All spending in governments should be more efficient. But it's impossible to study government efficiency when we can't even agree on annual budgets? I just know I want to minimize government and maximize the private sector.

I don't care how much the public sector has increased. I just know that the private sector can do quite well without government. Things like roads, or landing strips, or whatever the government intervenes to provide, can all be dealt with by the private sector. Again, place a new business in Timbuktu, let it have 1000 employees, and over time around that business all sorts of crap will pop up and then a government is formed and then life is never the same again. Governments just seem to spend and spend with no accountability.
The USA is 'leaning towards socialism' today so you can lean. We are creating a quasi socialist's society, a bit of a hybrid, because government feels the need to protect everyone.
I don't agree at all with you about dwindling opportunities in the USA. Any kid who focuses on their education, achieves a college degree in a career-oriented curriculum, understands a decent work ethic, and spends more time thinking about work and innovation than they do beer and babes and partying...they can make a very decent life in the USA.
Did you know both our problems and the solutions can be found simply by looking in our mirrors...and...Never confuse the extraordinary stuff I think and write with that of a well-balanced person!
When Americans wake up so will the country...until then...we remain comatose and hopeless.
If you're not careful with your life's decisions, you will spend all your time in a cul-de-sac!
