Well, it's official. The nation that spread capitalism throughout the world and dominated the world economy for decades is now a bad credit risk. Reagan's shining city on a hill is now a trailer park.
I've found myself explaining to my kids what America used to be like...a country that built the tallest buildings, achieved the highest things, and led the world at everything. I've tried to describe what it felt like to live in a country where everyone knew we were the best at everything. And when I do, they look at me with an odd expression...they just can't imagine it, and seem to have a hard time believing me.
Yep...we definitely got change. But I don't see a lot of hope.
