Millions of Americans have mistaken notions about our history, our Constitution and the simple, observable state of our country. It isn't a disaster, though politicians would like you to believe that. There are real problems though, that are tough to tackle and require a joint effort.
From the time George Washington raised his right hand and swore to support the Constitution and get better dentures, until right now, the country has been in hock. After getting us out of debt, Old Hickory could concentrate on his benevolent treatment of Native-Americans - like the Trail of Tears.
