    I feel beaten down. Never in my life time have I seen the kind of things going on in Washington in terms of the politicians being bought and sold, politicians not paying any attention to the wants and desires of their voters back home, and such outright lies and half-truths. I've never seen the kind of spending that is taking place now - spending that the American people will never be able to repay. I think we are out of control and I'm just sitting back waitning for the crash to happen. I surrender. As a voter, I am beaten down and weary. I see no logic in anything coming out of DC. We are doomed. While our country goes down the tubes, the liberals dance in the street and blind to what is going on or just simply don't care. I'm waving the white flag. I quit.:eusa_eh:

    I hear ya Black Dog, it's disheartening as hell.
    Personally, I too think there is a serious "crash" ahead, and I would just as soon see the whole thing come crashing down, so we can get to the business of rebuilding this country.

    It's going to take a lot of glue and nails to put this mess back together.:(

    Take heart, BBD. This can be repealed by the next congress, or the one after that. If that doesn't happen, then, yeah, we're pretty much screwed.

    I've felt this way for quite some time. You mention the liberals (not all of them are) dancing in the street, blind to what is going on and they are, but truthfully two years ago it was Republicans (note, I'm not including all conservatives in that) who were blind and dancing.

    I too believe that a crash is on the way, but I'm not willing to lay all the blame at the feet of the liberals who just happen to be in control today, nor am I certain this crash will necessarily happen on their watch.

    Regardless of when we fall, it will be the fault of both parties, not just one or the other.

    Stop paying attention as much. It's not any more or less significant than the past you are just noticing it more. Every good thing that happens in the world happens in spite of politics not because of it.

    I hear you, but if we quit then we will be beaten down. None of us can afford to waive a white flag. We need to work harder - vote the bastards out.
