America is facing a profound triple crisis: the economy is in disarray, the government has been transformed by the Bush presidency, and the U.S. is deeply involved in endless wars. These pressing issues threaten all of us, Republicans and Democrats alike, and as citizens we bear the ultimate responsibility. What can we do to fix America's problems before the damage becomes irreparable?
