1)America is losing its edge
-some of this is inevitable as other countriesimprove their competitiveness, some of this is self inflicted.
2)Financial strength is vital to competitiveness
 –it’s core to a healthyeconomy, job creation, vibrant education / culture and military leadership.
3)Positive cash flow and a strong balance sheet are key to financialstrength
 –bottom line, it’s bad to spend more than one brings in, as Americais doing. In effect, as each day passes –with our rising losses and debt load – we rob just a little bit more from the future.
4)America does not need to lose its edge, it needs conviction andleadership to move its ‘business model’ in the right direction
 –we are allin this together, we need to understand and acknowledge our problems andagree to move forward with collective inspiration and sacrifice.
5)American tax dollars fund our government
 –we all need to understandwhere our taxes go and decide if we believe our hard-earned dollars are put totheir highest-and-best use. The politicians we elect decide where our moneygoes.
