How did we get here?
Once we were a great nation. We made the best of most things and were admired by much of the world.
Now we are broke because we spent so much on the Iraq and Afghan wars while lowering taxes at the same time.
Our schools are going down hill. We have cut their budgets and humanities and don’t pay enough to get the best teachers to teach.
Our infrastructure is falling apart. People are not working so that they can buy products and pay taxes while the very rich are not paying their fair share either.
Too many people are unemployed or underemployed. Their jobs have been shipped overseas, robotized and downsized.
Too many people on food stamps. SNAP No jobs, no future,
People are loosing their homes. Mortgage scams happening with no government oversight or scammers going to jail.
We can do better.
