Sad but true. It’s going to take another Great Depression or a complete economic meltdown before people wake the hell up! It’s sad what we’ve done to the country. The founding fathers, if they could speak to us, would probably ask WTF did you learn from our words and actions to form this great nation. Sadly, the answer today would be not a helluva alot!
The Great Depression netted us the New Deal and irreparably altered American outlooks about the role of government. I don’t think another Great Depression would help.
