    For those who realize that the system is screwed up. All the politicians are bought in some degree. The courts are loaded against us in most cases. The Fed is private. The banking system is corrupt. Taxes are unfair. What do we do? Fight among ourselves while we all get screwed in the process. There is no help coming from Washington, if you believe that, you can stop reading. You can accept the crumbs and blame others. I want to know what do we do to completely change things for all people in every party who only inspire to have the ability to become middle class?
    This thread is meant for solutions and not party bashing because those who see thing for what they really are know all those in this current government will not bring about change. It is my belief that we abolish the current government and get back to the basics by returning the power back to the voters and restructure the processes for the new global economy and politics we live in. These things must be addressed or no approach to solutions will work.

    I think we should start a letter drive to the FCC, asking them to no longer allow any kind of election commercial to air on television.

    Imagine a world without campaign commercials...they couldn't use dishonesty and deceit to annoy everyone, they wouldn't need to raise all those millions of dollars to get elected.

    This would go a great distance to helping solve our problems.

    Good idea....really.
    And yes, i think most people on both "sides" hate the same things about our Gov't. But most can't even think of having a civil conversation with the other "side"....

    The system isn't screwed up. The people are.

    My sign:

    A fair and simple tax code, a budget that's balanced by law, transparency in all things politics and then build an economy that your kids can drive to the stars.

    :smoke: It ain't rocket science, y'all.

    That's what my sign says. The rest will fall into place if we pursue fair and simple taxes, a budget that's balanced by law and transparency in all things politics.

    Why not go straight for the prize and make it illegal for anyone not in a public employee union to vote?

    The effect is about the same.

    Well.....we could always post anonymous rants on political message boards

    That is usually effective

    The system is screwed up. Our tax code is patently unfair, our budget is out of control with borrowing and spending, and our political system, with the Citizens United ruling, is more corrupt than Mexico, but we do a better job at the paperwork.

    The ONLY two things we have going for us is a highly professional military and The Constitution.
