America must wake up, target its misfortunes

We are told by President Barack Obama that education is very important and that we are lagging in this endeavor. But then the first thing the government cuts from the budget is spending on education, national defense, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Come on, give me a break.

We as a super power give away billions of dollars in foreign aid, then borrow from countries to support our misfortunes here at home.

When will we wake up from this horrible dream? We cannot support our senior citizens, we cannot support our poor, we cannot support our infrastructure. One day we will see a "Red Dawn" when we least expect it. Wake up, America.
