Lead by Example
The government has presented fiscal responsibility to the people that has created a society in debt up to their ears. In addressing this problem and spcifically the stock market no one is discussing the necessity of balanced budgets or paying off the national debt. The media is failing in its criticism by allowing themselves to be part of the blind eye. The economy consistently ranks as the number one issue voters care about. This being the case, is there a possibility that our debt effects our economic progress? Absolutely. It would be foolish to run a business or a home on similar economic policies. The media is not looking past the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac. Examine the consequences of our debt and or the lack of support behind dollar. The politicians don't want to fix the real problems because that would require discipline and dedication to securing the future past the next election cycle. Therefore someone outside of politics has to educate the nation about where the source of this economic problem exists and what can be done about it.
