Can't we just all get along? Really, I am so sick of hearing nothing but arguing with all of these stupid labels we stick to people: Democrats, Republicans, progressives, conservatives, libertarians, liberals...Don't you people realize that this is why our country is quite literally going to **** right now? Every time a new president comes into office the people have a renewed hope that things are actually going to get done, but instead it's the same old stagnant lame politics as every 4 years. Why do we waste out time bickering and name calling when the country as we know it is on the verge of collapse? In fact, I almost hope our economy does completely collapse and that everything falls apart because we truly need to learn a lesson.

Why can people just swallow their damn pride and unite to make some real beneficial changes? No one addresses any real issues anymore. Here we sit arguing about political parties, gay marriage, and abortion, while our sinking ship of an economy continues to go under the water. Are people that ignorant to realize that we are on the verge of an all-out collapse? When we combine all of the very serious problems that we are facing right now, we are in completely uncharted waters. We have never been in as bad of a position as we are in, and we can either unite and do something about it or keep arguing until it's too late. Remember the band that kept playing on the Titanic until it was completely sunk? Well America is the sinking titanic and instead of a band playing it's people arguing over pointless issue and problems of the ego. They will keep up their bickering until their heads are under the water.

Democrats are closet commies and worship Satan.
Only christian conservatives should be allowed to govern, god wants it that way.

The cog in that wheel would be very differing views on what is "beneficial changes".


The country had been in the rotting stages with liberal's ideas of "beneficial changes'

The drama! The Best thing for this country is when the knuckle heads in Washington are bickering, instead of ramming unwanted bills down the peoples throat. The worst thing is when 1 party has control, and it doesn't matter which party.

Isn't that the other way around?

We have been working together, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Virginia all saw a bi-partisan effort of democrats and republicans coming together to elect republicans.

I'm making light of it, but the American people are waking up to the destructive actions of big government and partisan politics, the move towards electing republicans who espouse smaller government and a return to sanity, is all because of the klieg lights 0bama has used to illuminate extreme partisanship, government control and the drift away from our Constitutional republic. The people want opposition to the 0bama agenda, when you do not want government to own car companies and control health care, there is no compromise, you simply need to oppose them.

By their nature they are more concerned about reelection then they are our country. It is time for term limits.

Politics is unfortunately a sport for most involved. All they care about is winning elections, raising money from corporations, and keeping power.

Since all that's etched in stone as irrefutable fact, I guess you can just cut and paste that statement, post it on every thread marginally related to run your campaign on City Data. Or perhaps city data will come to realize it's inappropriate to politically prosthelytize vs the debate forum they've established.
