Jeremey, there is no answer that is too wacked out... Write a hub and voice your thoughts. And thanks for the input!
The key point here is there must be all types of thoughts and "active" discussions/solutions thrown on the table. It is obvious our country is more divided than ever. And although our Presidents have a lot to do with policy, our standard of liviing and the direction our nation turns... There appears to also be a lot of destructive obstacles for the people with regard to key stakeholders power, control and greed (industries and government activities in bed with each other).
How do you change a nations "status quo" or business as usual when greed controls the power? The other point... Continue voicing your opinions. For without our voices and votes the "status quo" will not change.
Thanks to all that have/will express their opinions. And just maybe a voice(s) will resonate and multiply to the mass and reverse our course in bringing our nations people together.
Write that hub, it is one medium, and a very good one to let your voice be heard.
