Let what is happening in Detroit stand as an example for what may come if citizens let the government try to solve all the problems.
Now, I am not being anti-government, for the government has a vital role in this nation. That role, however, is not to do everything for us.
What is happening in Detroit and its bankruptcy has a lot of factors, but letting the national government provide money it doesn't have into the main businesses of the city — i.e., the auto industry — has only hastened the results.
It seems to me that the current administration writes down all of their plans with an imaginary base and are surprised when they don't work in reality. Could someone please tell them that this is the United States of America and not the Shangri La?
