    To all the Conservative out there, what are your concerns about America and what improvements would you want to make?     Do you believe that America has gone too far regarding many issues? Why? Why not?

      For the economy, I worry about the pace of regulation. It isn't so much the number of regulations, as the rate of growth. If the economic environment is stable, people will figure out how to deal with it. But with regulations growing and changing so fast, business doesn't know what to do.

      America has gone too far - too far left in:

      1) Education
      2) Government policies (domestic and foreign policy)
      3) Entitlements
      4) Heathcare
      5) Spending, borrowing, printing money.
      6) National Security
      7) Fiscal policy (for God 's sake over 3 years with no budget?)

      If in only 25 years this country has gone from Ronald Reagan who's policies gave us the longest period of economic boom in history, back to a state of affairs worse than Reagan inherited from arguably the worst President in history, Jimmy Carter ... then there is no hope. If the pendulum can swing that far in less than one third of a generation, I doubt that it can be corrected nor the draw of the welfare state reversed in our life time - 50 years of the dumbing down of the electorate through the media and educational indoctrination creating a dependency (on government) mentality has such momentum now it can only be fixed by mass catastrophy - like a drug addict who cannot be helped until he hits rock bottom and loses everything.

      Prepare for losing everything and pray we can get it back once the addictions are broken.
