3. The problem is our spending is skewed to provide for the elderly and it will crowd out what we can
spend on the young and investments for a better future.

We are on a downward path as a nation while the up and coming countries like China focus on it's kids and it's future.

This means a declining standard of living for all and I guess that is fine if we decide this is where we want to go. But Americans won't be able to expect we can use all the worlds resources like we have been doing.
