    "Politics is the (Con) Art(istry) of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing them incorrectly and applying all the wrong remedies" - Groucho Marx, NOT the Brit Commie btw.
    Two Party systems tend to polarize into entrench camps whereas Multi-Party ones tend to cluster around the middle, support Moderates, not Extremists.

    Will America continue down the DemoPublican Death Spiral? Or will we wake up and vote for Constitutional Rule?

    I personally believe that the biggest issues still are campaign finance reform and the selling out of our government officials to corporations and special interest groups. Therefore those who are raising the most money are the ones we should not be voting for, they are selling their souls for something and you can bet it's not for the benefit of the common man

    Getting the whole planet on a sustainable energy path away from fossil fuels should be the main priority. If we lose our benign planet we've lost everything.

    We need to stop WARRING each other for long enough first.

    We become what we hate. The very act of hating something draws it to us. Since our hate is usually a direct response to an evil done to us, our hate almost invariably causes us to respond in the terms already laid down by the enemy. Unaware of what is happening, we turn into the very thing we oppose.

    “The more a tragic conflict is prolonged, the more likely it is to culminate in a violent mimesis,” writes Rene Girard; “the resemblance between the combatants grows ever stronger until each presents a mirror image of the other.” With what visage, then, did the United States emerge “victorious” from forcible resistance to Hitler’s evil? We have adopted a permanent war economy and a militarized conception of national security. We see it as our duty to police the “free” world, and we fund a huge army staffed, if necessary, through involuntary conscription. We have created an invisible apparatus of surveillance and espionage that seems incapable of distinguished patriotic protest from sedition, is unaccountable to public authorities, and inaugurates wars without consent of the Congress. We have increasingly come to rely on military intervention instead of diplomacy, force rather than negotiations. We are one of the major purveyors of armaments to nations all over the globe, many of whom purchase weapons at the cost of the welfare of their own people and the destabilization of their own regions.

    Exactly. America spends more on military than the next ten military powers combined. And Romney wants to spend even more. . .?

    Surprised no one else thinks energy is the most important, seeing as we've already passed peak oil (for cheap, easy-access oil). And that by about 150 years or so from now we'll have run out of everything from natural gas to uranium to coal... given that the growth rate of energy consumption remains at the same level that it's at today (hint: it won't).

    Way to plan ahead, guys... What a great world you're leaving my generation.

    Energy could be solved very quickly once the dinosaurs are removed from office. It would mean creating an independent distributed network instead of dependence on the Grid. We know how Tesla, Moray, EV Gray, and others learned how to tap the Zero Point now. It's just a matter of getting the information out there and getting people to build the fairly simple 'generator' required.
  • Nate Hu... Turings... 2012/09/17 15:34:23
    Nate Hubert
    While I support a move away from the Grid, I seriously doubt that anyone has ever tapped Zero Point energy. From my understanding we are still a long, long way from ever figuring that one out.
  • Turings... Nate Hu... 2012/09/17 16:10:59

    You might be surprised. It may not be zero point, I use that term interchangeably with Radiant Energy, Aetheric power, and any number of other names for a system that taps unconventional power sources. It is NOT perpetual motion or 'Free Energy'. There is a tradeoff, but considering that the universe is still expanding, the small amount of energy being siphoned off is infinitesimal.

    There's more Thorium-232 around than Uranium-235 and it can't be turned into Nukes and is a snap to regulate (the reaction) without meltdowns occurring.
    Also, what's wrong with SOLAR?

    And the do nothing Republican/Tea Party congress has stonewalled the citizens of the US long enough. They WANT the economy to fail under President Obama to make their candidate look good.
