    Where we are as a country right now I just feel we should expect more from our politicians, from both sides. We are in serious trouble with our economy and I'd like to get a resolution to that. I'd hate to see them waste their time basically just throwing mud at each other. Well more mud than usual.

    I'm basically comfortable with the regulations that are currently in place to keep large corporations in check. However like most times I have very little confidence in the politicians to actually enforce those regulations.

    I am with you, I think these jokers are all selling us down the river... The problem is, it is precisely the corporate entanglements I am talking about that are helping to keep us on this trajectory. To them, be damned if its not sustainable longterm, its all about the profit line in the here and now. Why do we have an obscene defense budget? Partly because companies like Haliburton get their grubby tentacles into the Pentagon and insert their products into their lineup and drive the war agenda.

    To get anything that remotely resembles a fiscally responsible government, we need to make cuts to defense and entitlement programs, and come to a solution with the tax situation where someone (or all of us) will need to pay a higher share. Unfortunately, this will never occur in the present situation because there are too many people with skin in the game involved in policy decisions to ever allow their cash cows to be put to pasture.

    I can't go along totally with you on the military spending issue. I don't think the budget for our military is ever too large. I see it as a reality because the world we live in. But I get why you feel the way you do about it. Many ppl take advantage of that situation to accumulate personal wealth.

    But I'm with you when it comes to your over all point. To get to real a balanced budget both sides are going to have to give a little. I just feel because the world we live in it's in our best interest to try and keep the military cuts to one of the last places we look to cut our budget.
