United States

I was born and raise a American Citizen. I was also born into a world where people stud up and spoke how they feel. It makes my head shake to see people not understanding whats going on in today's world (today's America). This whole raise the deficient talk is a prime example. The government/Congress would rather threat the elderly rather than tell the truth. You guys (the citizens) gave us your money we saw how much we where making off of you (the citizens) so we took some thinking there would still be enough left and even thought we can pay it back out of our 6-7 figures we rather make ya'll take responsibility for it. This is bull, and if they cut Social Security I want all the money I've invested back in my pockets! Just our luck they will cut social security and still make us pay! If you have bills pay them point blank I have to pay minds.

Those politicians that bend on cutting off your social security and medicare benefit need to be kicked out of congress in the next election, it is your choice to break or to keep their political career in our government, so people of America, don't just complain about those politicians you voted into congress for stealing and railrolling your future benefits of your present contribution, vote them out of congress in the next election for the sake of our own future and the future of our children.

You are asbsolutely right,Maryr817! The big salary and benefit U.S government officials are receiving is beyond the dream of many hard working ordinary AMERICANS except the big corporation executives. It is one fo the reason why U.S is in such a deep debt of 14 trillion dollars now. (14 with twelve zero behind it) I am quite sure you are still too low in your number of posts to be able to post any icon in your discussion and comment. you need to reach around several hundred before the feature will appear in your comment column. Hope i answer your question by now.

I think America is no longer the No. 1 power in the world. Surely not economically. Im afraid that China is becoming the ultimate superpower. I fear this tho. Because China is governed by the commie party. Im not afraid of the communism but of the way human rights, ideas and opinnions are being trampled. BUT the US aint exactly a liberal state. Your taxes finance a shadow government and way too many secret projects. You have little in social and especially medical security. If i were you i would start a campaign to clean the government of corruption, shadow gowernment elements and to disclose secret projects. I would cut a lot from the money that go into beurocracy and pour more into social security. With the debt, you face the same problems Greece faces. Cuts have to be made.

Wow! So true Alechin. Now with the government bankrupt some of those lies and stealing are sneaking out. I also heard where China is cutting the US from them. The world currency is in the works on being change and who knows what else is in there plan. What I fear is NWO happening in front of are eyes, economy clasping and war is on the rise. Taxes that we pay we really never see, how is it that Social Security doesn't have enough money when we having been paying into for years. What happens is they saw it was bringing in tons of extra money that they thought they could spend else where not thinking of the Baby Boomers to come. Someone is stealing but how many are behind bars smh It is really sad :(

The American People will speak in November 2012. If the election were today I can assure you that things would be different come the next week. The American people spoke loud and clear in 2006 when the voted out the Republicans in congress because they were not doing what the people wanted. The voted for what many thought would be change and they screamed in 2010. I think there will be a lot of new faces in congress and the Senate in 2012 and the wishes of the people will be done.

Thanks for your response. I really do hope are vote counts. I notice (we the people) can't see the numbers for ourselves. You would think with all this new technology Voting would be as simple as logging in and casting your vote and not only that but seeing the results with you own eyes. I like Ron Paul as a candidate if he does run. I also will continue to vote but I just hope it counts!

It is good to see young people like yourself thinking for themselves instead of parroting their favorite news channel or party spokesperson. The only difference between the two parties currently holding proper governance hostage is the enemies they create for us to seek their protection from and the parts of your life they wont the government sticking it's over bearing nose in. You're right, it is all fear mongering, they are "creating an enemy" and then claiming to be our protectors from those enemies. ..."those evil republicans want to take your grand mothers money!, Stick with me! I'll save your grandmother!" or... "Those evil democrats want to destroy the rich! Stick with me! I'll save the rich!" It's all theater.
