    What are your thoughts and perceptions regarding the future?  Do you see the future as totally unlimited possibilities or do you view the future as becoming a wide chasmic dichotomy between the rich and poor, the powerful and the underdogs, and other opposite groups in society?   Do you believe that our precious children will have it much, much worse than we have?   Has the playing field and rules changes dramatically?    What is your premise regarding this?.

      With stupidity in motion in Congress the future isn't as bright as it should be.
      I see a future where the citizens' power get established, then equality and equal rights will be established, which will make the playing field of living and economic renewal returning more profit for more people, while poverty and homelessness, and starvation all get addressed.
      The saying that we must do it for the children is outdated, worn out and mostly misused by misguided idiots. Is the future a pretty picture for them? That depends on what they learn and how they apply it.
      The playing field in America regarding the Economy has never been fair or level. Not since the inception of America.

      The foundation for America was to be a Republic based on human value and values. It was supposed to be equality and equal rights for all people. But, women couldn't vote? blacks were slaves? Yet, they manage to form a country anyways. I wonder how that happened? Oh yeah, it was the most wealthiest of the colonies who did the creation of America. Slave owners, which was a business, so that made them businessman, who would be able to utilize the masses in order to absorb as much wealth as possible without anyone else being aware of it.

      Equality and Equal Rights are non-existent. Just ask a religious person if they have their freedom? Just ask a non-believer if they think they have freedom? Ask a woman if she is feeling oppressed?

      Competition in America's marketplace is a falsehood. Big business will do whatever it can to keep small business from growing. It may seem like a good business strategy, but it is detrimental to growth. Price manipulation from big business can be so damaging to a small business, if not put them out of business. So, no the playing field for business in America's economy is not level.
