It is too simplistic to blame everything on one person, or one office, or a single cause. Our national problems do not spring from personal and/or political party divisions alone. As ‘it takes two to tango’ as the old cliché goes, its still true. Truth be told, it takes ‘many’ to get to this point, and it will take just as ‘many’ to get out of it in good time. In our country, the two major problems I have observed over the years are: one, we exported our manufacturing base and along with it, our foundational jobs overseas for higher profits; and two, we opened up our borders to unfettered immigration for cheap labor. For the sake of argument, a third problem, which is now all too obvious, is our military foray into one costly and expansive war after another. Seems, no one was watching the wheel; we were in a sort of euphoric state or a state of fantasy, as if nothing and no one could ever reign over our parade. Results are obvious. So, we need to rebuild and we need to recalibrate our future national and economic well being much better than before, and based on realistic goals. Lets not place that all to familiar yet always convenient blame on those who are no better for themselves, or only out for themselves, to be forthcoming for the rest of us, such as the politicians, the bureaucrats, and profiteers, among so many others. Nor should we hold the migrant workers from south America entirely responsible for the whole mess we've created here. After all, wouldn’t you crawl and even jump a wall or a fence just to reach food if you were starving? Its not the innocent we should be wary of, its those who thought we could feed the entire world and still fatten ourselves beyond any reason. In order to get back on track again, lets learn our lessons from history, both recent and distant, and not repeat the past mistakes. To do so, we need everyone to work together, rich and poor, young and old, large and small, hand in hand, for Rome wasn’t built overnight, patience and prudence should be the order of the new day, and...toward our future renaissance. It will come.
