The only things bigger than our national debt are the egos of the politicians and pundits — and the stock market only reflects the actions of people trying to make a buck without actually working to earn it. Hence the ups and downs.
I think our two political parties should be abolished. Everyone running for office should be an independent so he or she can vote for the good of the country, not their parties. If Ron Paul would change to an independent instead of a Republican, I would vote for him in a heartbeat.
