Not that simple Chris, a change occurred. American people assets are in their brains and ingenuity. We as a country has always been able to incorporate social, political, and economic change into the status quo this time we can't. A completely new game, completely new people, and completely new competitors. The Republican Party has declared only the old way can be considered. The Democratic Party can't entertain any new ideas. Chris we must institute a modern up to date funding of our government.
Do you think our country will be capable of attending, responding, and understanding that the past is not the moment??? Probably not, example the executives who ran the railroads, didn't create the airline service.
