The more Government the more tax. The more departments created to oversee or regulate an area of our lives the more overhead and the more waste. We need to reduce the size of the Federal Gevernment and its control of every aspect of our lives.Now we have "career politicians" not "statesmen" as when this country was founded. If the voters would not blindly re-elect just because a name sounds familiar and actually learn how that person has performed in public office there would be more attention paid to the intersts of the people not the special interest lobbys. We need to stop policing the world and take care of the problems here at home. We rebuilt Europe and Japan after WW2 and the people ridicule and hate Americans. If we don't wake up soon we are going to find ourselves annexed by Japan, they are buying more and more of our country and control a large part of the economy . Our Federal and local governments have been waging an expensive war on drugs for years , can anyone actually think there efforts have reduced the amount od illegal drugs? The same mistake was mad in the past with liquor and the solution that worked was to make it legal again to remove the profit from illegal manufacture and distribution.
Well said! We live in a country with millions of people and every four years we have to figure out which presidential candidate (out of a grand total of 2) will f*** up more. We need to hold our politicians responsible and get rid of the two major political parties. They take care of their own and no one else.

For the record I don't think Repubicans are any better or any worse. They make different promises, but neither follows through.
