With horses, the key to a good horse is a good foundation. What is the foundation of the United States? The citizens are the foundation. If there isn't a good foundation, then there isn't a good final product. So maybe our governmental leaders need to stop trying to fix the final product and start focusing more on the foundation? Maybe the government and the country needs to look deeper into the roots of the problem and then try to fix the foundation, instead of trying to just fix the outside. Does any of that make sense? It all made sense in my head, I'm just not sure if it makes sense now that I've typed it out.
I would just have to disagree on what makes our foundation. I think the leadership is the foundation. When our leadership is weak, the people get weak with nothing to believe in. When our leadership is strong, the people have a reason to want to emulate it. Our leadership is extremely weak right now.
