I think that there are nearly 200 nations to date, many of which are not in the greatest condition. When you say "this country" you are leaving a broad range of countries to be commented on. Please be specific.
well the war on drugs is a success, the war on poverty is wonderful and the war on terror has been won...and public run schools are the best in the world and the post office is only a few hundred million in debt
Since Americans tend to be the most common group to assume they're the only group on the internet I'm going to assume you're talking about the US. For the record, I think it's only a matter of time. I'd say within the next 100 years the US will undergo some sort of split or civil war. I used to think 50 years, but with the country reelecting Obama, I'm feeling a bit more optimistic now.
Yes. The country is going to fall apart. In fact, since the world is flat, the country will open up across several areas and all the GOP folks will fall off. Then the country will close back together, pop some Tums, and possibly scratch itself.
Most people don't want to lose the public good we've been getting. Social Security, national security, medicare, medicaid. So the government is trying to keep the public goods while letting people have less taxes. That doesn't fucking work. You want more from the government, you pay more to the government.
This economy needs a tax hike like it needs a hole in the head. Small business are being taxed to death. A business that is just barely breaking even after taxes will not survive this hike. If they can't afford to pay taxes and stay open then those businesses are just going to close. No job for you.
Why should we afford more special treatment for businesses than we do for people? If a person lives beyond their means, we expect them to tighten their belts and deal with it; why should we not expect the same for a business? The US has been through periods where the top income tax bracket neared 90% and we still had a strong economy, so forgive me for not seeing how life will go on if we end the tax breaks.
We're all adults, assuming we voted, and if we didn't understand that actions had consequences, we wouldn't function in the adult world. Don't be a patronizing prick just because people have a different set of expectations from you about what the consequences of those actions will be.
Many Obamabots can't function in the real world. That is why they are on welfare, food stamps, and unemployment and don't care about jobs and taxes. If there are to be jobs and wealth creation there needs to be an environment that is conductive to business. Business expectations are the foundation of a growing economy. That is why the stock market was down 300 points today.
There's pros and cons in every country's government and, believe me, if your leaders were that bad the country would be a smoking crater already...or like the Middle East. Be glad you have what u have and live there instead of Africa or something; then you'd really have something to bitch about.
There are actually quite a few measures in place to keep the USA from falling apart, also one president cannot alone make the country fall apart unless he orders the football to be thrown at us, AKA nuke us with our own bomb. However, if you really want to see things get changed vote in your local elections, they are often times the ones that make the most impact in your daily life.
It might, but if it does it isn't because of Obama. To be precise, my dad and I already saw that we were heading in this direction before Bush's first term had ended. (Not blaming Bush either, although he made it worse there is no single person to blame.) America falling apart may have already been inevitable by that time.
I'm glad with the outcome since I'd rather have a guy that gets nothing done than a Mormon who fucks shit up.
But then again; I can't tell the future so maybe Romney could've actually helped and maybe obama will get something done this time . only time will tell and any stupid republican who is still complaining or even democrat for that matter should shut the fuck up, it's over and no one can do anything about it.
