In my opinion …

Our government, which I believe to be the best in the world, is struggling. Personally, I would not want the President’s job. Never will please everyone, always dealing with the media, always having to defend themselves, always having to deal with Congress, who is most of the time disagreeing, and the rest of the world. He’s the man in charge of decisions that keep us safe and out of harm’s way. I take my hat off to those that have served in our government, even though I don’t always agree with their decision-making.

In my opinion, an 8- or 12-year term is all that should be allowed for Congressmen. Keep the Congress fresh. More common people, I believe, would help with the ability to see the common person better. The government is a servant to the people, and in my opinion, that has got lost in politics.

In my opinion, the health care, especially for veterans and current military is not enough. Disabled people, those with low functioning abilities and the needy (not those that can work, but don’t and cost tax payers millions, but those that truly are in need) should be taken care of.

In my opinion, everyone in our great nation should have health care, period. Insurance companies are unaffordable for many. Many nations just provide health care for their people. In my opinion, we should too. Quit spending trillions of dollars on things that are not necessary. Spend for the good of the American people. Our economy is a mess.

Let’s all join together as a nation and get out of debt, feed our selves and build quality products here (not made in China).
