The current administration has done an impressive job of casting trivial (IMHO) problems as big ones - Transgenders in the military, Illegal voting, immigration, unfair international trade, etc. Or course, the Democrats aren’t much better.
When I think of the real problems facing the US, I come up with a list like this:
Antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Water shortages in the West.
The insolvency of Social Security.
The unaffordability of health care.
Lack of retirement savings for a huge portion of the population.
Global warming and the destruction of costal cities.
The decay of the US infrastructure.
What other problems which have been mostly ignored should be on this list?
