As for fixing it. It isn't gonna happen as long as we have bi-partisan bitching, and a congress that can vote for their own pay raises.
There is nothing I can physically do to fix the economy, so why bother? I can vote for someone who might know what they're doing, but the problem is so deep and so complex that it'll take years to really fix.
I have a job, and I will continue to pay my bills and save up money till I can improve my situation. Personally, I believe that that's what most people should be doing. Saving up, making smart investments, going to school, etc.
We need more people starting their own businesses, and we need existing big businesses to start taking more risks and hiring more people.
We need intelligent leaders that actually give a fuck about the country, instead of just being in it for the money/power.
In my eyes, the main problem is in the mindset of the American people in general. Everyone is so quick to toss blame around, and automatically assume that since things started going downhill when X party was in power, Y party can fix it, and vice-versa.
Things like the Occupy Wall-Street movements are just plain silly to me. The word "entitlement" grates on my ears. Everyone has chances to improve their life, regardless of their background. You can look at immigrants, coming from third world countries with basically nothing, working hard in shitty jobs to put themselves, or their children through college.
Wasn't there a big thing a while back about how the "American Dream" was dead, because it supposedly revolved around owning your own house? Personally, I think that the American Dream should be to feel that sense of accomplishment you get when you earn your way into comfortable living by working hard and investing your money wisely.
tl;dr, people need to stop bitching about shit so much, gawd.
