I'm amazed at how Hillary could have ever had a favorable rating up to 67% in the past & even up to 66% in the past 2 years. The average US voter must be an idiot. Well, I'm also amazed they elected Obama as President not once, but TWICE... so that proves they are idiots. I see no hope for the USA. Our total collapse is coming fast indeed!!

For Love of Country, Impeach Obama

"For Love of Country, Impeach Obama" -It's what America should do, but don't count on our Congress to do it, since they are also mainly "bought & paid for" by the same people that have "bought & paid for" Obama. These Elites are out to destroy the USA, the US Dollar & US national sovereignty. They hate the Constitution, free market capitalism & sound (gold & silver) money.
It's hard to support Rand Paul who often goes out of his way to support big government loving Establishment Republicans (like Romney over his own father Ron Paul even before the GOP nomination convention & Mitch McConnell more recently over Matt Bevin in the recent Republican primary). It would be better to remain neutral in an election rather than support an Establishment Republican only because they are the likely winner against a small government & liberty loving challenger candidate.

The USA should return to our Founding Fathers' policy of non-interference in the political affairs of other nations that are of no real threat to us here at home. We could still be engaged with them in trade & business-wise. We should not be sending our military forces around the world in order to act as the world's self appointed police force spreading "democracy" forcefully. Neither can we afford to send money around the world to buy political favors. Bring the troops home, close all/most of the 800+ bases in 120+ nations around the world, stop the "foreign aid", defend the borders, mind our own business & balance the budget asap. If we did those things (as Ron Paul has been pleading with us for many years now), we'd be much more secure economically & monetarily today.

I agree, they should all lose so that there is a complete house cleaning of incumbents who have caused the USA to pile up such a huge, unsustainable debt & which will undoubtedly result in the collapse of our nation financially & monetarily. But the #1 thing we really need to do is get rid of the Federal Reserve, which is the real corrupting power behind the scene. The Fed is simply too powerful in its ability to manipulate the money supply, interest rates, all the markets, the business cycle & its ability to give money (or lend it out at zero interest) to friends & family. Absolute power corrupts absolutely & the secret owners/controllers of the Fed are absolutely corrupt. They can "buy" all the politicians they want & have laws passed to their benefit & the benefit of their friends. They are also "above the law", so there is no real justice. They make trillions of dollars by charging the average taxpayer interest year after year on money they simply print out of thin air. Nobody else on the face of the Earth gets so rich for basically doing no work year after year. We need to return to Constitutional money: gold & silver, which cannot be printed out of thin air & are a real storage form of monetary wealth which no banker makes interest on year after year (like the debt-based monetary Ponzi scheme we now have).

We should do what the Constitution says we need to do: have Congress declare war. If enough average voters really think that a country that hasn't attacked us yet is too big a threat of our survival the most want a war, then they can encourage their Representatives to declare war. I bet they won't. But they will demand a strong defense.

"...the solution is to attack the invader, not sit back and wait for the invasion." -A contradiction in logic! If someone doesn't attack us, they aren't the invader!! We become the invader by using a "pre-emptive" attack against them!!

"Our military should be used for defense, not to police the world." -That pretty much sums it up. Unless someone is a direct threat to the USA homeland or attacks us, we should mind our own business in foreign affairs. We can talk, trade & do all sorts of business with nations around the world, but we should not be attacking them if they are no threat to us or forcing them to accept what we think is a better form of government. Such a goal is neither practical, nor affordable in being the world's self appointed policeman (or another appropriate term might also be the world's bully if things don't go the way we like elsewhere for whatever reason). Like it or not, the days of the USA economic & military empire are about over. We are bankrupt, but we just haven't hit bottom yet. 3 main reasons for our bankruptcy: 1. An out-of-control welfare state with loss of a level playing field, free market capitalism. Central economic planning is always inefficient & will fail. 2. An out-of-control warfare state where the military/industrial/intelligence complex wastes mega-bucks on unnecessary wars, overpriced/useless weapons & takes away our liberties in exchange for an Unconstitutional police state. 3. The Federal Reserve (private banking cartel that controls our monetary system & can manipulate interest rates, business cycles & all the markets). Too much power in the hands of too few & too corrupting. We need to phase out/end the Fed & return to sound money (gold/silver) as a reliable storage form of wealth.
I doubt the Republican Party is reformable. It's too corrupt and we don't have a Reagan substitute who will push for a smaller government. Reagan wanted a smaller government, but even he made mistakes on that issue. He won the Cold War, but he also greatly increased deficit spending, which is what Establishment Republicans also wanted.
Yep: fewer jobs, businesses will tend to open up in other places where they can take advantage of lower labor costs, more automation & poorer economy overall. The USA is turning into the USSA more & more each day. This was the land of opportunity, small government, lots of freedom. Now it's the land of big government with government dependent sheeple, high taxes, government regulations & ever fewer freedoms.
