Can we reverse the slide?
By Byron McNutt

LAST WEEK, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid sullenly said that when he went to Washington 30 years ago the approval rating of Congress was at 45%. Today, according to the Gallup polling organization, the rating is a dismal 10%, the lowest it has ever been.

We should all be concerned about this. The current state of political paralysis is being called a “crisis of confidence” in this great country. Many are warning that, if we don’t act, our political dysfunction could become permanent.

Reversing this destructive trend is a key to future American progress. Without a change, America will continue losing respect around the world and will suffer further defeats in international competitiveness. We need a sense of shared purpose.

If we really want to stop this slide from grace, get America
