    Overall. Who's policies have led us down this path over the last 50 years?

    "Liberal" and "Conservative" as adjectives are almost completely meaningless.

    My answer is neither. Our country is not ruined, our government is dysfunctional because of special interests, campaign fundraising, blind voting and a lack of qualified candidates willing to fill the positions.

    There is plenty of policy difference between them to make even the dumbest among us realise they are far different.

    Not to say they don't both screw us but one is constantly promoting free rides while the other doesn't.

    You're missing my point. The terms "liberal" and "conservative" are subjective terms. They mean different things to different people.

    Inside the beltway professional politicians from both sides of the aisle who couldn't give a rats ass about the rest of the country but only care about the "dinner circuit" and power. I really believe that the "lifers" that are in power have caused the downfall of the U.S.

    America should be screaming for term limits.
