Is the country going in the right direction?

We are at a pivotal point in American history.
99% of the people believes that the US is going in the wrong direction.

The American dream was once:

  • Work hard
  • Own a home
  • Fulfill marriage and family life
  • Take advantage of opportunities
  • Practice your faith of choice
  • Balance freedom and responsibility

Today there is a new dream taking place:

  • Work enough to get by
  • Customized family experience
  • Be spiritual but not religious
  • Demand freedom and rights
  • Entitled to personalized moral code
  • Situational truth
  • Advocate the new virtues
  • Happiness: comfort, convenience choices, connections, experiences
  • Unimaginable shift in our values

(This is not what the founding fathers envisioned).

A survey among conservatives found their attitudes as follows:

84% concerned about the future
99% country is headed in wrong direction
99% govt is doing too much
90% angry about the state of America
94% morals and values are declining
71% ready to engage in creating significant change

What do you think needs to be done to get us going in the right direction?
