What is the problem with the liberal democrats that they are not willing to sit down and work out a compromises with the Republicans. Compromise is what the two party system brings to government. Past administrations have worked with the opposite party, giving some taking some, but in the end working out a compromise that usually worked.
Today, it is a different story with the liberal democrats. They act like little children, actually more like spoiled brats. It is time for a change of attitude through the ranks of the liberal democrats. An attitude that is able to work for the people that elected them. A time will come when the people will finally get fed up with the actions and attitudes of the current crop of liberals and throw all of them out of office.
The liberal democrats, who have usurped the party, need to realize Americans are a free thinking group and do not fall into lockstep with the party leaders. That is the biggest problem and the one problem that will bring about the liberals downfall - wanting everyone to do as they do. You cannot treat the people like a herd of milk cows where all follow the leader!
A first step would be setting term limits for Congress. As it stands now, many (I think most) of them become ingrained in the system and continue in office when it is way past their time. Not only that, how is it so many politicians enter with a meager net worth and they or their family end up millionaires?
People wake up to what is happening to your country. Education is dumbing down the younger generation (except for those fortunate few - need I say who they are) and thereby creating a non-thinking populace. You know what that is - a herd of milk cows!
It seems for years those who consider politics their calling have come from a rather dismal group of citizens. None has any outstanding achievements or characteristics. Another area that is often overlooked is the attempts by many of the power brokers to get the U S involved in a global government instead of maintaining a certain amount of autonomy. These elites want world rule their way, not the democratic way.
As the most powerful nation in the world today, the U S should not become engulfed in global politics to the extent we become the policemen of the world, especially when you consider the U S may be doing it for others to profit. What we should do if we must police the various hot spots is make them territories of the U S and subject them to our form of government for the benefit of the U S.
When another country wants the money the U S is able to provide, but wants it without any attachments - well, they can go scratch for the money. Something has to be paid for the use of the money. Since many of the countries that have borrowed from the U S have never bothered to repay the loans we need to change our policy. You want our money, you do our bidding. You provide whatever it is the U S needs from your country and provide it as we see fit, otherwise don't ask.
Let 'em eat cake.
