It's not just America, basically any nation has this problem. The only solution is an extremely well organized, funded and objectively controlled education system. Don't know who's quote it was but its essence was, to help a nation in the long run 100+ years, education is the only way to go. For instance making 'world' history mandatory for everyone. The obvious reasons for this not happening is that it would threaten the powers that be.

George W. Bush will be hated for generations to come for being the man who destroyed America......NOT only for what he did while in office...but even more so for the door he opened up after he left office.
He left this country so completely devestated and destitute that it fell right into the arms of a hardline socialist regime.

So, can we turn this short bus around? Could there be a world ahead of us where the Detroit elementary school that had to ask parents for light bulbs and toilet paper is financially sound while Ann Coulter has to sell books out of a milk crate at the local gun show? The trickle down should come soon, but for now the big signal that the era of style over substance (and not that much style) is on it's way out (probably through the "in" door) is the election of Barack Obama.
