Clinton got Monica....Bush got Iraq....Obama gave us nothing but pocket change.




Anyways, it isn't just the President's calling either. The Congress also has the call to do whatever to the country. So let's not all bash the Presidents.

We can put the best President ever in the White House and leave the same ole Congress folk in their seats and still have nothing going on. Until we remove most of the Congress people or whoever...and then have a GOOD President WITH GOOD Congress/Senate and the whole nine yards....then everything is going to stay how it is now.


Also, the population is jacking up too and there is more people than ever before.

Well this past election the Republicans regained control of Congress, and action finally came to be when the Fed. Gov. was facing a shutdown. Come next election, we vote for president and the u.s. senate. Watch and see if the republicans don't regain that house along with the presidential office.

Maybe.


I'm sorry to say I don't vote. Just because if I vote and it probably will never even count because you can't always trust the people who count the scores especially in this day and time.


I just can't get over one thing too.

The Democrats used to be for the South and the Republicans for the North...but now they switched places....like WTF?

Can't these two parties make their mind up?

Ones an Ass and the other one is a Dumbo.



Oh well, I just do my job, pay my taxes (damn they are taking out alot)....repeat the cycle. Nothing new.

I use to think that way until I've seen a few relatives of mine make a mistake and lost their voting rights. Now I vote cause I can. trust me on this next election pal, trust me. There are way too many networks and the general population have turned on Obama and the idiots known as the democrats have just about turned on him too. It's like when Reagan came into office back during the election of 1980. The exact same thing happened to Jimmy Carter and he lost both the popular and electorial votes. George W. Bush lost the popular vote but won the electorial vote. Get my drift yet? The democratic senators are sweating the next election too, because they seen some major changes in congress in the last election. For an example we had a congressman in office for 30 years and he always seemed to win every election except this last one. He lost by several districts.

I don't care if I lost voting rights truthfully. I may regret saying this later or not.

I guess I'm more of....staying in my business and in the woods type than care about how these people are in Washington because before you know it.....we will have a war on our doorstep due to people getting tired of how things are going.......or some other Country is tired of being bullied around.

I look for that to happen really. I just keep to myself a bit. In 2008 I called it before voting began, and said Obama would win, but I voted for McCain & Palin anyway cause I liked for what they stood for and believed in at that time. But I always knew that people were fed up with the way things were going at that time. It'll be the same thing over and over again. We'll never get another FDR or Reagan again. There are too many orginazations that really run the country, and the U.S. Dollar declining in value doesn't help us one bit either. That right there will be the down fall of the u.s. economy. Unless they decide to back the U.S. Dollar with something it will get uglier.

I can't even really believe in a Political person today either.


They can say one thing one minute and mean another the next.

OR


Saying their going to do great CHANGE but then make things worser.




This country was messed up before the Civil War really even started.

Yeah pretty much. It got worse with Woodrow Wilson. He's the one that created the federal reserve bank and took the people's money. The U.S. Dollar is an I.O.U note to me. Each year it takes more and more dollars to get what we need because of declining value.

What I dread, is what currency we'll go to if the U.S. Dollar Fails. Probably the Euro cause it gets stronger each day because it's backed by precious metals, like Platinum. That's called hedging against the U.S. Dollar. In 1971, 84 ounces of gold would barely buy you a Mustang with virtually no options. That same 84 ounces of gold today would buy you a fully loaded Shelby Mustang GT500 Super Snake and still have enough money left over to buy gasoline for it over the next 5 years. That's how much gold has become worth. It starts at $1,800 bucks an ounce. Platinum starts at roughly about $2,400 bucks an ounce. If you do the math it will make since to you.

Metal won't mean nothing in the end.

Currency won't mean nothing in the end.


Only survival of you and your family will.

Trust me, if this country really breaks down....

Money of any origin would be used as asswipes or for fire..

Yeah I know. I grew up as a hunter and fisherman, and I helped my grandfather on his farm. I never really cared about money and truth be told I still don't.

Yep and people are obsessed with it. I'm not. I'd be happy with about $1,000 bucks a month which is about all I would need.
