Is there anything the government does that is actually effective? They seem to get in the way more than they actually help.

There should be no income tax. No corporate income tax. It needs to be a consumption tax. The reason is simple: There is a large % of people who make $ without taxation in the underground economy. Consumption tax eliminates all tax cheats. 10-20% per service or goods purchased.

Perception is the key though. There are those who believe Obama created the earth, sun, and moon....its a perception that he really wants to help the needy. Its a false perception, but a perception nonetheless.

Do you blame Bush for the economy during his presidency? If so, Obama owns this as well.

Prove it otherwise. The recession started under the careful and prudent eyes of a Democrat majority in both the house and senate. They carefully allowed the economy to implode, and Bush sat by and let them. I am sure he was tired of the fight against the intellectual morons...but, he was still POTUS and allowed it. I blame Bush, he was in charge. You, on the other hand, blame Bush when Obama is in charge. You see the difference? Accept the failure of leadership and we can move on from the last 12 years.
If we continue to believe there are moderate Muslims, we are doomed as a civilization. There are no moderates. Taqqiya allows deception as a way to infiltrate and kill. Taqqiya: Imam: Fatwa: Jihad: War. There is no other way around it. It will happen, a matter of when and not how.
Legalize it already.
In regards to education...blame the students. Sure, teachers, the unions, the facilities, the lack of choice plays into our low education results. However, if the students have no desire to learn, how can anything change that? Go to a poor school. Most students do not give two shits about learning.

Progressive income taxes of any sort has been a failure. Non-reporting and under-reporting, tax loopholes, all of it has been a failure. Eliminate income taxes, corporate taxes, and institute a consumption tax of 10-15%. Everything bought and sold (is this not GDP?) would be taxed. Those who are here illegally or who operate under the table....taxed. Corporations who hide $ overseas to avoid taxation....taxed. Someone smarter than me tell me why we cant do this? Seems simple, but I know there is a reason we dont do it....??
Ban unions. Antiquated, bloated, and worthless.
