I think we can fix America by...
That's a bold question- not all parts of America are broken, but one can not deny the destructive result of the collapse of the middle class jobs and splitting into either low-skill, low wage or high skill high wage. Now, when you 'make' something- a toy, an airplane wing, there are many jobs needed to support the manufacturing of that thing. That's why it's important to keep manufacturing in the US, and make it better. Make it cleaner and more equitable and recognize the cost of cheap, imported goods is the destruction of the middle class and the exodus of entire ecosystems of thought and production. So, I would fix America by moving heaven and Earth to return manufacturing back to the US. Jobs and good wages solve many problems.
