  • Mr. Pruett, you say "Will our city, town and county governments have enough money available to provide the basic needs of its people?" I disagree with the very idea that any branch of government has to provide my basic needs! So how can I seriously read any further? There is the rub. Too many people think like you and I can almost hear them going "baaaaaa" ... We have gone too far and can never get back. A wise person once told me that we get what we deserve and I think that is where we are now.

  • JPC,

    You are right. Gridlock is the best that we can hope for.

    A perfect government in America would be a Conservative President who is strong in Foreign Affirs to properly be the Commander in Chief, a conservative Democratic led House of Representatives and a conservative Republican Senate.

    I emphasize conservative because it is the foundation of what our Constitution founders intended. It is also a more restrained lifestyle and demonstrates stability.

    Above all, our Constitution was written to limit the federal govenment.

    It is good when government does less which allows us to do more.

  • I think all the unpleasantness and negativity is getting quite old. It is making people feel like there is no hope of anything ever getting better.

    "Their was huge support on both sides of the isle for the war in Iraq."

    Yes, for the misleading information that was told to start the war.

  • The negativity is past the checks and balances stage.

    On both sides its "My way or the highway". Nothing will ever be accomplished with attitudes like that. Then its off to the ridiculous verbal slandering's if opinions don't match. I think it does not speak very well for the whole country, to be acceptable of behavior like that.

    People have to get along to a degree to move forward. We have to move forward, not be constantly be stuck in stalemates.
