WMissow:Thanks for responding.
In the days of Reagan (ie) our economy was more LINEAR; meaning that America was still the controlling world Capitalist power.
Today it is more complicated; where China and the emerging nations have made it more like an competition WEB.
There is a lot more global competition now from billions of people entering the free market place since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Finally: There are the social factors of increasing entitlements for the growing number of poor and working poor, resulting partially from the religious arm of GOP's war on Planned Parenthood and discouraging birth control in the disadvantaged communities.
Not to mention the Catholic Church's discouraging contraception in much of the impoverished Catholic Hispanic population; which immigrated here over the last twenty years.
Millions of car washers and lawn cutters can’t support their growing families on Coolie Wages.
This is leading to even MORE economic overhead; so don't expect a return to the old days of expansion and runaway American prosperity.
The SIMPLE economic factors which made America great in the past; -no longer apply.
Immigration and the defeat of world Communism has changed America; and the world; -forever.
Traditionalists are just going to have to get used to it; and learn to innovate; as many are doing now by making products and selling world-wide from their own websites; working out of their garages and basements.
I don't believe Conservatives understand this; and any attempt to solve today’s problems with yesterday's solutions may make matters worse; a LOT worse.
The poor are having children, the middle class will pay the bill; while the rich laugh all the way to the bank.
Welfare and Socialism are here forever; and the Middle Class has to adapt by making money in unorthodox (yet legal) ways.
I know someone who makes specialized items in his garage. The materials cost him a few dollars; and he sells the items for a hundred a piece.
The average Middle Class Joe can no longer just get out of high school, work on the assembly line; and make a good living.
He (or she) has to now think and create in order to survive in this new American environment while paying the bills for the parasites and the hopeless.
