The most important and pressing thing Americans must do to preserve the country is to stop politicians from buying votes from non-taxpayers with abundant gifts from the treasury. There is no constitutional right to vote and America cannot continue to let those who do not contribute to society vote themselves more and more entitlements via self serving politicians. Only income tax or real estate taxpayers should be permitted to vote. That will effectively disconnect politicians from the welfare state entitlement class and connect them to the working class who support this country with blood sweat and taxes. Failure to do this will continue the progression that will soon reach the tipping point that makes working and supporting this country unfeasible. We need to return to near 100% self reliance and self responsibility if we are to survive as a nation. If we do this now, over time, the coming tipping point will start to reverse and the situation will correct itself. We cannot survive with only half of the population paying taxes and that number dwindling daily.
