.

    I was referring to a poster above me , who said we were in a tailspin. What she/he means by that is up to him/her. I suppose it is meant to indicated a spiraling. Inescapable and increasingly fast decline toward destruction.

    Well, I absolutely do not want a president that believes the entire legislative branch is a "stumbling block" to their ability to implement their agenda, and that it is "unfortunate" the founding fathers set this democratic republic up that way.

    And, it would be wonderful if they simply pointed out that a private bank, the Fed, really runs this country and they had a plan to change that! We are now where T Jefferson said we would be if ever a private central bank was allowed.

    I really hope there is one person out their that can speak w/o the aid of a teleprompter.

    The US's problems are not just w our fearless leaders in the executive branch or the legislative....its decades of public education. If liberty requires eternal vigilance....then I think we better focus on what happens if the majority doesn't know or care what "liberty" is...b/c they were given the most expensive "free" k-12 education in the world (US), which most would call indoctrination, not an education.

    The upcoming election is depressing. I don't see anyone that I would consider fit for the office in the race.
