I'm reminded of the phrase "When your a hammer everything looks like a nail." Your litany of whats wrong with America has been repeated by every generation of every country since man learned to complain. But the statement; " that many of us put far too much stress on the presidential elections and not enough stress on our personal responsibilities as citizens and leaders," was however, spot on. And that is why this election is so important.
Obama is all about government solutions and Romney is all about personal responsibility, and individual achievement.
