3. It may have begun with Nixon's corruption and lawlessness

 

Followed by Reaganís overturning of the Fairness Doctrine, which cleared the way for Fox News. Then there were Reaganís huge cuts in income tax rates for the wealthy, and we canít forget that Republicans in Congress craft every law with an eye towards steering power and wealth away from its constituents and towards corporations and wealthy individuals.

We used to be a can-do country, which led to our status as a global leader. But now we are a no-can-do country, with no faith in ourselves, our leaders, or our institutions.

I have faith that we can turn this around, but we have some hard work and hard times ahead of us.
