Thoughts on the headlines

From the headlines:

The 10th Amendment is becoming a rally point for the Tea Party Movement. That’s the one that says,

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Strange that no one mentions Article 1, Section 7?

Growing populace outrage over the government spending. But no one says what they’d cut. Hmm….

Too much socialism. So, shall we eliminate social security, medicare, medicaid, unemployment benefits, federal aid to education, federal pension security, etc?

The divisions within the public are too numerous to recount. We have a severely divided public, arguing and angry. However, those with the loudest voices provide few if any solutions. We have a Congress (both houses) who appear more interested in winning elections than serving the public good.

What are the answers?
