    And it's your fault  !    You want a government that supports your labor unions first  , That provides  subsidies to corporate farms that reside on wall street , you care more about grants to your school systems ,  city halls and highway departments ,  teachers unions  and  free day care .  The credit card of our deficit  is being paid not only  late, but by minimum payments .   You want  American Idol like  vetting of your political  candidates .  You wanted  a retirement portfolio thats big and care not that other peoples gas prices are paying for it !  You have turned America in a european socialist state  . Except there is no one else to pay your way because America Inc. is no longer the number one economic power .  America is now  a second rate country  and cannot ever retrieve its position on the pole !  China owns your white house and rents it to your president !  Your congress cannot agree to change the downward direction of our economy but gives itself a raise in the night .

      It is very easy to blame someone else for the problem.  It is very hard to find a solution, one where you don't get everything that you want because you have to compromise.

    I just wrote a Hub on this!

    We must stop asking government to take care of us, because sooner or later, they will, and we won't like it one bit!

    Wall St ,Corporations and The too big to jail banks OWN your president and your elected officials. Who do we actually owe the money too? All China is BS. The fed prints it from "Thin Air" then buys our bonds with it.Who buys them after that? Who owns the FED? it's not us. If we were still on the Gold standard they couldn't deficit spend the way they do now. De- regulation also helped this mess happen. Is it the war on terror or the war OF terror? How much is this costing us? War is big business and a faceless enemy means perpetual never ending war,think about it? Foreign aid? Cut that before social security. Just remember there was a banker or broker designing and promising that these pension funds would work,they were then sold to unions and municipalities. The recipients don't design these things,Hang the right person for once. Open the books to the FED and all of the bailout transactions before they tell the whole country ,we have to suffer. I don't want a handout,but stop handing out our money to people that don't deserve it. This country wasn't this Screwed 30 years ago Who causes inflation and de-values the dollar? Money troubles start with the money men.

    Bravo! Lovely rant.
    Can we still call teachers and nurses professionals now they are union members.  Used to be those people belonged to professional organizations that worked hard to give their members the best and most valuable information for nurturing the people they cared for.  Now we are organized laborers who pay big dues and provide money to the democrats who extort rights and money from all.   As a teacher I recent not being a professional anymore.  We didn't used to get paid much, but we were respected.  Now the money is much better, but not even our principals respect us. 
    Parents surely don't respect teachers. If the union doesn't like your politics they don't respect you. Unions are a hissing and byword.

    "It is very easy to blame someone else for the problem."

    But what is someone really is to blame, as is the case here? Or more precisely, our own government, which was supposed to protect our rights and liberties above all else. Instead, they have built an empire, of the political class, by the political class, and for the political class, by taking money from Peter to buy Paul's vote.

    When 'We the People' have to swallow a socialized medicine law that the majority despises, it is no longer a free country. It has become a soft dictatorship, run by the political class.

    Ahorseback is spot on, and the blame can be placed squarely on the shoulders of those who look to government not for freedom, but for what they can steal from fellow Americans.
