The two choices we have in the coming election show exactly where this country stands with regards to the issues. The problem is that there are those that would reverse the formula but the formula would remain the same with the gridlocked congress. The only real power of the president is to wage war. "W" proved that.
One of the big reasons democratic governments don't perform as expected is that democracy's prime societal group does not participate. Things would improve rapidly if citizens of democratic societies would a) vote, b) encourage others to do the same, and c) apply pressure to the respective elected officials to do what they were elected to do.
I believe that to be a true statement. When I hear people talk about whos at fault for the condition our democracy is in, I think "I Am", and every other American with the power of the vote. Unfortunately the terrible apathy fueled by the lack luster performance of the news media creates a condition for the general citizen to be fed up with the whole mess, know not the truth and give up.
Many voting eligible Americans are lazy and want the easiest solution to be reached as quickly as possible. They want a silver bullet. The problem is they think the president holds the keys and that he has the power to do it. There are only two things the president is the holder of and that is the power of veto and to wage war.

What do you think about Mitt Romney being the first president in U.S. History to have millions stashed in offshore Tax Havens. You know I saw this tonight and it really bothers me that we keep letting people like this run for the US President. I'll tell you right up front that I don't support the...

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on the other guy. Is it Mitt who has the secret agenda? I surely don't know. Perhaps,...
