    Lack of greatness. We, as a country, have lost the will to succeed.

    I don't disagree with what you are saying, in fact I believe that is indeed a very big problem. But I disagree with it being the number 1 cause of problems, as what you describe is also a result of Greed.

    In fact, pretty much everything that everyone is saying can be blamed on greed.

    Compeition overseas which can be remedied by government subsides, quality work, and cheaper education.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Real reasons not listed. They are:
    1. Unfunded and unnecessary wars.
    2. Banking deregulation

    The last one should say "Hussein Obama" for the lulz.

    Anyway, where to even start? Weak industry, unbalanced trade, market regulations are all wrong, taxation is done all wrong, the huge money pit in the Middle East, a multi-trillion dollar deficit, so on and so forth.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Which is worse than socialism how? Socialism is stable, I give you that, it reduces everyone to abject poverty, kills intellectual and scientific advancements and generally causes nothing but undesirable results from stagnation. Instability is better than stagnation at the lowest common level.

    The top reason it's a crisis is that we have labeled it a crisis.
