Interesting time for politics. It is very interesting how so much blame is being pointed at the current administration. Those of you who know me, know that I am a far left liberal, but when I look at the biggest issues we face today I find that the Republicans are just as guilty when they are in power. Maybe this time government has gotten bigger faster and debt rising faster, but don't be fooled Bush/Regean and others did not make government smaller when they were in power. Furthermore the business of Congress is broken on both sides; pork is the problem, but if they did not bring it home they would not be doing their job. So where does this bring us? Tea Party? As much as I don't like many of there stances, especially on social issues, I do like where a third party may take us. We need a completely different way of doing governmental business. I'm afraid a complete breakdown of the system is the only way out, because no one really has the ability to change the system by themselves.

History is full of examples of what we are about to face including in our countries short history: American Revolution, Civil War, WWII/Depression and what is about to happen.
