No matter what political party you may belong to, take time to read this.

America does NOT need divisive language and/or political slogans. America does NOT need class warfare.

America needs solutions for businesses and the working class. Neither can survive without the other. America needs someone to step up in leadership and lead our country. America needs politicians to stop blaming the other party and take responsibility for their own parts.

America needs both political parties to look out for America and HER best interest. American voters need to demand that the political partisanship be brought to a halt.American voters need to demand action. That action means cooperative efforts and compromise from both parties.

How many folks would like to see the President (Obama) or his opponent (Romney) actually take responsibility for our current messy situation? How many folks would like to see both parties actually admit to their part in the problem? No one is completely at fault and no one is fully responsible for the current situations. Both parties have perpetuated our current problems and each party has a responsibility and should honestly admit to it. American voters should demand honest debates about solutions.

How many folks would like to see both parties actually stick to the issues at hand? How many folks would like to see solutions and not slander and blame? How many folks would like to see some honesty admitted by both parties?

Although I lean conservative on many issues I also have a myriad of Democratic persuasions as well. I want to see real solutions brought forward during the upcoming debates. I'd love to see our political leaders take responsibility and own up to the problems our country is currently facing. I honestly believe that the politician who actually takes complete responsibility, doesn't shirk his part of the problem and stops blaming the other side would be the winner of the election.

America wants genuine honesty. American voters crave for America to be great again. America needs action and problem solving ideas, not lip service.

Lisa S Satcher,
