We the people as citizens of the United States of America have allowed our great nation to actually become what it is today. It was us who elected to have the officials placed into their positions. A balanced budget would not help our country’s serious issues, national debt being one of the issues at the top of our list. It is make it or break it time for us as Americans who wish to remain living in a land that is so proudly referred to as Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. It is time for serious, and maybe even what some might call drastic, solutions to be looked at in order to have fast results that could have very positive effects for the future of Our Great Nation for another 150 years instead of the certain collapse of our country or at best staying where we have come to now at this date and time. This is far from what made the United States of America the great country it is. We the people have to make our stand now that we still have such opportunity to do so.

Here are a few solutions that might help our situation, first revise our foreign policy from what it is now, and let the foreign policy and foreign problems be just that, and allow foreigners to handle their own issues. That in turn will allow us to handle our nation’s issues first, which are far more important than anyone else’s at this time. Second, cut backs are also needed but not on anything that could continue to aid any fellow Americans. After all, it is many small foundations that were given a chance that helped us grow as a nation. So let’s not take away from any of these struggling foundations or any people that are struggling already due to a lot of cut backs. We can’t print more money; the value of a dollar is already low enough. But what we can do is free up some unnecessary cost.

Send all these foreign prisoners that populate more than half of our federal prison system back to their foreign lands. See how much money that will free up to help our cause of paying our national debt alone, especially over the next five to ten years.

Another scenario could also be looking at which states are doing the best economically and maybe try using some of their ideas to help the rest of our nation.

And last, but not least, if this administration does not simply look back into its history books and maybe learn what was the foundation that started it all for this great nation and realizing that it is time to take care of ourselves before helping everyone else and what it took all those years ago to help bring in major revenue then it is indeed time for drastic measures. It is ‘make it or break it’ time for us as Americans as a whole to take these measures if our Country is to continue to be the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. We should be Proactive and not Reactive.
