Only most Americans aren't brains or fruitpickers. Most Americans just don't have the drive to do what needs to be done for America to become #1 again. I grew up poor, with a single parent, and I still went to college. A lot of Americans born into far better situations than mine choose not to go to college, or they drop out of college. And yes there are many options, they can enlist and the government helps to a certain degree but the problem is that on top of not wanting to get educated, most Americans appear to be cowards as well. This combination does not help America become #1 again. The military can make us #1 again but then we need to bring back the draft and actually WIN the wars we start. The economy can make us #1 again but we'd have to actually make getting a masters degree and or phd far more common.
