    How to save this country?

    How can we as Americans save this country? Removing Representatives? Getting rid of the IRS? Flat Tax?

    Presuming of course that the country needs saving, it's weird how everyone is jumping on the America is dying bandwagon, I am sure people during the depression thought the same thing, times have been harder before and probably will be again but the country isn't dying it's just going through a relatively short rough patch, nothing like as bad as the depression or as long. No need to be so pessimistic!

      I agree that we are going through a rough time. America I know is not dying.  I feel we need to scale back on our goverment & spending.

      You sound like you lived through the great depression. May I ask what your personal experience was?

      Haha I'm not that old tongue the evidence is statistical (the depression lasted much much longer than this crisis and was much worse).

      Statistical is correct but everything is adjusted for current circumstances.  As for lasting longer, we haven't come out of this one yet so that remains to be seen.
