A lot of typing for something devoid of coherent thought.
Sounds to me if I follow your thought it's...Let the old sore die. The way we conduct and do business in general!
If it's possible for the government to stop being overbearing then I wonder what ingenuity would take place?
We are where we are today because of dishonesty. Credit is not the lube that runs America despite what our brilliant minds might say.
I don't believe our problems can't be fixed...but continuing to do things the way we used to with unethical means is only short term and at best crippling the USA as well as other countries.
America is strong on manufacturing. We need to protect this and kill the Nafta agreement, and the other bills/agreements that kills our competitive edge.
America is strong on democracy, freedom for all! America is strong on capitalists...we shouldn't tax them as this only kills the freedom and the youthful entreprenureal spirit that exists in us as people.
America is strong on families between man and woman and children.
America is free because strong men and women gave their lives for us to have what we have today.
What do you believe America is strong in?
Hope this clarifies my thought!
