Welcome to How Save America in Several Easy Steps.
Presumably you've noticed that the whole government thing isn't really working today. And while the Occupy Wall Street folk are doing a fantastic job of drawing attention to the many, many problems affecting Americans, they have purposely avoided offering specific proposals to address them.
We -- the other contributors and I -- suffer from no such humility. Or -- better -- we've come across some fairly terrific ideas proposed by other folk, and we've combined them into the posts which will follow.
Feel free to agree or disagree, and feel especially free to take these ideas and make them better. The goal here isn't perfection, but to present some robust ideas and hope, somehow, they cut through the status quo politically (and in the media).
And it beats hanging out in bars. But not by much.
