For many, the answer to the question, “Is America in Crisis” has an obvious answer. “Look around,” some will say. States are broke, the Federal government is broke, the middle class is getting squeezed, more than 43 million Americans are on some form of government assistance – oh, and there is a push to replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency. Some would say this is a crisis.
Others will say this is all just simple scare tactics by one party or the other. Personally, if I just look at those whom I associate with on a daily basis, folks are a bit cautious, some are out of work, others are working but have no revenue – the picture looks much different now than it did a few years ago. So who is right?
