      The system is screwed up. I see it on a daily basis and it makes me sick. People cheating, lieing and abusing the system cause they are lazy and don't want to work or do much to get by. Wish they would make it harder for people to get the aid they need or a way to make sure they are using it what it is meant for. No wonder why each state and even the government is saying they are losing money and/or going in or are in debt. They are handing out free money to people.
      I have seen people who could really need the help or aid, but are turned away and then some jackass who doesnt really need it get it.

      99% of the problem IMHO lies with allowing companies to fund election campaigns

      Elections shouldn't be funded by private money not even the candidates.
      Let some-one collect 100.000 signatures to be able to run and then give them 1 million to fund their election with government money.

      I'm going to say what I say in every healthcare or socialism thread. The main 'problem' with this country and applying the rules of other countries is the fact that the USA has an extremely heterozygous population. Moreso than any other nation. Socialism works to certain extents in Canada and Europe because basically everyone is the same and wants the same things. So as long as we're a melting pot, socialism will not work.

      That being said, welfare should be temporary. 6 months. And you absolutely should have to pass a drug test to get it. Go look at Appalachia and tell me that mandatory drug tests for their aid wouldn't begin to start to solve some of the problems there.

      How about you read up on history and actually learn about their economic system before acting like you know what you are talking about.

      Economically they are very similar. Obamacare is much closer to fascism than it is to "socialism" as you would all say.

      For real. Bush Jr got a ton of flak for everything, yet was also considered stupid.

      I don't think he was smart enough to come up with all of the awful things that happened in those years

      Yeah, we should never have bailed out the banks. Just gave those lazy good-for-nothings no incentive to change

      it didnt' prevent anything, it just pushed the problem off until later. It's inevitable.

      You're exactly right except for the example which should read Obama. Did anyone really hear or know of him before 2008? He was a Senator for 2yrs then president out of nowhere? Obama burst onto the scene as our saviour. How's that Hope and Change working out for ya?

      It's the "world ruling elite" who prep and control the balance of governance in America and around the world. There's plenty of info out there on this subject.

      Obama did share Bush, new boss looks like the old boss. Are you a Ron Pauler?
      Is this the O bandwagon zone in here?

      It matters in local and regional elections more than the presidential elections. Vote, you slug!

      Kudos to you! Your vote counts so register up and remember, Congress holds just as much power if not more, that's where you can make a difference.

      which wouldn't be a problem if there weren't so many poor people. But that part is hard to rime with your worldview.

      Apparently you don't know enough to realize socialism depends on industry being owned by the government while fascism depends on a close relationship between government and industry
