U.S.: Ideas for saving the country

Here are four suggestions for saving our country.

• Term limits on elected legislators (national and state). Career politicians have lost sight, refuse to recognize or understand what the people of this country want. Most have never had a “real” job.

• Cut foreign aid to countries that hate us (which is most of them).

• Review the social programs that have created the “entitlement mentality.”

• Bring our troops back home. Saving the world cannot be our priority when we have people with no jobs. This alone could create the money required to save Social Security for our children.

If the next presidential candidate, whether Republican or Democrat, ran on this platform and implemented it, we could make this country great again. This is our last chance. Stand together.
