Feeling hopeless about economy won't fix it

I read Nate McCullough's column ("Government the problem, not the solution," Jan. 9, Page 10A) with interest and sadness. I read a message of hopelessness and simplemindedness.

One can usually see into the thinking of the editorial writer by how he sums up his message in the last paragraph. Here, McCullough resigns himself to two options for hope for our economic future - personality and money. I am frustrated that he did not express some ideas.

Ideas, reason and logic are what change people, policies and the world. Seeing that McCullough has forgotten this point leaves me a little saddened.
