Leadership


or a complete lack thereof.  At one time, say the 1960s, the United States was still the undisputed leader in pushing the technology barriers forward.  At that time it was the NASA and the space program.

Before that it was Thomas Edison and Alexander Bell, the Wright Brothers and Henry Ford.

But, I submit, the space program was the last clear leadership effort by the United States.  Oh, we have Steven Jobs and Bill Gates, Cisco and high-speed internet, but the United States has been bypassed by scientific efforts in Germany, China and a whole host of smaller countries.

A lot of weenies around St Ronnie of Ray-Gun, decided they’d rather be rich instead of a citizen of a world leader and it has been downhill ever since.
