Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.
No matter what people think America has always been able to dig itself out of it's problems. America has been in bad situations before and survived, why? Because Americans have an uncanny ability to put aside their diffrences and band together in a time of crisis.
i can say that things were diffrent not to long ago, one thing really stands out to me is that Americans used to never identify themselves by who they voted for, in fact I remember that to ask someone what party you belong to or will vote for was considered rude and the answer would be "none of your F****** business". I do beleive America will survive and prosper but it won't be because of 1 man or one paticular president it will be because the people of America decide to. Their are many people wanting America to fail but if it ever does it will create such a huge power vacum the world could easily fall into chaos. I saw this clip a few weeks ago and it amazes me how a fictiional television show can mirror real life....

Let say Jesus come down and replac Obama.
He wanted to imposes new law. But wait, he has to pass Conggress for that. Does all people would agree ? wait, lobby is in progress...
How long does it takes ? wait, we dont know. So Jesus finally comes and meet each of them personally. By the time, all agreement are on table, wait, unemployment rate rises, opposition suddenly back off and critizes Him, thus the number of conggressmen needed to approves law are invalid now....
Whats the new law about ? Peace ? Thats not good for weaponry businesses. In long term it could shut the whole CIA and Pentagon down from businesess
Lets change it , HEalthcare, Thats not good neither for pharmaeutical company, they dont want to give more discounts, but raising prices would means more slots in government's budget. Thats not good, Other department doesnt want a budget cut for that plan...
While things in progress
Wait, CIA reported, Iran is ready to launch Nuke on Israel....
Jesus getting mad and decided to banishes all of them ? Wait, thats Authoritarian. Stalinists/Nazi version...
God cant do that, thats unfair...
The three words women hate to hear when having sex: "Honey, I'm home!"
Health care nowadays not easy in other countries too..medical expenses, insurances whatever ..its really expensive. It is common with new administration across countries to impose tax when the previous one washed away the govt fund.
US is such a GIANT w strong foundation, it take more time even to fall, may be bush can given one more term
I heard, US security spending is huge compare to other countries, yes again people to bear
And about outsourcing its symbol of US companies don't bother about their own people as they get their work done efficiently at lower cost..
I think this is the game most Americans want: the one who stands at the middle the most, wins.
I think the OP needs to watch God Bless America the movie. I watched it 5 weeks ago and found it quite entertaining. Certainly not a movie they'll be screening at RNC meetings.

This thread earned me again troll reputation and I do feel insulted when I express my support to Republican and my believe in GOD and someone accused me as a troll.
I dont want USA to fall. I love America. Obama policy do not help out American economy.
His idea of created Job is building infrastructures and more government hiring. So when all the roads and bridges built and... what? ...still no jobs available.
His tax cut policy is like giving a child a pocket money.. Now the money is spent and jobs still are not there. But I must thank Obama for his policy that gave me tax money back in 2009 .. thousands of dollar where my husband is in the 2% and we dont even require to pay any tax... Of course I gave this money back by spending a whole of my yearly budget in US. I suffered myself not to spend money in China so I can stimulate business in America. I am America fan.
His policy for GM? GM is big in China and hiring more chinese. The one in Detroit?... please enlightened me that the one in Detroit is still going...
House price. Those tax benefit policy help my house price in the beginning of 2009, but my house price has dropped 20% since then and it's in the county that supposedly resistant.
My Indonesian friend who has masterdegree in civil engineering suffered pay cut since 2008. A lot of my friends who has small business are struggling to meet their need.
In real life, Obama policy isn't succesful. He had his chance. In my opinion, America should try the other way. Try different approach that offered by the other candidate. Who knows maybe this approach will give different impact. Romney is a businessman, maybe he will run US like China. China built it's economy to be like this in 2 decades! Maybe he will fail... who knows. Just like Obama 4 years ago, no one knew. But we know Obama now.. why choose him again?
I appreciate others who has the opposite opinion about this. But I am dissapointed with those who redbricked me with trolling reason and apparently they don't cross the line.
