This is a couple of months old but I think sometime in the last 20 years, we lost our balance as a nation, leaning to much to the left or right. Issues that really need to be tackled are just ignored. Out of control capitalism made the rich super rich, the workers at the bottom not making more money, cost of living and education have exploded along with prison populations and people are generally unhappy. Just look at how much vacation time Americans get. Why can't we balance our check book?
We need to take a hard look at what's broken and the reasons why. Out of control socialism isn't the answer nor is rugged individualism of the one man army, it needs to be a balanced solution that takes the good parts of both and add flexibility. Epic projects can't be done without a team but a good team is only as strong as it's weakest member. Find an answer that helps both. America doesn't need to be great, it needs to be a whole and just again, with that, greatness will follow.
