    This country right now in my opinion has been slowly dying for decade after decade and do you know why? It's not because of the politicians that to me is a cop out. I mean who votes for them who supports them we do.

    And, we keep doing it because it's for the lesser of two evils and we have to compromise our principals more and more so we can get my guy in the senate seat, Governors mansion, or White House as long as my guy is in there who cares about what the other team wants that team is going to ruin this country my guy would never do anything to hurt me,the bill of rights, or the US Constitution.

    Is this best way to pick a leader is this a best way to heal a dying country? But maybe I'm wrong every things fine I'm just talking out my ass, need to get a life, shut my mouth, and vote for the team that's 10-15% less evil then the other team whosoever that team is come election day

    The nation is dying because individuals and families are dying. We've become corrupted and in result our nation is corrupted.

    The problem is we are waiting for leaders in government instead of becoming leaders ourselves.

    Grab a shovel. It died 11 years ago and it's smelling pretty bad.

    The US looks pretty healthy to me. It's not perfect, but nothing man-made is. To say it is dying is really pretty far removed from reality.

    Repeat after me... "Hope and change and hope and change and hope and change"... It's ALL better now, isn't it.

    I noticed throughout history that countries usually lose their standing in the world as their military weakens.

    The voters are doing something.
    It's called the Tea Party. They are regular people, who have stepped up to change Washington D.C.
    They are doing it, because of all the vilifying talk about them, blaming them, that they are the ones who are extreme.
    You know you are doing something right when that happens.
    You can't have a new Revolution and not expect to be vilified by those in power, who will not go going willingly and is putting up a vicious fight,with lies and accusations.
