Here we go again with the democrat blaming the rep. and the rep. blaming the dem. Get real. These people are all corrupt. Both parties. As long as we let them they take their bribes and favors, do whats best for them and their resume's its all gone, We have nothing left to get us out of this hole. We shipped our work force overseas and without the working class to milk the country will crumble. It would take decades to rebuild just like it took decades to lose.
The only thing that would get america back is [ A BUY ONLY AMERICA MOVEMENT] along with everybody pulling all their money out of proven crooked banks and plasing that money in a bank that only invests in america regarless of profit margine.
This isnt going to happen . I would sugest some serious bible studies for it seems like its all comming true on the timeline stated theRE. We turned our back on truth so we reap the rewards. I suguest the teaching oF HERBERT ARMSTRONG , he has picked appart the bible for common man to understand pertaining to prophcy and time lines. Invite a Jehovah's witness to your house. Open your eyes. WE allowed our government to do horrible crimes against man and nature. We are the only ones who can change it.
Oh wait, they just started today, well that is what the Democrats have stated. The new Congress has destroyed the world.
