9 out of ten. I think it was 5 I got wrong.
No matter where you are in this debate it's a sh!t bill. From a long line of many another sh!tty bills over the years. Especially over the last decade and more. Washington doesn't have the answers. All they produce is sh!t. And they're swooping down. Dragging us all to the sh!t nest.
10 out of 10.
I don't know why you think our political system is fine. We have two parties who will say anything to not agree with the other side. People like Debbie wasserman and Eric cantor who are evil people looking to divide everyone. They are all the same but act as if they are different. We need to clean house.
This. Politicians only get away with what we allow them to get away with. Voters are hideously underinformed. We have more tools then ever to get the answers but people simply dont care to use them. There are multiple smart phones in virtually every household that can access the internet yet people have no earthly idea on most of what goes on in this country.
In the end there's no principle. Everyone knows it's a crap bill. It reminds me of "conservatives" defending things like bailouts, deficits, more government expansions and interventions. As long as it's their guy doing it, it's OK. The GOP and Romney were the one's that created this monster. All Obama and the dems did was took their playbook and ran with it.
Maybe i didn't explain myself correctly, many say it is the people, or that they are not informed.
I think that is a problem, but it is unrelated, the problem is the partisanship.
There are many people here on this forum that have a good idea of what is going on, but are still partisan as hell, our politicians count on that, and partisan voting leads to elected officials without any reason to perform.
Do not leave the politicians themselves out of this though, they know what is going on, and the possible consequences of their actions, or inaction, and they do it anyways.
No president, for at least the past several decades has done a good enough job in their first term to deserve a second term, yet many in this thread will vote for Obama for the soul purpose of hating the thought of the other party being in power, and gosh they are so different!
The prevalence of bad politicians and bad policy will continue as long as the country is as powerful and rich as it is. When peoples' lives are as great as they are, and nothing changes from one party to the next, why pay attention and vote?
Every crook is a crook until he gets caught and gets punished.
And we let politicians divide us into extremes. Its either left or right and no gray area and no compromise for the better of the country.
