For America to find her groove
Average Joe's lot needs to improve.
All that we ask
Make this the task.
Visionaries, this does us behoove.

A little snip at this piece by Jim Manzi, The New American System, which I found via Joe Nocera's column yesterday. (Nocera focuses only on the first half of the piece. My trouble with it is in the second half, which has all the old Conservative canards, based on trickle down economics.) It is also a response to Frank Bruni's piece today, America the Shrunken. It is a very depressing, if accurate, essay.
