This OP is a simple question, but one which I am sure will receive a variety of answers. Basically, it is this: How can America best turn her economy around, and become prosperous? I'll start by giving my opinion, although I'll admit it's not a full fledged answer yet. It's more of a "This is what we need to do but how do we do it?" answer. 1. We need to quit expanding the national debt. 2. We need to eliminate the national debt. 3. We need to get more people into the workforce and off of welfare. 4. We need to undergo budget cuts, even if it hurts. So, open the floodgates and lets the good times roll!
