Why do citizens put so much faith in the Fed Govt. when they screw up almost everything they try to fix?

Do they think that one guy screaming "change" & hope can fix a 30 million person Fed Govt. bureaucracy that never works right & so often makes things even worse? Barrack could serve 7 terms as President any still not be able to change the very worst of US Govt. & if you can't change that it doesn't really matter who is President.

    Correct !!!!!

    John F. Kennedy, a DEMOCRAT, was sworn in as the 35th President of THE United States of America, at noon on January 20, 1961. In his inaugural address he spoke of the NEED for ALL Americans to be ACTIVE CITIZENS, famously saying, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

    Please NOTICE that it said DEMOCRAT - NOT Socialist and / or Communist Democrat !!

    It means this country is only as strong as the people in it. It means get off your a$$ and do something!!!

    04/13/08 -

    President Bush Job Approval

    RCP Average

    Approve 31.0%

    Disapprove 65.5%

    Spread -34.5%

    Congressional Job Approval (DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED) **********

    RCP Average

    Approve 22.0%

    DISAPPROVE 70.0% **********

    Spread -48.0%


    Democrats have to recognize that since the 73rd Congress in 1933, for a MAJORITY of THE LAST 65 YEARS, Democratic Houses of Representatives and Democratic Senates have CONTROLLED the nation and the President.

    A TOTAL of 38 Sessions with Democrats in CONTROL for 28 of those!

    WE need to inform/TELL our political representatives that WE NEED TO PASS a Constitutional Amendment for the LINE ITEM VETO.

    This will keep the SPECIAL INTEREST GARBAGE from being attached to valuable legislation.

    If Congress wants to give the president that power, they will have to pass a constitutional amendment, Supreme Justice John Paul Stevens said. "If there is to be a new procedure in which the president will play a different role in determining the text of what may become a law, such change must come not by legislation but through the amendment procedures set forth in Article V of the Constitution," Stevens said, on June 25th, 1998.

    IF your special interest is SO valuable, why do you have to HIDE it in valuable legislation?

    So, with them REFUSING to PASS the Line Item Veto, in reality, the House and Senate have REALLY been controlling the country!!

    AND, with the CURRENT Senate and Congress having the WORST approval rating in HISTORY, hopefully we will see a LOT of changes after the general elections.

    A recent Reuters poll is out and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have pulled an upset: They have managed to make George Walker Bush twice as popular as CONGRESS.

    RECENTLY - - JUST 13% of Likely Voters now say the DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED Congress is doing a good or excellent job. A recent Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 43% give Congress a poor rating.

    Those results represent a slight decrease from the previous month, when 15% gave Congress a good or excellent rating.

    Democrats generally believe in heavy fines for honest work, while rewarding sloth and indulgence.

    Do YOU think that people should be able to do absolutely nothing productive and get government hand-outs for sloth and indulgence - healthcare, tobacco, alcohol, drugs, STDs, etc. ??

    Do YOU want to have YOUR MONEY TAKEN from YOU and YOUR FAMILY to FINANCE these people ???

    as much as I hate the seen the country dealing with yet another impeachment of a sitting US President, (specific - Clinton deserved it.) plainly the massive majority of electorate have become psychologically arranged for it by Obama’s strikes. As he alienates greater electorate, they're going to locate it a lot much less annoying to cut back the organic help for any sitting president. Impeachment is a gadget that's no longer used accurately or often sufficient while it comprises the federal bench. while it comprises the place of work of the President, it particularly is a much greater severe project - and the effect is in no way specific. The irony is that Obama is probable a fraud and isn't any longer honestly a valid US President. Now it extremely is a project for the SCOTUS unlike each earlier. it may be obtainable that a Republican majority interior the residing house could petition the SCOTUS to take heed to a house-subsidized plea for the removing of Obama from place of work for fraud . . . and honestly, treason! on a similar time as this could be an incredible blow to kin peace and quietness, it may be necessary for the survival of the U. S. shape. we live in a damaging time for the Republic - and that's as a results of fact the electorate have been too lax in preserving the elected politicians responsible. it's time to pay up.

    You make a good point. Any real candidate for change would be someone who tells people to take some responsibility for their own lives, instead of constantly claiming to be the victim and asking the government to do everything for them.

    The government can't do much of anything properly.

    The government makes the problems to begin with and then makes it worse by trying to "fix" it.

    Government is the problem and not the solution.

    Individualism and freedom is the solution to our problems in most all instances.

    God Bless America

    it isn't a matter of faith in any government, but rather having to vote by the archaic methods currently available.
