    It is amazing but if you listen to Mitt Romney speak, you can see the arrogance of the "upper class". They ensure that the laws are written in such a way that a unemployed father that shoplifts a bread to feed his kids serves years in jail whilst they can steal billions from investors and workers pension funds and not even be arrested.

    I strongly feel that the parties trying to become President have said and done more to destroy America alone. They have not done "One Dame Thing For America's People", nor are they interested in America getting back to WORK. They are Anti-American, Talban clones.

    Mitt Romney is a "venture capitalist", and while I'm not sure who is doing the MOST damage, I think all three options are liable, but one option is being left out. Apathetic, uniformed, and indifferent American voters. Massive voter fraud could put B O back in the White House, unless Americans turn out in record numbers, and I mean real record numbers. (No dead people should be allowed to vote, and neither should illegals, or other non-English-speaking people who live here.)

    I am a real minority on this one. In my opinion the biggest damage is being initiated by covert instructive eco-terrorist supported by various countries like China, Russia, and most islomic nations. The rest of the damage is done by stupid insipid government leaders, media, business leaders and public that refuse to put in place stop gaps and ways to end inappropriate investment practices. This includes closing down many investment complanies and computerized trading.

    The bigger government gets the more taxes it takes to pay the inflated salaries and pensions (sometimes lifetime pensions for serving just one term, and in some cases, less), and for what? they don't produce ANYTHING, just a bunch of glorified paper shufflers holding more hoops for the working man to have to jump through.

    Big government is too big for the American voter to understand its actions and to control it. Big government lusts for power, but the politicians require special interest support to continue buying votes and fooling the People, so they feed special privileges to special interests such as crony mercantilists, labor unions, environmental groups, green energy flim-flam artists, trial lawyers, teachers and government employees, and other groups in exchange for support. Big government is always special interest government and never consistent with the General Welfare, which is provided by limited government dedicated to protecting the equal, sovereign rights of the individual to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. We exercise these rights in a healthy, vigorous private sector, which big government is always set on destroying with its stupid central planning controls and its high thief of earnings and property from producers.

    The government needs to butt out and let free enterprise do business. That's how the bad business is weeded out from the good business and makes for a competitive market creating a better economy thus possibly more jobs.

    We can thank Obamass, the far-left George Soros types and Obamass's money-men. The plan is bring America to its financial knees and grasp power by placing Americans, no matter what color into economic slavery. More entitlements will mean more need to keep those who give them in power. The underlying Obamass agenda is to change America into a socialist if not Communist regime for which the far-left will sponsor rewards for laziness, free and/or nanny-state goodies for votes, and permanent control, short of another revolution. It's been the Obamass plan from the beginning.

    Honestly I don't think it's any one of them but all of them. Along with the mentality that has generally evolved in the people as a whole. Ideas and attitudes like "it's me or them", "enough is never enough" the general lack of personal responsibility for ones own actions and lack of respect for one another or even one's own self has been ingrained into generations of the general public. Gradually and step by step we have created our own mess.
    The theory of relativity says, "For every action there is an equal and opposite reation". If this is true then isn't it also true that for most every positive result there is like also a negative result. Seems to me that somewhere along the way we just started rationalizing the negative consequenses in one area to wallow in the gain in others. We've spent to long building both mental and physical walls to block the unpleasant results of our "successes" from our view, and now the garbage is spilling over. We are not going to change our country by just changing a few faces in Washington D.C. or our state capitals. We will have to make some deep and real changes all over and all at once. I have my doubts as to whether it can happen.
    I was born a citizen of the United States. I sometimes wonder what country I'll be a citizen of when I die.

    It's easy to take the government back. Vote. Do it in your own special interest, not someone elses. Don't vote on someone elses say-so. Figure out what you, personally, need to live better, then vote for the person that comes closest to making it possible for you to achieve your goals.

    That's how you become the "Invisible Hand" that helps guide the world.

    If you don't vote, the vulture capitalists money will have all the say-so, not you.

    You want "We The People" back in the government then become a part of it. At the very least VOTE.

    Certainly "corporatism", with it's 25,000 lobbyists in Washington, is the cancer within our system that is sucking the lifeblood from the body of the Nation. Corporations control Congress, Congress expands the Government to benefit or control corporations, Labor Unions are a response to corporate pillage and power, and the price of all that you eat, wear, do, buy, and desire slowly increases in order to fulfill the demands of Wall Street
    that corporate profits constantly increase, month after month, year after year, decade after decade.

    Notice that today INTEL was tossed under the bus by Wall Street as a corporation that no longer can promise it's Wall Street managers that profits can be increased and markets expanded. This great company has outlived it's usefulness to the billionaires who have traded in it's stocks for decades and made tens of billions in commissions, fees, and gains trading on the inside information. Now, those of you who own the stock are under the bus and will watch your retirement funds go down. This is the game, children, a vicious game played by experts who can outhink you every moment of the day.

    In the 1970's no one in the world would have believed that in less than 20 years the Soviet Union would be a thing of the past. No one should believe the United States is "Too Big To Fail". 20 years from now our school kids just might be learning all about what caused the collapse of the United States of America too.

    The only thing about that is that the USSR did'nt get invaded or attacked. It collapsed from within basicly. The biggest reasons being (as best I remember) corruption, social dysfunction and the governments inability to connect with and respond appropriately to the general public of that national union. While the US is a nation it is also a union of states. Just as the Soviet system was. Should things go similarly here as it did then, there, the patriots you mention may find that there just isn't any solid enemy to fight against.
