    My old country sucks. The people continually vote against their own best interests.

    My country, with all of its many flaws, is still the greatest experiment in Freedom that has ever been attempted in Human history. There is nothing to hate and it doesn't suck.

    corporate greed is usually at the center of the problem. both democrats, and republicans serve the corporations, banks, military, pharmaceutical, prison industrial complex, etc. the same can be said about the regimes that occupy canada, most of europe, australia, nz, the usual u.s pupet regimes japan, bahrain, south korea, qatar, saudi arabia, uae, etc

    Nice.

    Get money out of politics & create strict term limits and we could damn well get back on track.

    So you think putting more restrictions on our rights and liberty will put up back on track to have more freedom?

    I love my country. It does not suck. Goes through some rough patches from time to time...but does not suck. I think the biggest problem with our country is that mo Jed influences are running the show and the folks we elect can't do their jobs effectively because of it.

    If the want to serve as an elected official, they have to take their money.....if they take their money, then they are beholden to them. It's only gotten worse since Citizen's United.

    'A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with a result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship.'
