We are a different country now than we were sixty years ago when I was a young man. There is a degree of anger and restlessness; a sense of futility and divisiveness in our country today that I have never before encountered. It seems as if we have lost any unity of purpose and as a result, have trouble even recognizing and certainly resolving many major problems that potentially threaten our way of life. Several months ago, I contacted ten well educated, well informed friends and colleagues. They contributed ideas regarding the most serious problems our country faces today. I then compiled, prioritized; did hundreds of hours of research and developed a long-range plan which, depending on the whims of politicians, will produce very positive results. It is intended to increase voter interest and activity and show how, over possibly a 20-year period of time, we can eliminate the national debt, take many people off the welfare rolls, create thousands of new jobs, and improve our air quality through wide-spread use of green energy sources. These initiatives are not limited to decreasing our national debt, or rebuilding our infrastructure, as important as those things are. They will also go a long way to decrease poverty, crime, and substance abuse; and improve the general economic, physical and mental health of our entire country. This is not a “left” or a “right wing” plan; it is an effort to improve the standard of living and increase the quality of life for the American people, uniting us in a way we haven’t been united since World War Two.
