    Blind Faith? History has demonstrated the US Republic as one of the most successful governments concieved by man (And in my humble opinion inspired of God). The principles our Founders espoused were rooted in a history of failures in government. They studied these governments. They found out what worked, why it worked, and what didn't work and failed miserably. They adopted these principles into a Constitution. Which is why our nation is currently the oldest standing Republic.

    If we are going to fix the problems of our nation, we need to restore the Republic. We need to restore the Senate to the States. We need to end the corruption of big government and convince the people to step up and take care of themselves. We have to start living up to our personal responsibilities and cease to be covetous.

    If we do that, we will see greatness again.

    I find it very sad that I can place a well thought out artical that is nothing but honest and worth talking about and the only response I get is from one guy who doesnt even address the artical, instead makes a quick smart ass comment about the title.

    Or I can start a thread with little to no thought behind it but make it left leaning at all and bam! 7 pages of insults and flat out stupid responses.

    I think it shows the average IQ's of most of the 'regular posters' here.

    And for the record, 200 years is nothing. China culture is over 5,000 years old. To suggest that we are the most successfull country in the world is a bit of an overstatement. Just because we hit a couple of technology leaps doesnt guarentee our position in the future.

    One of those technological leaps was the invention of SPELL CHECK. You should consider it when you write these condescending posts of yours. You might seem less pretentious.

    Conservative with regards to your signature and reapealing of obamacare. What plan do you support to replace obamacare with, or do you just want to take things back to the problems that we had before an attempt at fixing healthcare.

    Most people are all hot about repealling Obamacare, but zilch so far as a reasonable alternative.

    The alternative is get government out of the way and let insurance act like insurance.

    Instead we mandate insurance pay for personal responsibility.

    Most people are "hot" about fixing healthcare because they wanted reforms to the system that would bring down costs. Instead they got Obamacare which will increase the cost of healthcare while lowering the quality of the care we receive.
