You're upset they are holding hearing to come up with ways to fix the economy??
No I am upset that they are holding hearings on ways to take over the economy.
If you think that it is ok for a group of people to have full control of everyone's lives and that is the ideal fix, then I guess that is where our
As of now, I don't feel like having money I saved into my retirement being but into the control of the Social Security Administration due to the
unpleasant fact that SS liabilities will swallow up 100% of the projected U.S. government budget in about 15-20 years. I don't feel like being force
to put my money into something that is doomed to fail.

Then why do we have a government at all? We have a very small group of people governing our lives every single day. It's their job to have meetings
and hearing in order to get to the bottom of things.
Edited: Because, apparently (as determined by myself alone), I am full of it!

It is the federal governments job to do ONE thing, and they have greatly overstepped their bounds. It is their job to hold together the states and to
provide a central governement to support a ratified constitution that was ratified by ALL of the states. Then members of those states who are
delegates to the Federal government gather together under the auspices of that constitution and legislate matters that affect ALL of the union of
states, again, under the auspices of that constitution that was ratified by all of the member states. There are checks and balances placed to ensure
that they do not step outside the bounds of that constitution, but even those have become corrupted and abused today.
Now we are faced with a corrupt and abusive federal government that has greatly stepped outside of its boounds. IT IS bounded by the consititution,
remember, the federal government is a union of STATES, not an entity in and of itself, and each of those states is constituted by members of its
constituency that it ultimately answers to.
If the people in charge of that federal government step outside of the bounds limited to them by the US constitution, then it is the right of the
state to reject it's membership in the union based on a breach of contract.
I am NOT saying that it should be its first step, but we can not allow the federal government to continue to step outside of it's legal bounds.
It is the corruption that has promulgated that needs to be dealt with and that prevents the built in self corrections and the built in safe guards
from working correctly and it is this that upsets us most. They allow them to trample on our rights and our constitution.
If this country keeps trampling on the constitution that it was built on, then the government has failed and it is our duty to stand up and restore
our liberties as guaranteed us.
Remember, those of us who have dutifully served this country did so by swearing an oath to defend the constitution of these united states from all
enemies foreign and domestic and believe it when I say that domestic enemies are enemies to the constitution, not necessarily to the members of the
