Can we start from scratch?

This economy has taught a lot of us great lessons.

Lessons on frugality, on saving, on living below our means instead of above them.

We have learned to manage our time, become more productive, have learned to be humble, removed our ego from our everyday life. We, Americans, in short, have learned very valuable lessons, that will most likely stick with us for the rest of our lives, like the great depression stuck with our grandparents.

We have lost jobs, assets, savings, our pride, ..... so many things.

Well isn't it time that our Government experience the same cleansing?

Isn't it time to give them the boot? a piece of humble pie?

We need leadership that loves America beyond the economic interests of the few. We need corporations focused on improving our Country's future.... I think it could happen, don't you?

removing ego is key! I believe anyone can bounce back if they have the drive! :)

Ditto that, Henry.

  It is time for the Bureaucrats, the Congressional Aides, the White House Staffers, the City and County Commissioners, the State Department of BS Inspectors, the Union Leaders, and others to undergo a major "cleansing".

I like Governor Rick Perry's comment that we need to give the current administration their "pink slips" in order to get this great country working again.

Henry, we need to boot out the politicians we have next election and vote in real leaders. Yes, Americans have learned some valuable lessons, but the members of our government have not.

Yes, let's take a "mulligan" and try to "do over" the mess we've got.

Henry, I agree one hundred percent! (which is why I suggested this post). I hope more Americans agree too!

A do over is a great idea, however we have to go back pretty far I think....

Henry, great idea.

Unfortunately we are no longer in control of the government and to get them to start from scratch would be a total up rising of the American people.

Which won't happen as we are all to complacent cars, homes , x boxes and so on.

Enjoy the day

Fabulous idea Henry!  I think we should send all of our politicians--including the President, Frugal Living for Dummies or make sure they all take a Dave Ramsey class when they get back from Vacation.  They obviously don't know how to budget any more.  Since the down turn in the housing market I for one am amazed at how much less I can live on!  Let them live on "rice & beans" with the rest of America!
