Americans generally do not buy into the direction that things are going these days, according to a new poll. Neither do I. America is a great nation, but the direction it is moving in right now just does not make a lot of sense.
Elected officials are spending tax money like a bunch of drunken sailors on liberty, and things could be a lot better. Government on many levels seems unsound right now.
Things can turn around, but it takes new initiatives and not more of the same. This election is another opportunity to revisit the way government is approached. At some point, new initiatives take new faces and new priorities.
