iReport Debate: What’s your top issue?
Elimination of Greed
It is Greed which has brought American government to its standstill because it has not been able to produce enough respect for others. It is Greed which has disguised truth in so many ways among both friends and foes. It is Greed which has continued dividing Americans by Race, Gender, Nationality and Creed. It is Greed which has disappeared Courage from American character. It is Greed which has out-sourced American Jobs. It is Greed which has produced an Educational system which has been spending 90% of its time on discipline rather than on professional instruction. It is Greed which has created over consumption of material goods and under consumption of meaning of life. It is Greed which has allowed obscene society of celebrity that has taken over and assumed that it has been talent rather than simple power of media frequency and reach that has allowed it to rob American middle class from its soul, mind and pocketbook. It is Greed which has enabled Romney to hold American economic recovery hostage to ouster of a black president. It is Greed which has brought back deep-seated hatred of Republicans from tolerable to dangerous. It is Greed which has created wars around the world largely to drum up more American armament business. It is Greed which has created terrorism itself--even though I agree that the religious fanaticism must be done away with.
