15. During those years we had the Interstate Highway system built

public hospitals built, polio etc vaccines developed, men sent to the moon, federal turn back funds for city water systems and sewer system, public radio and television.

But for some reason we can not do those big things any more. No on knows why.


Edit to add: and a lot of those years the Democratic Party controlled the congress, executive and judicial branches.
