Why We're Screwed (if we don't adapt quickly) For the sake of this discussion, let's try to avoid actually talking about who is to blame or which political party is to blame, or which ideology is to blame... and just talk about the problem we're in, how bad it is, and what needs to be done to fix it. What sacrifices need to be made, and how quickly we need to make them. There's no more denying there's a problem. The only issue now is what the solution looks like. Please avoid the blame game. Stay on topic so we can have a meaningful discussion about actual practical solutions. While I disagree with the article's author when he says we don't spend too much on Education and Defense... he's 100% right about the MAIN problem.
