1. The Public Sector and Entitlements have grown too large to be supported by the Private Sector. a. Too many Public Employees earn too much salary and are promised/guaranteed too much in the way of benefits. b. The Entitlement sector has been given and promised more than can be paid for. If America is to survive, both of the above must be "scaled back". Of course, nobody wants his benefits and promised benefits to be reduced/cut... but the fact remains that "too much has been paid to too many.. and too much has been promised (Promised = "Extorted by public employee unions and promised-in-exchange-for-votes by unscrupulous politicians")... MORE THAN CAN BE HONORED". 2. The Greed/Lies of Federal Politicians.. and the accompanying deficit spending. 3. The Greed, Lies, and desire for POWER from the immoral Leftists. 4. Military is overfunded and overextended... should be reduced to "essential defense functions". Fix these things, and America has a chance. Otherwise, it's just a matter of time until America is flushed down the toilet.
