There are many problems facing the United States these days.  Some of them are purely political, although most are simply problems that can be resolved outside of political influence.

Most of the these problems, however, do not have an easy solution and require a huge shift in collective paradigm thinking in order to even come close to resolving many of them.  Here are just a few:

  • The National Divorce Rate.  Divorce is an ugly government business.  Ever since State governments got involved in marriage, the inevitable consequence would be the destruction of marriage as that is the usually modus operandi of any government.  There is no easy fix for the high divorce rates as it requires a reversal of decades of feminists thinking regarding marriage.  The easiest thing to do is to encourage wives to be stay-at-home moms and wives.  Divorce becomes less about whether or not a wife is happy and more about a serious breach of marital commitments when the wife is dependent on the husband.
  • Massive Immigration.  Immigration is a serious problem, mostly because at their current levels, the liberty culture is being eroded rapidly.  Most immigrants come from countries where extreme Statism is common.  The problem, however, is that most people who oppose immigration also support the War on Drugs.  The War on Drugs is largely why the countries many Hispanic immigrants are coming here in the first place.  End the War on Drugs, legalize all “controlled substances” and you will see those countries bring themselves out of a whole lot of economic Hell.  This will have the effect of Hispanics staying in their countries where they would rather be in the first place.
  • Terrorism.  Most terrorism is caused by specific individuals who have specific associations.  Unfortunately, it appears that our government is either incredibly power-hungry (evil) or incredibly incompetent and so they are deeming just about every normal US citizen a terrorist.  The Second Set of Books demands regular searches of clearly non-violent citizens at airports and now on the streets.  The problem can be largely solved by simply pulling our military forces out of all foreign countries and placing them here at home.  While there will be fallout, largely due to our past actions, over time foreign terrorists will stop blaming the US because they will be unable to pin anything on us.
  • Healthcare.  Healthcare is huge mess in the United States, largely due to heavy regulation and a quasi-Socialist system.  The only real solution is for Americans to treat health insurance like insurance and start paying for most of their care out of pocket.  Do not simply wait for the government to approve a plan that works this, do it yourself.  Also, try and purchase your own plan outside of your employer.  COBRA is extremely expensive.
  • Obesity.  This problem is largely due to market forces pushing unhealthy ingredients into our foods.  Corn syrup has already been shown to cause more obesity than regular sugar.  On a Federal level, corn is subsidized while sugar is heavily regulated and taxed (see tariffs).  The only solution is for Americans to not buy GMO foods and avoid corn syrup and other unnatural ingredients.  Also, stop eating so much.
  • Abortion.  The decimation of Generation X and beyond is largely due to a lack of charity among the female gender.  Instead of looking at themselves as potential mothers, they instead see themselves as potential workers, usually out of envy rather than drive for success.  The only way we are going to eliminate abortion is to encourage women to become mothers and wives, not workers and wage-slaves.
  • Consumerism.  Mass consumerism and the encouragement of short-term gains versus long-term future outlooks are the driving force of our economy.  These attitudes are also what caused things like the housing bubble and why we see close to 50 million people on food stamps.  Stop living in the moment and actually try and live for the future and the future of your children.

There are a lot more problems, of course, but these are the major ones I am seeing.  The solutions I’ve offered are mostly non-political ones, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight for political solutions.  Just don’t expect much from any politician since most of them are among the greatest failures in life.
