I think you are largely right but you still ( I do not know if you personally did) voted in the guy who was one of the largest backers (much influence) of the bail out and then continued the bail out into his presidency and still support him.

No, Romney will be no different so stop supporting the big two. They are basically one and the same.

Sorry, but I smell BS.

Because people should live within their means. If you want more work harder or smarter.

Smell what you want. It's the truth. Only poor people are so black and white about politics. The owners use politics to keep the ignorant in a frenzy while they work behind the scenes to make sure their agendas are served.

And that is what many Americans are doing as their buying power and their salaries shrink in comparison to price increases.
