Obama did not start the decline of America. Both parties are cowtow to monies that fund them and BIG BIDNESS is the band leader- not pollytickions. Campaign Finance needs to be overhauled.
America does a poorer job than 3rd world countries ( that I have witnessed or heard about: Turkey, PI) in meeting medical needs for ALL Americans.
Now, we are not leaving kids in the street like Greece families are. We are not suffering with a bill of 18 billion due in two weeks and about to default.
America is suffering, but put it in a "worldview". As for working hard: Americans work longer for less benefits than ALL other leading nations (some 21). We don't rest like other countries do- and pay attention to our well being (mental, spiritual, health). Americans work longer and harder.
And, don't get me started on lack of REAL DOLLAR benefits for families with children. Have you paid childcare? America barely subsidizes childcare?!?
I just don't get this uproar. It makes no sense to me, but I appreciate that we think on things differently.
For me- I hate ALL Legislators and I admire Obama, greatly. And, I didn't even talk about education which I think is miserly funded locally, state and national.
