    The US needs to return to a manufacturing economy, become an exporter of resources, return to more American/capitalist values, and fix the debt problem. The American culture also needs to be reminded what once made us great. I can guarantee it wasn't socialistic policies.

Children are indoctrinated into thinking they have to get fancy degrees and work for someone else. The main focus should be on business. That's not how capitalism works. A degree from Yale isn't going to put food on the table. Profit from the business you created is.

    Oh. Yeah. I see your point.

    And welcome to the board, by the way.

    Does it matter that you think concisely, clearly and are able to verbalize your points? Yeah, I kind of think it does.

    I did; I may have misplaced a sentence and used a wrong transition. It's an anonymous message board. Who cares? Before you say you do, I am very, very good at english when I feel like it. You wouldn't want to bark up that tree.

    I'm very confused. I gave you a huge compliment and you somehow reversed it.

    There is no poll here, but I am sure that this country will last until well after I am dead. We have had bumps in the road since the founding, today is no different.
