You don't really have to watch speeches. There are other ways to figure out what is happening. I don't see many speeches because i don't watch a lot of T.V.

What about the one's who have died serving? Would you deport their families?
Get rid of allowing the immigration to go where it's going right now. Stop giving NON-CITIZENS handouts while the people that are citizens of this country can barely, if at all, get any help because they are citizens.
Pour money and benefits into education, teachers..
That's exactly what the current administration is doing. Our withdrawal from the middle east allows us to invest more into those areas. The current administration wants to hire more teachers and put more towards education, as well as increased benefits for veterans.
I agree. That's why we are saving money now that we were spending in Iraq to go towards technology, infrastructure, and other areas. As far as corporations and lobbying, you can throw some of the blame on the supreme court for allowing them to spend freely to support or appose candidates for president and congress. All that special interest money is a win for the banks of wall street, oil companies, and other special interest to silence the voices of the people.
Technology... it's a long road there my friend. That would include the economy, subsidies, and taxes... this nation is ran by corporations that lobby and promote campaigning by getting millions and millions of dollars from the government, while they don't build an infrastructure that promotes competition, employment, and furthering technological benefits. That goes to the government and the agencies that are put into place by them.
So you are saying that we should bail out big banks but not help the middle class? Tell me the negatives that came out of the bailout. It saved more than a million jobs, saved families from going homeless, and it really helped the economy. And to top it off, the loans have been paid back in full and GM is profiting again, plus the industry is seeing even more positive growth before all of this happened. Letting them go under and build back up would of crippled an already struggling economy. The bailout was the right thing to do.
Was the auto bailout the right thing to do? No. It wasn't. Let them go under and build back up with work, competition, and consumer responses. Nah, let's just fork over billions of dollars to show them that they can do whatever they want, and we'll bail 'em on out.
Which is why I don't belong to any party, but our politics have always played a role in our country on every level. We do have some crappy politicians but I don't believe every single one should be put into that category. That would be like judging all cops, firefighters, soldiers, teachers, etc. on the actions of a few. Do you actually think that any president we have had doesn't care about the country?
Explaining why I agree or disagree is pointless because they are ALL on a campaign trail. That is all. They don't give two shits about what they say.... politics and parties are the reason this country continues to fall further and further. I'm sure the deficit going that much further in four years is good because of the few things that "helped" the country. ffs, puhlease.
My freedoms haven't been taken away so i don't know what you're talking about. I still have the same if not even more freedom that i have since the day i was born. You can think what you want but don't expect everyone to have that "sky is falling mentality" about this country. Its not all great but not as bad as you make it out to be. I believe in the things i can see for myself, and what I see is a country who is going through some tough times but we will overcome it. We have before and we will again. We may always have complaints against things like government and politics, but that shouldn't be confused with not being proud to be American.
Dude look I am not having a go but you are blind to the country you live in
I might be on the outside looking in. But I have learned a lot from the u.s.a more then I guess you, because you see you're country from a side that makes you question others for speaking what is really wrong and how they know how to fix it
You believe in fairys and little pink truths... where we all believe in what's actually wrong and the real dangerous path the states is going in
You have a mindset to believe in what you're leader and others feed you and its complete bullshit. Look we can go back and forth on who is right and who is wrong.
But you have to understand that either way, you have to live in a country were you're freedom of everyrhing and liberty is slowly if not already been taking away from you
Mate focus on what you have and that is you're family and friends and remeber they are you're greatest richies and the country you were born into is slowl
