81 percent think country is on wrong track

"Those surveyed said individuals, not financial institutions, should get government help." Since when did we expect the goverment to be our savior?? part of our problem is thinking who is in the White House takes a difference in our lives. Not really. Both parties are lazy, corupt and greedy. I'm for less tax, less intervention from Federal and more power in State and Local Goverment.
Whats funny is that if you ask the average person how they feel the economy is going they will say "poorly", but ask them how they are doing and most will say "pretty good."
I'm not saying we need to vote ALL the bums out of office in the federal state and local level, but they sure as heck are NOT listening to US.

in that case I do believe that 81% is enough to get rid of these idiots that are in office doing the wrong things... the government is not supposed to rule the people.. the people are supposed to rule the government.. it seems most americans forgot or never really understood what our forefathers did and why they did it.

I agree that we Americans have lost the idea that the government is supposed to work for us.

I can not remember the last time I even heard anyone say something like that. I remember hearing it more than a few times as a kid. I think part of the reason is we are relying more and more on schools and the media to educate (indoctrinate?) our youth. I don't even know what they are teaching them in H/S government classes these days or even if they still have such a thing. It is up to every American to stand up and say this is BS and I am not going to take this crap anymore. I don't know how better to express it than that. As long as they can get away with taking away our rights they will continue to chip away at them. You know the old saying eternal vigilence is the price of freedom? Well here is an example as long as we continue to allow our elected public servants to get off the hook for things and then take our rights way we are not much better than they are. People get the government they deserve because they allow it to happen. If we are truely sick and tired of it then we need to get serious this election and take back our government. I know, I know it is a trite old saying politicians have even used this line on us and then turned around to stab us in the back. I am just blowing off steam here I guess. It is just annoying to see something that you care about get so badly messed up.

One more thing then I will shut up. The whole illegal immigrant thing why is our goverment not doing anything about that? What are they waiting for? I think they want to have their cake and eat it too. It is way too close to election time to be voicing any hot topics. Who are those in favor of illegal immigration? Perhaps the sons and daughters of illegals perhaps employers who hire them for cheap labor undermining the working class American? More than likely a combination of all of these things. So what are we waiting for DO SOMETHING!

I wish we could fine them or dock their pay for incompetence and wasting our money on BS. That would be the only way I know of to get their attention except for once every 2-4 years.


Thank God I'm alive!
I would say that I'm doing okay, however, between the housing crisis and the increases in the prices of gas and food, I would say that at least in the short term, the direction in which the country is headed is not a good one. I doubt, however, that this will be a long term problem. If the government stays out of the economy, it will eventually itself out of the funk it has fallen into.

As long as the federal reserve has controle of our money supply se will have problems. When congress let the money changers have their way it was the beginning of the end for the good old days.

The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson."
A letter written by FDR to Colonel House, November 21st, l933

The depression was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market....The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank."
Curtis Dall, FDR's son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law

"...all of us here at the policy-making level have had experience with directives...from the White House.... The substance of them is that we shall use our grant-making power so as to alter our life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
H. Rowan Gaither, Jr., President - Ford Foundation (as told to Norman Dodd, Congressional Reese Commission 1

The people will be crushed under the burden of taxes, loan after loan will be floated; after having drained the present, the State will devour the future."
Fredric Bastiat

The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen....At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties."
New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922

Let me control a peoples currency and I care not who makes their laws."
Meyer Nathaniel Rothschild in a speech to a gathering of world bankers February 12, 1912. The following year, the USA subscribed to the 'services' of the newly incorporated Federal Reserve, headed by Mr. Rothschild.
