" @Shermanator: From what we have right now, slightly less, but it's also a case of having people in power that are just, and know full well that first and foremost the interests of the people come first and not twisted little insidious, corporate agendas, lobby group systems that speak only for those with money, congress that couldn't balance a budget if they had all the money in the world, and hijacked foreign policies which are less to do about defending borders than they are defending foreign profits. "
I agree that government officials now, in all countries, are out for themselves. They say what they think needs to be said to be reallected instead of saying what needs to be said in order for change to happen. Officials also don't speack for their constichints. I agree that goverments spend money when they should be more conserned about repaying money already spend. Your right on those things.
