This old house needs a new bag of tricks

This country is spiraling out of control, while our federal government digs deeper and deeper into a quest for economic prosperity, we continue to sink into the same quagmire of debt. An unrelenting quest to continue to stay on top of the global market is unraveling us at an ever increasing rate. In the past decade we the taxpayers are being forced to continue to pay for war and peacekeeping operations around the globe while our government has forgotten about its most important topic. The unwilling supporters of these operations, We the people have been forgotten. Our government’s forgetful attitude has  been a progressive downward spiral and more evidence supports our fears, that the our elected representatives have forgotten our needs.

While our government is not a kickstarter project we expect it to behave like one, we fork money out in hopes it will survive and in return every year we expect our conditions of living to not worsen, yet our donations are not appreciated thus we are not being rewarded appropriately. Our security seems to be dwindling, shootings are becoming even more deadly our government has spread its money too thin and now its is being forced to recoil from its mistakes.  while many people are blaming the entire government for its failings, nothing has been produced. Last years newspapers were covered consistently with news of economic woes, debt troubles, and violence. What will it take to pull our country out of this spiral?

Compounding issues are not aiding our recovery process, our government’s debt is still running wild, the personal debt accrued by a the average american is $47,000. Why has our nation not been able to come to terms with their illness, and ultimately take the medicine and man up.

    Wow! This post had so much energy and imagery that it really stuck out to me. I liked how you kept the metaphor of a spiraling plummet throughout the whole piece. The only thing I would say is to edit for grammatical errors, but there were not that many that I found anyway. Again, a very nice post!

    I really enjoyed reading your post! I like the fact that you didn’t put the blame on one person but you made it very general thing. I thought this very creative way to think about this issue. I wish you would have explained a little more about what the KickStart program. Otherwise, your post was very informative and awesome!
