Do you think it's time for another American revolution?

Our government is out of control.our rights are being taken away a little more everyday. Big corporations are buying our elected officials into office. The health care law is too expensive, our veterans arent getting the treatment they deserve. Government officials were never intended to get paid. government assistance programs are spending way too much, our debt is rising everyday, and I don't see any changes coming anytime soon.

Do you think a 2nd revolution will get our country back to how it used to be? When government actually worked for the people. Do you think a second revolution is even possible? If so... what are we waiting for?

    Oct 26 2013: Bambi, I never thought I would hear so much talk about anarchy in my life time. In various forms I hear it daily now. We have the tools in place to enact change ... its called a vote. There are various statistics but they all say the same thing .. only a small percentage of people vote.

    In general I agree with what you are saying. The problem is that these programs are being "sold" to a public that hears what it wants. They hear that Obamacare is "free" health care. Obamacare is about insurance. The cost of insurance is the same ... the difference is that it is being subsidized heavily. The difference is who is paying for it. It is designed for failure so that the government, by law, can implement National Health Care ... socialism.

    We have spawned generational welfare mentality in the US and that is being reflected in the vote. We once sought to assist people with needs ... the "new" society now calls these entitlements.

    Change is not always for the better. The shadow government of the US and its architect George Soros and chief operating officer Harold Ickes .... have tremendous effect and control over the administration. The single goal is One World Government ... with Soros at the head ... King George. He is dedicated to the eradication of the Republican Party. Why?

    A return to a Constitutional Government would eliminate many of the concerns of a corrupt government and reverse the elite direction they have taken of being above or outside of the very laws they pass.

    The answer is to educate and get the vote out.

    Thanks, Bob.
    • Oct 28 2013: Hi Bob
      What about the dead people that have been voting? Obviously a scheme to fix the votes. If our voting is corrupted our voices are silenced. I don't think a one world government is a bad idea at all, however whims to say what laws. should be implemented? Then comes the religion aspect which acts as the wedge stopping any kind of positive advancement. Not to mention alot of the countries would be disputing giving their women the right to think without asking permission.

      Every religion Ive looked in to is summed up the same, yet carried out so differently. If we could all just agree on "the greater good" one world government might be possible.

      I'm not 100% on the exact protocol of obamacare but I will say this, I agree we need healthcare. But wouldn't supply and demand suggest the cos be t lowered with so many people being forced to have it? The research I've done shows an increased cost doesn't make sense to me. And quite honestly as a college student a mother and occupational server, I can't afford this at least until after graduation anyway

        Oct 28 2013: Bambi, You, like many others, may have misunderstood Obamacare. It is not about healthcare. It is designed for failure and to cause a death spiral in the insurance companies. When it fails ... because there is a law in place ... the federal government will come forward with National health care just as both Hilary and Obama want. To support that the taxes will go to approximately 40% as they are in the countries that have mass social programs .... and are falling apart such as in the EU.

        Now you understand why the elite leadership voted themselves out of the program. Just as in the communist and socialist countries the elite are above the law and have special treatment. They would never subject themselves to the common treatment given the people.

        I would suggest that you read up on George Soros and Harold Ickes the two principles of the shadow government. Then you would better understand what the intent of One World Government is. You may also be interested in UN Article 21 that Hilary pledged the United States to.

        The increased costs are to offset the death spiral ... the system is based on the young and healthy paying high costs for services they do not need. When they refuse and pay the $95 fine imposed the insurance companies will have nothing coming in and a lot going out for the older and sicker policy holders ... do you now see the design for failure. This is a political game where the administration is saying you are so stupid that you will not figure it out until it is to late.

        The government shut down was not about Obamacare ... it was about the rampant spending that has put us 17 trillion dollars in debit.

        You are just a pon in the administrations effort to change the USA to a socialist country and a move to the one world government of King Soros.

        Good luck in your studies and the best to your family. I wish you well, Bob.
