I'm not voting because I'm European and I know nothing about America and if I voice an opinion I'll be accused of bashing America.

This could be a good thread... ya'll have a thoughtful discussion.




I'll just lay back and watch tonight as I'm reviewing various news articles about Dennis Kucinich's DEMAND for a recount in New Hampshire primary as he feels there was voter irregularity.

I also think that the social security problem needs to be addressed....and its amazing to me how it has suddenly taken a back seat within the campaign issues...

It needs to be noted that there are only a number of 15- 20 yrs when the baby boomers babies are all reaching retirement age....not very much time to find a solution or put it into use,,,trial and error time allotment allowed it is going to take longer than we have to fix this problem and then what? JMHO

I don't claim to be au fait with the intricacies of US domestic issues but with what little I do know.....

1. Finally put effective measures in place to assist all those poor people who were caught up in the hurricanes. Still not sorted, is it?

2. Look at structuring some kind of affordable healthcare scheme.

3. Illegal immigration seems to be an issue, so look at ways to tackle that.

4. Look more closely at combatting green/environmental issues.

On a more global scale, work harder and quicker to establish some kind of infrastructure to an Iraqui democracy and governing policies, so that all the troops can finally come home.

Just a few thoughts off the top of my head.... for what little it's worth?? dunno

The reasons for all these problems in my opinion is this



Our noses are too busy outside of this country and not in it...If this so-called mickey mouse run government of ours would put as much effort into this country as it does in its on agenda we would have had these things fixed by now....


all i see here, are mean-spirited..rude..crude selfish zombies...who will do whatever they are told to think whatever they are told and not have enough coochies to stand up and speak their mind for fear of being persecuted for it...

personally, this is not going to gert better beforer it gets worse as long as noone is willing to steer the boat it will remain of course and eventually crash and burn.....jodi

Definitely health care,
and what can we do about streaming some of the goodies into our country,that we have been sending into foriegn coffers.

I have always believed in the law of resiprocity,but maybe it is time to pull back a little, and think of our own, or at least start sending that money to places that really could benefit like Darfur,Zimbabwae, Madagascar, there are plenty of places that could use the step up, put into countries that are caught in a day to day struggle to live sigh

"energy independence " confused

That one can be tough! Here in Canada...Quebec, more specifically, a couple of inventors came up with the perfect electric car, problem is, they aren't up to the standards for this country, and everytime they conform to the given standards, the government changes them. They sell like hot-cakes in the states, and around the world. If the government doesn't change their ways, these men are going to fold up shop and move out of Canada. frustrated

So, good luck!

as far as I'm concerned every party not matter which one...is out to line their own pockets thtas is proven history ....




perhaps we should change the constitution to read as one for the government and one for the people ...thats is how it is in reality....

as is the problem...take care of your own then its easier to take care of others......

If you cant take care of yourself how can you help others?


this is where alot of problems could be solved putting us in a better position to help others...it doesnt say much for a leader when his own country is a mess... how do we portray how others should live up to an ideal when we dont live up to our own ideals

leadership ...where???

and thats the problem ..it is business....shouldnt it be about the people.... not about business?



when the people are taken care of....the business will improve....increasing the economy ....


where do we get the money from to do this???




stop putting it outside the country and put it in....as i have said before in my opinion this would be a win-win situation....

As far as the war in Irac, and Afganistan, I still believe that the main reason was drugs, secondly, another reason I believe was that the Saudis' were planning on kicking the U.S Air Force out of there. And a good place to move it would have been Irac.

there are many alternatives for energy independence...

the reason they are not being utilized is because it would cause the government to lose money ..

think about it...


the governments pockets are lined with so many businesses dollars they would lose money....


pharmecuticals...oil...etc....

Yes, of course it should be about the people. But these decisions are made by politicians and it "being about the people" does not feather one's nest nor further one's political career, does it?

Such position, control and power is only established and maintained by big business........... horrid but true, I'm afraid!!

I told you my thinking was different than most americans...


this is why i say the country is full of zombies who will not speak up and think for themselves as i said



one constitution for the government and one for the people.....


different rules ....which is why this country is a mess we need someone of and for the people as was originally intended upon establishing residency in this country...


Europe may not be perfect but I still think


"the british are comin the british are comin"

I would never claim that we have all the answers....far from it!! Policitians are politicians the world over, love.

Their claims of "transparency" is anything but and we are all subject to propaganda....... it just takes many forms!!
