    It is not the role of nor within the power of the government to fix the economy. All the government can do is make things worse.

    Why did we allow the government to allow a NON-government entity in the Federal Reserve to print our money so that individual men PROFIT from our nations debt?

    The democrats fail in that bigger government providing jobs is nothing more than being a middle man taking money from we the people skiming off the top and creating an unsustainable business. One that will one day implode into itself from lack of funding. USPS, Medicaide, Medicare, social sec. No government entity is profitable, so why does Obama keep doing the same thing expecting a different results.

    The republicans fail in that they trade this nations power for a global presence. Putting profits before America.

    The tea party is just a showboat.

    That is why the constitution party's values are most closley aligned with the best intrests of America and we the people. It calls for a government that is fiscaly accountable. Yes the US should print money as a medium of exchange backed by silver, instead of the FED wich is owned by investors. The USA should not regulate it though, just allow the markets to work themselves out.

    What kind of misrepresented reporting is this: "Obama says that the recovery won't come from Washington, but from small businesses." When in reality he thinks the exact opposite is true! How many Americans will judge Obama by his actions and not by his words?
