Same problem the world faces: statism

Hundreds of millions in body bags in just the last 100 or so years tell us so.

I feel like our country has become too big (and divided) to function well, and all it will take is a little more corruption and a little less economic confidence for us to become like the rest of the countries in the Americas.

Partisanship and intellectual dishonesty are the sort of fires which provide the fuel for their own growth.

Practicing my agorism to the best of my ability At this late stage in my life, sitting back laughing at the droolers happily walking off the cliff into perpetual slavery to the fictional collective.

Listing the other nations the U.S. has "built" would be useful in support of such an assertion.

I wish more people would recognize how tyrannical this Govt has become, its well past due to remove them from power and install new guards for the countries future, this is a process that needs to get started ASAP.

History doesnt celebrate people who obey all the laws and go along to get along, the real patriots who initiate real change, they are hated and despised at the time, they are called terrorists and are persecuted...enough time passes though, history will recognize them as patriots and heroes.

Skewed priorities. Increasing the military budget while cutting Medicare and Medicaid is a good example. Spending billions on waging war in foreign countries while cutting education and neglecting our own infrastructure. The basic needs of American citizens are routinely sacrificed on the alter of the military industrial complex.

Trump gives the media plenty of ammo but their never ending hammering of him is putting many on edge and dividing the country.

The media needs to be unbiased and go back to reporting the facts so we can make up our own minds on a topic.
I call bull on this.

First, the implication is if you don't like Trump it is probably because of the main stream media not because of any rational, intelligent, purposeful research done on the man and his lack of policies.

Second, this is old school thinking when people had access to only one or two papers in town and TV. We now have extensive information available on tv, print, and most importantly, internet.

We have live coverage of speeches and questions and answers from our President.

If you are blaming the media for airing that stuff -- that's a stretch.

I think the blind partisan loyalty voters have is the absolute worst thing for this country.
